Spirit is alive..!

… and has phoned home! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

It was feared that yet another dust storm had killed the Mars rover by blocking out the Sun and depriving it of the solar power that keeps it going, but the MER team has received communications from the rover and, although she’s still at such low power levels that they’re decsribed as “critical” she’s still there, still hanging on, so it seems that yet AGAIN the MER team have beaten the odds, and beaten another attempt by Mars to kill one of their spacecraft. Great work!
