Mars Rovers

Time for a Mars update! First, both peripatetic rovers are still going strong almost two years after they landed!! Opportunity is on the edge of Victoria Crater. Spirit is has been all over the Columbia Hills. It gets better! The new Mars Reconnaissance orbiter snapped a photo of Opportunity from space. The resolution is good enough to see the little guy’s shadow!

And Mars Recon is the new kid in orbit. Mars Odyssey and Mars Express have been sending back high resolution photos for several years already.
