I know the recent dust-devils have shown evidence of high wind speeds, but I didnt think we'd see this ohmy.gif

Geez...I hope it doesn't blow Spirit over so all we see is a static shot of some ground and sky...maybe the tool arm would be able to help turn it over...

Looks like it was part of a full L2->L7 + r's sequence that they sometimes do - I've bagged the RAD's from the workbook but only the RTH's are down so far, the thumbnails - but hey - see for yourself

Amazing...
Is there any instrument on Spirit capable of measuring windspeeds?

No, but they could stick the 'test' rover here in a wind tunnel to see what it would take to blow it over. Unfortunately, they won't be able to duplicate the temperature swings Spirit has been through for over 400 Sols that may have caused the adhesive to lose its grip.

They finished the student sundial program some time ago - so I'm not sure they'd be that bothered.

Here is the latest from the Mission Manager Report:

"After another failed drive on Sol 441, rover engineers were puzzled by an apparent shift in the position of the pancam calibration target. Further analysis is planned after data from the next ODY pass becomes available."
