This is a normal post She’s also commenting on the velocity of a remote craft relative to the Martian surface and not her own
So the use of “our” as in “our current velocity” is a bit misleading.

But the English language hasn’t got any more succinct way to express the concept of a group distributed across time and space, so I’ll let that pass.

This is a normal post "our" denotes ownership, with the object often omitted by ellipsis, as it would be tedious to say "our spacecraft's velocity"
so it's only misleading to those who aren't smart enough to realise those in the control room are the owners of the rover.
