What's Next for the Rovers?
Apr 13, 2004 - With the announcement that the twin Mars Exploration Rovers have had their missions extended, scientists and engineers have big plans for the robots. The extended mission for Spirit will see the rover make the journey to the distant Columbia Hills. Opportunity will make a similarly long series of drives to reach Endurance Crater and then to some unusual "etched terrain" further to the South. One short term goal will be for the rovers to calibrate the dusty Martian skies by pointing their panoramic cameras up while overhead satellites look down.
