Because the dust would have to a- make it inside of the MSL body enclosure, b- also make it inside of the processor chassis and c- somehow manage to cause this seemingly quite specific flash memory issue instead of shorting out and physically destroying the electronics, which would be a much more serious and obvious failure mode.

Spirit had flash memory issues only 8 sols after landing, and in clear conditions. They were resolved via software methods. Dust did not cause that.

Moving on...

I agree dust in the components less then zero chance of happening.

there is more then enough time to wonder what has happened to Curiosity.

I was just wondering what were the preparation that were made for Curiosity before and during the dust storm.

One is a lack of solar power. One is a flash memory problem.

Even with just publicly available information it's really quite obvious that they're unrelated.

The one is dust related, why can't the other with the memory lose not be in any way dust related?

If the static electro force is great enough to generate a magnetic field the color of the drill area would be that of atmospheric dust proportionally.

I'm thinking the red would be gamma ferrous oxide.

Static cling (as it were). It does not seem to "rain" dust.

Any way you cut it the rock is black & white. Seems this area is a mantel breach of some type. The black rock being mantel basalt.

QUOTE (atomoid @ Feb 13 2015, 06:46 PM) *
reminds me how a package of powdered sugar always ends up with assorted spheres of many sizes inside, presumably from agitation causing compression clumping in turn rounded by agitation. the spheres are similarly hardened and don't shatter by the fall on the bedrock. in this detail crosseye you can see a 'socket' where one rolled away and a 'hole' a bit below that where the pile left void somehow, perhaps a sphere sunk deeper?

Inadequate mixing of the added corn starch in the powder sugar may also contribute to particle adhesion after repeated bag openings.. wink.gif

The material has been shaken about and poured so formation of spherical accumulations is no surprise.


Well perhaps I just overlooked seeing this reaction in all the other drill dumps.
