Working Solo At Mars

Next month, for most of the month, the Sun will be between Earth and Mars, blocking radio communications between the two worlds.  That means NASA's rovers and orbiters will be on their own for a while.

They won't simply shut down, however.  NASA is sending a month's worth of commands to keep them busy.  The rovers will not move during the period, but they will still be doing science.
