Spirit on Mars
Spirit on Mars Spirit is the small bright dot to the left of Mars' Home Plate in this image, taken on July 16, 2009 by the High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE) on Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO). If Spirit does not break free, it may rest there forever. The other bright areas around Home Plate are spots where the rover has churned up the soil. NASA/JPL/University of Arizona
