A while back when the Discovery Mars rover got stuck in a sand dune I assumed the worst. Hey, it’s gone on much longer than anyone thought. The rover owes us nothing.
Tonight, thought it’s not on the NASA site yet, it seems the rover has worked its way free, spinning its wheels and advancing inches at a time.
Another reason to specify robots for your next space exploration.
Blogger’s note: The NASA site is also showing some pretty cool photos of ‘dust devils‘ on the Martian surface, as photographed by the Spirit rover.
