Not the first time they've not checked in with someone before publishing their work. In my case - a new version of the Columbia Hills DTM movie was rendering at the exact moment they decided to put my older version on their website. Had they checked in first, I'd have asked them to wait a day or two and they could have had something even better.

It's a very odd practice.

Great mosaic though!!

Their source often seems to be Emily's blog so what gets posted there usually ends up being what's reposted at APOD.

Oh, I'm definitely not complaining! smile.gif

Just reminded me of the little flaws in the image my eyes are always drawn to. We could probably tweak stuff without end but have to draw the line at some point.

Great mosaic - the Cassini PDS stuff is a treasure trove for anyone who likes to process raw data into beautiful images/mosaics/color composites etc.

Yes, this is very familiar.

A rather gorgeous new calendar features a rather gorgeous image of Europa created by our very own Ted Stryk... and it was produced in cooperation with The Planetary Society too... smile.gif

Review and ordering details here...

I might have some insight. As you already know, there are two editors. When Bob picks one of my Hubble pictures to go up, I have received a nearly empty email with just a link to the APOD in the staging area. One time Jerry picked one and I didn't get an email. So both of them have different ways of doing things. That's not to say that Bob always sends emails and Jerry never sends them. That's just my experience. Anything more I could say would be conjecture, which I will do next responding to Gordan.

(Begin conjecture.) I could guess that this might explain the lack of contact. It could be that if it goes on Emily's blog it becomes a kind of public resource. If Emily posted it, APOD should also have no permission problems, and this could easily be assumed to be a final image and she probably provided any extra information that they would have otherwise requested. (End conjecture.)

That said, they won't know you have issues if you don't let them know. If you ever notice any mistakes or lack of credit or anything, do email Robert Nemiroff and Jerry Bonnell. Copy them both on any message. They usually fix text errors before the day is over. I don't know if they will update an image after it's already up unless it is factually incorrect. I have heard a few morsels here and there about the sensitivities they have to keep in mind which I won't get into publicly but I do know they care a lot about getting things right and not upsetting anyone, even though it still happens from time to time. (Jesús Maíz Apellániz has had his double last name mistaken for a middle + last name and abbreviated to J. M. Apellániz at least twice now for reruns of Pismis 24... Poor guy! I confess I find this slightly amusing.)

Tooting my own horn a bit but, there is actually another UMSF connection to the National Geographic article: I was a member of of Penny Boston's scientific expedition to the Cueva de Villa Luz sulfide cave mentioned in the text. I was in the back seat of Michael Limonick's (the author of the National Geographic article) car as they were rushing to the airport; struggling to get all the chemical sonde datafiles converted and downloaded while we bounced violently over the omnipresent Mexican speedbumps and the sonde batteries were quickly dying...

Pix of our part of the expedition can be found here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/31678681@N07/...57638939184283/

UMSF is everywhere.

I was wondering if this was news to you... I thought they may just have found the image they wanted and pulled it with the full attribution.

It wasn't news to me...I knew they were going to use it, but not when or how.

Enjoyed the NG article, and as someone who has dabbled in sulfur (in one form or another) for the last 30 years I have to say I'm decidedly jealous of making an expedition like that sad.gif

Ted's image today at APOD is nice. Apparently we are having a km / mi mixup again, though. Also, as usual, I am having a very hard time finding the original posting of the image.
