“These will be temperatures that are colder than anything we’ve seen before on the surface of Mars, and we will have this extended period of time of not hearing from the rover. So that’s going to be frustrating, and that’ll be, you know, challenging for the team. But it’s something we’ll just have to be disciplined about. And eventually, when power allows, the rover will wake up and will begin to talk to us and we can resume activities in the [Martian] spring.”
