Opportunity drove only once this past week, nearing the 24-kilometer (15-mile) odometry mark.
On Sol 2382 (Oct. 6, 2010), the rover covered over 94 meters (308 feet) on her trek to Endeavour crater. With the use of autonomous navigation, the rover collects many more data products which fill the available flash memory.
