Mars Exploration Rover - Spirit

In this article there is a chance to know the Spirit rover and its different work. The main function of the Spirit Rover is to travel to Red Planet on Mars and explore the terrain.

The Spirit rover is also known as MER-A (Mars Exploration Rover – A) or MER -2. Spirit Rover is active on Mars from 2004 to 2010. Spirit Rover was one of NASA's Rover mission. Spirit Rover successfully landed on Mars on Tuesday, January 4, 2004 on Mars. Spirits Rover spent $ 400 million. Spirit Rover was produced in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Spirit Rover worked 20 times better than expected NASA scientists.

Spirit Rover was stuck in soft ground on May 1, 2009. On March 22, 2010, communications with Spirit Rover were discontinued. JPL continued with attempts to regain contact with Spirit Rover on May 24, 2011, and finally NASA's Spirit Rover mission was completed.

The Pasadena is a division of the California Institute of Technology, Jet Propulsion Laboratory NASA Space Science and Washington's Mars Research Rover operates the project. Spirit Rover is a six-wheeled, solar powered robot with a height of 1.5 meters, 2.3 meters wide and 1.6 meters long, as well as 180 kilograms of weight. The maximum speed of Spirit Rover is 5 centimeters per second.

Spirit Rover arrived at Red Planet in January 2004, and it was found that life on Mars is sometimes present. Carbonate on Mars and after Mars landing on Spirit Rover Hematein's evidence was found, minerals that are associated with the water's atmosphere. Spirit Rover has often faced the challenges of technical difficulties and, despite six years, continued to provide data to scientists on Earth.

Solar arrays in Spirit Rover produce about 140 watts a day for four hours a day, and lithium ion batteries for recharge energy for use at night. The operating temperature of Spirit Rover is believed to be -40 to +40 degrees Celsius. Spirit Router's onboard computer uses 128 DRAM, 3 EEPROM memory and CPU. Spirit Rover stuck on flat ground due to its temperature decreasing.
