If only people could visit Mars, there would be so much to learn! Since we haven’t figured out how to send humans to the Red Planet, scientists have developed a special mechanism—a rover named Opportunity—instead. Oppy worked hard to discover Mars’ secrets and its planned three-month voyage lasted for 15 years. And scientists learned lots until a storm came and changed the rover’s trajectory. Hello, Opportunity is a special story that introduces Opportunity’s groundbreaking Mars mission, lessons learned, and its unexpected ending.
Shaelyn McDaniel grew up in South Florida before moving to New York for a digital marketing career with kids' books. In college, she majored in English. As a kid she assumed humans had already been to Mars, and as an adult she remains incensed that we haven’t (yet). This is her debut picture book.
