Quiet day on Mars. Didn't hear from [Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter] this AM so I'll wait to hear from Odyssey tomorrow AM. Then, I'll start to "unstow" my 7.7 ft arm.
Didn't receive new commands today, so I carried out a pre-programmed sequence to gather data and send it home. New commands coming tomorrow.
The terrain around here is the same for miles in all directions. I'm going to dig into the terrain but not drive across it.
Most recent forecast: Max temp: -22F; Min Temp: -112 F. You can download a Mars weather widget here.
