Hey! I’m still here too…!

Recently the Mars rover OPPORTUNITY has been hogging the news, departing Victoria Crater for Endeavour Crater, but here sister rover, Spirit, is still there, on Mars, taking pictures and doing great science. She hasn’t been in the news so much because she’s been enjoying a much-needed and well-deserved rest halfway around the planet, on a flat, rock-strewn feature called “Homeplate”. Well, Spirit has just moved… just a little bit, but it’s a start… and hopefully will be movng off HP soon and heading towards a new target for investigation. So, this seems like a good time to take a look at the view from The Forgotten Rover…

If you click on that you’ll see a full size version, and will be able to see the beautiful fine detail carved onto the top of those dust dunes by the gentle martian winds…
