  Spirit Mars Rover in 'McMurdo' Panorama

Spirit Mars Rover in 'McMurdo' Panorama
Image credit: ASA/JPL-Caltech/Cornell Univ./Arizona State Univ.

Uploader comment: This 360-degree view, called the "McMurdo" panorama, comes from the panoramic camera (Pancam) on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit. From April through October 2006, Spirit stayed on a small hill known as "Low Ridge." There, the rover's solar panels were tilted toward the sun to maintain enough solar power for Spirit to keep making scientific observations throughout the winter on southern Mars.
