Pasadena, California: NASA's Opportunity rover is soaking in the view from its perch atop a Martian hill as engineers continue to fix a problem with its computer memory.

The aging rover beamed new images to Earth on Wednesday, confirming it reached the hill informally called Cape Tribulation.Opportunity landed on Mars more than a decade ago and has recently suffered bouts of amnesia stemming from an issue with its flash memory. The six-wheel rover has been able to drive despite the occasional memory lapse.

Opportunity will spend several days at the summit snapping pictures that engineers will stitch into a color panorama.Project manager John Callas says the rover will try to find interesting rocks to study. If there are none to be found, it will keep driving.
