Spirit's got a clear path to Von Braun

...or at least Spirit has a clear sight line to Von Braun, and the latest views from the Pancam are pretty awesome. Sadly there's no color data for this view. Von Braun is the pointy bit to the left side of this three-image mosaic. Goddard is the darker slab that tilts off to the left of Von Braun.Actually, I take back my remark above; the lack of color is not so sad. Spirit has better things to do than to sit around snapping picture postcards; the rover is driving, driving, driving, putting more meters on the odometer in the race to get to those fascinating-looking targets while the getting is good. Spirit's drivers are shooting to get the rover there in time to do some good science before autumn returns to Gusev crater. Go Spirit!
