Spirit Wraps Up Work In Voltaire Region (http://www.spacedaily.com/news/mars-mers-05zzzg.html)

Spirit is just wrapping up work in the Voltaire region ... Starting Monday, we'll be making our move toward the summit. This will go more slowly than we'd like, since we're in restricted sols with Spirit now... so for awhile we'll only be able to drive every other sol. But each drive will take us closer to the top, and closer to what we're all waiting for... that view down the south side of Husband Hill ...

... At Meridiani, Opportunity is on bedrock! It's the first bedrock that we've seen up close on that side of the planet in months, and it feels very good. We've just put in our first RAT hole in a very long time, and we'll be studying it for a little while before moving on ....
