Spirit ‘stuck’ APXS contributions When Spirit was stuck in Troy, where she remains to this day, she had power to burn for a good long time and took almost daily overnight, long duration APXS measurements. “This provided us with our calibration data for Opportunity,” said Scott VanBommel, now a postdoc at WUSTL and MER team member since 2014. “My undergrad project and Master’s project involved the Spirit dataset, so really my whole career and introduction to Mars research, I owe to Spirit,” he said. “It’s kind of a mixed bag of emotions there.” NASA / JPL-Caltech / simulation of rover in scene ©Astro0 2009
