Spirit shimmies sideways, sols 1,713-1,715
Spirit continued its attempt to bump up the slope of Home Plate on sol 1,715, but its attempt to drive upward resulted in a sideways shimmy instead. An animation of Spirit's motion from sols 1,709 to 1,715 can be downloaded here (Quicktime format, 340 kb).
