Mars Rover Stuck
Spirit, one of the two Mars rovers, is stuck in loose dirt. A team at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is working with a model of the rover here on earth trying to diagnose a solution. Team members are worried that Spirit could work itself further into the dirt, further complicating its extrication. Designed for a primary mission of 3 months, Spirit & its twin Opportunity have been collecting data from Mars since 2004.
