Opportunity is driving again and has now covered 21 kilometers (13 miles) of odometry on Mars.
The pancam mast assembly (PMA) azimuth error from Sol 2257 (May 30, 2010), has been attributed to a problem within the miniature thermal emission spectrometer (Mini-TES) instrument.
An investigation of the Mini-TES is ongoing. The PMA has been restored to operation for imaging (not Mini-TES use).
On Sol 2267 (June 10, 2010), a quick fine attitude (QFA) was performed to refine the rover’s attitude knowledge and to correct for gyro drift. Additional drive direction imagery was also collected.
On Sol 2270 (June 13, 2010), Opportunity drove for the first time since the PMA anomaly, covering over 70 meters (230 feet). The rover drove again on Sol 2272 (June 15, 2010), achieving almost 72 meters (236 feet) of distance to the east.
As of Sol 2272 (June 15, 2010), solar array energy production was 297 watt-hours, atmospheric opacity (Tau) was 0.280 and the solar array dust factor is 0.570.
Total odometry is 21,005.47 meters (21.00 kilometers, or 13.05 miles).
