Very well illustrated. Let's have JPL run a simulation of this, and if successful, and push out the commands to mars!

and Did this work? Is the Spirit rover free?

I watched someone do this same thing on Extreme Loggers, or maybe Ax Men, when the huge truck got stuck in the mud, they used the crane to tripod themselves out. Good work, Julian, remember to study and keep trying to grow up SMART!
