Spirit Problem Found

The NASA team reports they have found the problem with Spirit that was causing the Mars rover to continually reboot. They narrowed it down to some bad flash memory (they probably used Sandisk). While Spirit isn't back to normal, at least they can communicate with it properly now. Hopefully it can be fixed permanently soon. Thanks Slashdot.

Oh dear, someone commented on /.: "The Spirit is willing, but the flash is weak."

In a related story Spirit's twin, Opportunity, is scheduled to land on Mars in about two hours.
