More data.
The MER program is now over 6000 Sols and over 325.000 pictures (ok, 100k's of the sun...).
Anyway, here is another update.
2 data are not 100% sure, the date when we get 25K as well as (recently) 325K.
The rest is ok.
I remind you that Spirit stopped transmitting on sol 2210 on March 23rd 2010.


Pictures- When - Days for 25K picts - Pictures/day
25.000 30/05/2004 136 92

A question came to mind: since Curiosity landed, which rover has logged more on its odometer - MSL or Opportunity?

A quick look at a couple of dilo stat posts (miss those!) from earlier this year suggests that both rovers have averaged roughly 4km per earth year. It's interesting that the distances are similar, considering the difference in size and age of each and the contrasting terrains being covered. Amazing that Opportunity has averaged almost 4km/year for a decade!

ADMIN: Those answers are always available if you care to check. Opportunity Curiosity wink.gif

I don't expect Curiosity to ever surpass Opportunity's odometry (40 plus Km). I've inset NASA's MSL extended mission map over jmknapp's route map showing in the red box the extent of the extended mission map on jmknapp's map. I expect that Curiosity will be within that box over the next two years and not log over a total of 20 Km (from landing). After that, the going will only get slower with rougher terrain and a high density of science targets. Even if Curiosity lasts 20 years, I wonder if it will ever reach 40 Km. That's a good thing because I think the main reason will be the great amount of science that will be done without traveling very far. Opportunity's crater hopping was a much different situation. In the meantime, Opportunity keeps plugging away. smile.gif

P.S. Look what I found.

From my side there is nothing new in the second half of 2015: Oppy is still in Marathon Valley

And a little update: Again a half year is over. Oppy is still in the Marathon valley, but prepares to rove to other parts of the Endeavour crater.

And Opportunity is now over thirteen years away from the earth.

And an update again: We have reached 2017 and Oppy is going to celebrate its landing date at 24th January.

Here is the updated timeline of this mission.

It's great that you're keeping this diagram up to date. Solar conjunction for 2017 looks a bit early there, though, comparing the gaps between previous ones.

Yes, you're right, ngunn. I corrected this.

Again here the timelime for our brave rover.
Also I updated is to the first half of 2017.
