Opportunity Keeps On Driving To Endeavour Crater


Opportunity continues to make good progress toward Endeavour crater as solar energy levels improve.

On Sol 2281 (June 24, 2010), the rover completed over 70 meters (230 feet), driving east/southeast.

On Sol 2283 (June 26, 2010), the rover headed 57 meters (187 feet) to the northeast to avoid some large ripples.

The rover drove again on Sol 2286 (June 29, 2010), covering over 70 meters (230 feet) to the east.

As of Sol 2286 (June 29, 2010), solar array energy production has improved to 354 watt-hours, atmospheric opacity (Tau) was 0.295 and the solar array dust factor is 0.577.

Total odometry is 21,408.21 meters (21.41 kilometers, or 13.30 miles).
