Opportunity Mars Rover Passes 10-Kilometer Mark

Opportunity Passes 10-Kilometer Mark February 7, 2007
[Opportunity's view of its tracks]
NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity extended its cumulative Martian driving record to more than 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) by crossing 50.51 meters (165.7 feet) of flat ground during the 1,080th Martian day since arriving on Mars. This view shows the surroundings at the completion of the day's drive. It is a mosaic of frames taken by Opportunity's navigation camera.
The drive continued Opportunity's clockwise progress around the rim of "Victoria Crater," which is visible near the horizon. Opportunity began its fourth year of exploring Mars in January 2007. Its mission was originally planned for three months, with a driving-distance goal of 600 meters (1,969 feet).
