Hi all, there's obviously lots going on that I'll need to catch you up on at some point. Both rovers are on the move again as the dust storms abate and they gain power back. Spirit is up on top of Home Plate finally, and heading south across the top. Opportunity is going into Victoria Crater!! We did a toe-dip maneuver on Monday, which was to assess the trafficability and the rover's ability to maneuver down the slope and to take pictures of what a good route down might be. Here's a tiny movie of the toe-dip navcam images that show all is well and we are excited!!
