September 30 Planetary Society Mars Rover Update

Another great rover update by A.J.S Rayl at the Planetary Society:


Highlights: Teams hopes to have Spirit winter at Von Braun/Goddard
after investigating Home Plate. Opportunity will be at her present
location for some weeks, investigating the top of the bright layer
inside Victoria Crater. The bright layer actually has three distinct
layers, which will be named after influential sedimentologists and
stratigraphers, the top layer being named 'Steno'.
