I hope the mission managers can emulate the experience of Hayabusa (I). When things don't go precisely according to plan, then robotic exploration must rely on the human capacity to think creatively and innovate. They have a superbly sensitive instrument placed on the surface of a planet millions of miles distant, and that set of advantages is not going to not going to come along again any time soon. It will be interesting to see if they can find a way to work around the obstacle, buth literally and figuratively.

Hmm. If the acoustic response is changing between strokes without changing hammering mode/frequency, that may imply that this is indeed an isolated--and relatively small?--rock rather than a layer since the changes would presumably be caused by small movements of the rock itself.

That's obviously an optimistic interpretation of a description of data we are not privy to, but I at least see some hope here.

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Interesting that they think the possibility that it's a buried obstruction is rather low, and that they're leaning towards the idea that it don't have the leverage that friction with the sides of the borehole would allow.

Makes me more optimistic about things than I have been before. Thanks again for keeping watch on that page.
