SPIRIT UPDATE: - Jan 22, 2004, 10:35 am PST

?????????????????????????????????????? The Mars Exploration Rover Spirit radioed a beep Thursday morning confirming that it had received a transmission from Earth. Still, it has not returned any data since early Wednesday. Flight-team engineers for NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Project are working to diagnose the cause of communications difficulties.


Plans for Opportunity's entry, descent, and landing are also underway. The spacecraft is on a correct course for its landing Saturday night, around 9:05 pm PST (Sunday, 5:05 am UTC).
