Rover Driver Blog!

Posted by Ryan Anderson

To celebrate the 5 earth-year anniversary of Spirit’s langing on Mars, Scott Maxwell, one of the rover drivers at JPL has begun a blog called “Mars and Me”. In it, he is posting his daily notes from back in the early days of the mission when everyone was living on Mars time. It’s really interesting to hear what it was like early in the from an engineer’s point of view, since I didn’t get involved in the mission until summer of 2007, and I mostly see the science side. He’s only on Sol 3 so far, so there are plenty of posts to come!
