Spirit Suffers a Setback

As you may have gathered from the hastily typed post below, Spirit has gone quiet – kinda. NASA are describing it as a “serious anomaly”, which isn’t good. It is actually responding, however, it just isn’t broadcasting what it’s supposed to be broadcasting. According to one of the technicians such events aren’t unusual if you look at all space missions, so there’s certainly no need to write it off just yet. Opportunity, the second rover, should be landing in less than 48hrs and who knows, maybe Beagle 2 will call home after getting lonely.

That’s it for today, it’s way to hot in here for me to stay long!
