SUMMARY: In case you'd forgotten about them, NASA's twin Mars Exploration spacecraft, Spirit and Opportunity, are still on their way to the Red Planet. Spirit made its third trajectory correction last week to fine-tune its flight path as it gets closer. Both rovers have rebooted their computers in the past two weeks to remove any data errors that could have caused by the recent powerful solar storms. Spirit should arrive at the Gusev Crater on January 4, 2004, while Opportunity will land Meridiani Planum on January 25.
