When can you show these pictures and pans here too? You have to wait some time I guess.

Everyone,

What an indescrible joy it has been to work as an international team on a project we all love so dearly. A labor of love over many long nights and weekends.

The power of teamwork is exemplified by my awesome friends Marco, Doug and Bernhard !!!!

We present this to honor the outstanding achievements of the Mars Exploration Rover Team led by the brilliant Principal Investigator Steve Squyres of Cornell University as "Spirit" expanded the envelope in the quest for Science at the Summit of Husband Hill.

check this out on the Aviation Week Magazine free site and view the enlarged pdf

its time to update your wallpaper

and kudos Doug for creating this forum which brought us all together in a series of incredible incidents !!!!!

Yes, Ken, it was a beautiful cooperation, especially if you consider that was done by people that never meet phisically each other!
This brings me thinking what an incredible privilege we have to live in the computers and Internet epoch, our fathers didn't imagine this amazing possibility to capture images taken by a robot on Mars only few hours ago, elaborate them and share our results inside a virtual meeting room (this great forum), always populated by wonderful, talented and educated people!
I want to express my deep gratitude to all members, especially the ones which stimulated me from the beginning, in order to obtain ever improving results. Masters like Tman, Nico, Phil, Michael and many many others, without you this achievement wouldn't be possible, thrust me! wink.gif
Hope this is only the beginning, meanwhile I would like to post another version of Sol618 panorama, not published on AWST and very close to the original one posted in this Forum; Bernhard did a great colorization on it and I worked a lot to improve initial result... frankly speaking, I prefere this one and hope someone will choose this as PC wallpaper!

Thanks to everyone, my friends!

GregM: Thanks for adding that perspective. I, for one, wouldn't have appreciated that otherwise.

I find myself looking at that image over and over again, and wondering...How did they do that? It has quite a nice balance of the near and the far. Likewise with the colors.

I'd sure like to hear more about the difficulties encountered in its creation, and how they were overcome.

Fantastic work boys - as usual, I'm in awe of the accumulated skill of this board. It's unusual enough that talent like you have consistently shown for the enthusiasts here get wider recognition, let alone on this level. Brilliant!

Adding my congratulations.

The Front Page shows 30 visitors just now, while usually it has been around 5 - 10 at this time. I would guess the AvWeek cover has brought this forum to a much wider audience.

Well, the site doesnt actually get mentioned (at least I dont think it does) - but Nov 11th was the busiest day in the sites history.

I'm not a big fan of K.C. - but the 'big' image also made it to..

For those of you not entirely familiar with AW&ST, might I take the liberty of letting you in on a little background.


Thanks Greg, it seems they abide by their tradition wink.gif and discover the specialties on the internet as well.
