Spirit Remains Silent at Troy – sols 2431-2437, November 04-10, 2010:

Spirit remains silent at her location on the west side of Home Plate. No communication has been received from the rover since Sol 2210 (March 22, 2010).

The project continues to listen for Spirit with the Deep Space Network and Mars Odyssey orbiter for autonomous recovery communication from the low-power fault case. The project is also conducting a paging technique called “Sweep & Beep” strategy to stimulate the rover in the case of a mission-clock fault.

Total odometry is unchanged at 7,730.50 meters (4.80 miles).
