Opportunity, also known as MER-B (Mars Exploration Rover – B) or MER-1, is a robotic rover active on Mars since 2004. Launched on July 7, 2003 as part of NASA's Mars Exploration Rover program, it landed in Meridiani Planum on January 25, 2004, three weeks after its twin Spirit (MER-A) touched down on the other side of the planet. With a planned 90 sol duration of activity, Spirit functioned until getting stuck in 2009 and ceased communications in 2010, while Opportunity remains active as of 2016, having already exceeded its operating plan by 7008372189600000000♠11years,290days (in Earth time). Opportunity has continued to move, gather scientific observations, and report back to Earth for over 47 times its designed lifespan.
Mission highlights include the initial 90 sol mission, finding extramartian meteorites such as Heat Shield Rock (Meridiani Planum meteorite), and over two years studying Victoria crater. It survived dust-storms and reached Endeavour crater in 2011, which has been described as a "second landing site".
While in the hospital, Susan receives a visit from Julie who tells Susan her mother, Sophie, is coming to visit her the following day. Susan becomes annoyed at this news because Sophie is known for attention seeking antics and for making every situation about her. Sophie and Susan's Aunt Claire visit and Susan is shocked at her mother's apparent selfishness when she tells Mike she can't give Susan a kidney because she's going away on a three-month cruise. Susan becomes frustrated with Sophie for not even finding out if she's a match. Julie offers her kidney, but is sad to discover she's not a match for her mother. Susan remains angry at Sophie until Claire visits her and announces that Sophie has cancer and that's why she can't give her a kidney. Claire makes Susan promise not to tell Sophie she knows about her illness as she's trying to make up for all of the years where everything had to revolve around her. Susan and Sophie reconcile and make plans to spend time together after Sophie's "cruise".
Greatest! is the fourth album by American singer-songwriter Johnny Cash, released on Sun Records on 12 January 1959 (see 1959 in music). It was Cash's third record on the label, which he had left the previous year to join Columbia Records. By the time the album was released, Cash had already recorded The Fabulous Johnny Cash, his first album with Columbia. This overlap would continue until 1964 with Sun releasing additional albums and singles of previously unreleased material in parallel with Cash's Columbia releases.
The tracks on Greatest! were recorded between July 1955 and July 1958. Six out of the twelve songs became singles, with "Get Rhythm" topping the Country charts and becoming the most successful one. The album was rereleased on Varèse Sarabande on May 6, 2003 with four additional tracks, two of them being alternate versions of songs already on the record.
The collection does not include any new songs, except for a re-recording of the 1960s cover version of "Cool Jerk" (the 'original' version of the cover was already on the Go-Go's second album, Vacation), which was also released as the one single from the compilation, reaching #60 in the UK Singles Chart, in 1991, this way becoming the second Go-Go's song to ever enter the British charts (the third and highest UK hit from the band would eventually be "The Whole World Lost Its Head", peaking at #29, from their second Greatest Hits album, 1994 Return to the Valley of The Go-Go's).
