LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- NASA announced the end of its Opportunity rover's mission on Wednesday, 15 years after its arrival on Mars.

The announcement followed NASA's last attempt to communicate with the rover on Tuesday night, which got no response.

The rover has not been heard from for eight months since a planet-wide dust storm on the red planet in June last year. Mission team members have tried to rouse the rover ever since, but failed to set up communication again.
