Opportunity On the Ground


Great to see that Opportunity made it safely to Mars. "Two for two" as the Americans are saying.

Already there are two noteworthy items. First the exposed ridge of bedrock clearly visible on the photo and in easy roving distance. Second the completley different landscape - very dark soil and hardly any boulders. Just compare the shot above with that for Spirit a week or so ago.

Question is are the engineers going to put Opportunity through memory tests before doing anything to try and avoid Spirit's problems, or just go for it?
