Here's a fairly impressive new panorama from the Sprirt rover, half the way up Husband hill:
Mars panorama, 4.3 megabytes (http://marsrovers.jpl.nasa.gov/gallery/press/spirit/20050113a/site_A89_CY_navcam_360_cyl-A365R1.jpg)

Note the little impact crater full of sand that it is heading towards. Note also the smooth surface of the rocks near it. Behind you can see the tracks where spirit has been spinning its wheels in the sand trying to get up this soft surface. In the distance in some directions you can see the walls of Gustav crater.

Great picture!
Thanks for it!
Looks like there's a good chance to get out from there, now... jejeje B)
