Sleep well, little rover

Just been on the NASA site and spotted that the rover Spirit appears to be in hibernation mode.

Previous Martian winters have bben survived because the rover could be tilted to catch the sun, that's no longer possible as it's bogged down in soft sand.

Having made it 6 years into a 3 month(!) mission, I hope Spirit survives.
