Update: Spirit and Opportunity NASA

On sol 26, which ended at 12:18 a.m. Friday, February 19, PST, Opportunity successfully obtained one final Moessbauer spectrometer reading of the trench, stowed the rover arm, and drove 15 meters (50 feet) to the “El Capitan” area. The drive was Opportunity’s longest yet and required the vehicle and planners to skirt the trench and avoid the lander.
