Description:

This image shows the path (blue line) taken by the Mars Exploration Rover Spirit as it bounced down to its final resting spot in Gusev Crater, Mars. Data taken by Spirit during descent indicates that the rover bounced 28 times, including one dip into a crater. The green dot shows where the parachute bridle was cut, and the red dot indicates where the main retrorockets were fired. North is denoted by the red-tipped arrow in the white cross. This picture consists of reconstructed telemetry data mapped on top of surface images captured by the descent image motion estimation system camera located on the bottom of the rover.
