I thought they were still dealing with the flash memory problems...

I guess Spirit can walk and chew gum at the same time. smile.gif
Great to see those moving pictures!

I guess this is what Maxwell meant by his cryptic comment:

The jarosite reference doesn't necessarily narrow it down, but it seems like Oppy approaching yet another(!) mystery rock is just another day in Meridiani and not worthy of special comment by SS.

edit: Or, perhaps the comment is just in reference to the fact that for the first time in a long time both rovers will be moving. Or, SS says that all the time and Scott just decided to make note of it today. Such is the trouble with interpreting cryptic remarks (or cryptic postings of ordinary remarks). laugh.gif

Great to see motion at the first attempt, and hopefully encouraging for the outcome. ISTR at Purgatory progress was glacial for many days. I wonder if/when/how often further MI imaging of the possible contact rock underneath Spirit will be done. Perhaps they might not be needed at all..?

One mars bar that they will image it again right after this first move.
