I wish we had these commands. Unfortunately these are not par of our set. mad.gif

Maybe I'm overly optimistic, but I want to see Opportunity roll up to Olympus Mons.


If only Spirit had still been alive and mobile, it could have gone to Apollinaris Mons..

If Mars2020 arrives at HomePlate, maybe it can drag Spirit out of the trap, recondition its battery, and send it on its way!

Somehow it got featured in the February Mars Report - so here's my version.

The JPGing on the raw image page really hurt the quality this time - I hope some of you will revisit this in a few months when that data hits the PDS!

James and others, I've been a little confused about the proper credit on MI images so I just asked Ken Herkenhoff. He said:

QUOTE
The correct credit line is NASA/JPL/Cornell/USGS because that's the way the money flows to us.


So the correct credit line for James's version colorized by Don is then NASA/JPL/Cornell/USGS/James Sorenson/Don Davis. I'm updating the versions in my image library accordingly.

No worries, it's very unclear and Ken's not bothered. And now I have to go through my website and change a whole lot of credits. I always associated "Cornell" with Pancam and Jim Bell and so thought that MI only needed USGS for Ken. But neither Ken nor Jim is a PI -- only Steve is the PI. So technically Cornell needs to be on everything that is a science instrument, and then you add any other institutions (ASU for Jim Bell for Pancam, USGS for Ken Herkenhoff for MI) depending on the instrument. (Navcam and Hazcam, being engineering instruments, are credit only to NASA / JPL)

Looks like the Photojournal Selfie Post is also a little confused, as it credits NASA/JPL-Caltech smile.gif

Just amazing Opportunity has endured this long! To another 5000 Sols

Just think, in another 4ish years, an intern working on the Opportunity team would not even have been born when she launched!

Doug's article about how to make a first selfie of somewhat arthritic 14-year-old robot, 4010 sols past warranty. You did a great job! :-)

Apologies to Emily et.al. for this taking me so long to write....but....I became a Dad for the first time just under 4 months ago, so time to get it down on paper has been a little scarce!

Hope you all enjoy it. And yeah....Ashley and I have since gone back and figured out what a 2.0 Selfie sequence might be like. We'll do it again at some point.

Great article, Doug. I'm sure it will be less than 5000 sols until your terrestrial baby takes HER own selfies. smile.gif (And congratulations!)
