Hello, I am Dina Eldeeb from the Mars Exploration Rover project and I will be providing the Flight Director report for today, Monday, February 12th, 2007.
It is now late evening on sol 1106 for Spirit. Spirit has completed its IDD campaign of the ‘Montalva’ target, which is located along the ‘Troll’ outcrop. Spirit then drove about twelve meters back to ‘Tyrone’ to look at some white soil targets. In the upcoming week Spirit will make the long trek back to ‘Mitcheltree Ridge’, an area of great scientific interest.
On the other side of the planet, it is sol 1086, early morning for Opportunity. Opportunity’s odometer passed the ten kilometer mark, or 6.2 miles, on sol 1080. This is ten times the design requirement for the vehicle. Congratulations to the team for reaching this milestone.
In the upcoming week Opportunity will image Victoria Crater, looking for entry ways into and out of the crater.
That’s all for today, I’m Dina Eldeeb and that’s what’s happening on Mars today.
