I think the similar instrument on Curiosity was slightly damaged by flying debris during landing.


I believe it was non operational due to the damage.

Only one of the two wind sensors was damaged; not the entire instrument. Still, glad to see it deployed!

If that is a full 360 degrees in 31 minutes, then we should be able to correlate timestamps with directions, and then with objects on the map. What is the direction to the flat-topped mesa with the layering seen at 22:44?

You might want to compare the video with posts 340 or 397 in this thread to estimate directions.

Gorgeous and incredibly detailed. Nice to see them all stacked like this. Can't get over the amount of sand/dust. It looks like the original delta was buried almost.

I know we'll find out sooner or later, but I'm incredibly curious about and uncertain about how they will pick an initial route when targets of interest are in so many different directions and choices made in one direction will disfavor other objectives in other directions ever being visited. If the plan is for the first, say 5km, headed ultimately west, to explore the southern (from our current perspective, left) side of the delta, it's going to be sad to miss out on a closer look of what is, to begin with, a more interesting-looking northern (right) side. Even a close pass by the outlier will be a bit off the path of some of the interesting things in the middle of the delta. To some extent, it's sure that the path will meander a bit to visit various sequences of objectives rather than head straight to the nth one, but all of these tradeoffs feel like they could be excruciating ones to make and leave us with a chance that the most interesting stuff was somewhere else.

This is what they sometimes call "a good problem to have" – too many interesting things to explore nearby instead of too few!

Re: 'ever' ... the fact that sample return might send another rover to this vicinity means things in the rearview hazcams have a nonzero chance of getting a closer look. Albeit small. This rover can be 'perseverance' and that one can be 'hindsight.'

The fetch rover's priority will be finding and collecting the deposited samples as fast as possible, so even less of a chance for wanderlust than Perseverance has (and presumably with nothing but engineer cameras to examine anything closely). Maybe once the MAV launches, something neat can be done with it....
