Mars Rover


Spirit touched down in Gusev Crater this evening and began pumping back images that look as though they've come from a webcam. I saved a large (7 MB) concept photo in my ICT workspace.

Cornell University has excellent information concerning the Mars Mission and all the things inside the Rover:

  • Pancam
  • Mini-Thermal Emission Spectometer
  • Alpa Particle X-ray Spectometer
  • Mossbauer Specrometer
  • Rock Abrasion Tool
  • Imager
  • MarsDial
