Good afternoon, Iím Byron Jones and this is the Flight Directorís Report for the Mars Exploration Rovers. Itís Wednesday, July 6th.
On Spirit, today is sol 536 and sheís taken a break on her drive up the Husband Hill to take an Independence Day panorama and to attempt a rock scuff in that area.
Also, on the other side of Mars, Opportunity, itís sol 515. Sheís on her way down to Erebus crater, but after being stuck in a sand dune for about a month, weíve been taking the drive a little bit slower lately. We only went about eight meters yesterday and weíre bobbing and weaving around hazardous dunes toward Erebus crater.
Thanks for tuning in, Iím Byron Jones and thatís whatís happening on Mars today.
