"The Martian Way" KML file users may come upon Google's announcement of a new version of GEarth. Released today (April 18) this version, is browser based only, and can be found at http://earth.google.com/web

Regarding the suitability of this new version for viewing Curiosity's path KML file, I'd like to caution that, at this time, it is not suitable. In fact, the new version does not replace the desktop standard and pro versions. For instance, it does not have the Moon/Mars/Sky DBs, nor does it fully support the KML language. For a comparison of the new and old versions see https://www.gearthblog.com/blog/archives/20...ilable-now.html

Thanks, Nogal.

Here is an update to sol 1672. I'm looking forward to getting up to Vera Rubin Ridge, hopefully fairly quickly.

A short drive on sol 1673 to look at the bright linear outcrop.

This is one of those occasions where Hazcams alone give a very clear location. A 20 m drive south to the next bit of bright outcrop.

Quite a respectable drive today, about 40 m (path only guessed so far).
