NASA is updating the control software for Spirit. The new software will correct some bugs that do not allow the rover to correctly proceed down or select the correct path to take to an object. The new update will also allow Spirit to recover quicker than it did 18 days after it landed from communication problems. When Opportunity’s update is made, similar problems will be corrected along with telling its heater to turn off and save the rovers power.
