NASA To Reformat Opportunity’s Memory From 125 Million Miles AwayAfter more than a decade roaming the Red Planet, NASA’s Opportunity rover needs to have its flash memory reformatted in order to resolve computer resets that are interfering with the rover’s science activities. “Flash-memory induced resets have increased in occurrence, preventing meaningful science until this problem can be corrected,” NASA said in an update. The resets, which number a dozen during the month of August, have been occurring with increasing frequency, prompting the rover team to make plans for reformatting the rover’s flash memory."The flash reformatting is a low-risk process, as critical sequences and flight software are stored elsewhere in other non-volatile memory on the rover," according to John Callas, project manager for NASA’s Mars Exploration Rover Project.
