Spirit Talks

During a 20 minutes session, starting at 13:26GMT, Spirit sent back usable data at 120bits/second. "The spacecraft sent limited data in a proper response to a ground command, and we're planning for commanding further communication sessions later today," said Mars Exploration Rover Project Manager Pete Theisinger. At 13:02, the flight team sent the command to transmit via the deep space network near Madrid, Spain.
