On 27 October, scientists reported that last year,

the mission detected seismic waves created by the biggest meteorite impacts ever seen on Mars

That's fucked up. Does Mars get hit more often than Earth, due to it being closer to the Asteroid Belt?

could also be because it's atmosphere is so thin, they don't burn up either

Perhaps your assumption is right

I think the next Rover re-design will be add a similar strong hair dryer device

I'd just attach a chair on the side and put a kerbal there to wipe off the panels from time to time.

Yeah, I think you must become the pioneer of Mars Exploration :-)

Unrelated but it feels so strange saying 'marsquake' but also it's even stranger saying 'earthquake on mars'

If only there was video footage of it! Sounds like a cool event to witness.

Could have solved the dust on the solar panels problem with a set of windshield wipers and a motor from an old truck, and saved a hundred million dollar space craft from being lost because of lack of power.

What do you make the wipers out of? How do you wipe the solar panels without scratching them up? This isn't rain.

Make the blades out of Teflon. Or use compressed gas from a remote controlled nozzle. The point is they should have thought of a way to solve this very predictable issue, also a scratched panel is better than no panel.
