Spirit is in a very difficult situation, JPLs John Callas, project manager for Spirit and its twin rover, Opportunity, said Monday. We are proceeding methodically and cautiously. It may be weeks before we try moving Spirit again. Meanwhile, we are using Spirits scientific instruments to learn more about the physical properties of the soil that is giving us trouble.
Editor's note: Looks like Spirit is in a really tough position. The improved power situation could help. The little rover that could will surely survive this problem, right? If not, what a mission it's been.
