SUMMARY: NASA controllers gave Opportunity the commands on Wednesday that would begin the process of getting the rover to stand up from its compact landing configuration. The rover has untucked its front wheels and latched its suspension system in place.

Repairs are continuing on Spirit, but operators don't have full control of the lander yet.
