Spirit's Long Journey, Sol 450 (Full Traverse)
More than 15 months after landing on Mars, NASA's Spirit rover is still going strong, having traveled a total of 4,276 meters (2.66 miles) as of martian day, or sol, 450 (April 8, 2005). This map shows the path (in yellow) Spirit has followed since landing in January 2004 at the site designated Columbia Memorial Station. Numbers in red indicate the rover's progress at selected sol numbers. The base map comprises images taken from orbit by the Mars Orbiter Camera on NASA's Mars Global Surveyor. The 500-meter scale bar is 1,640 feet long.
