A second chip full of names is going on the craft (one benefit of the delay, I guess); anyone who missed it the first round can put their name in now: https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php?feature=6959

Yes indeed !
And especially from France when looking to the articles written by Institut de Physique du Globe (Paris-Sorbonne Paris Cité, Université Paris Diderot) in Paris : a French State public entity, managed under the authority of the French Ministry of National Education, for which we, as French people, are the taxpayers giving them a budget to support their teams and their experiments.
They owe their success to their great skills and work, of course, but also to us : their publications should have been made public at least in France.
Look to their website : the links are there ( http://www.ipgp.fr/fr/publications ) but pointing to Space Science Reviews' articles.
No chance to get them for free mad.gif mad.gif mad.gif

This inevitably jumps thread topic, but it's too bad that journals use a firewall/pay system, when their actual "market" is so small and the price for an article is extremely high. For the amateur science enthusiast, the economics make participation impossible, which is not anyone's intention.

But in this case, there is a solution. Try a Google search for the names of the authors + the subject, and you can find free preprints in many cases.

Enjoy!

In the last year or so, NASA, at least, has started to insist that at least preprints are made available. I think the UK has a similar policy.

For what it's worth, my paper just came out (Open Access) on an archive product making the Viking seismometer record easy to access (the product has been on the PDS for a few months - basically I reassembled very ugly short ASCII records of different interleaved types into a nice set of tables, and integrated them with meteorological data so you can see when the seismometer recorded data when it was windy or not, etc.) We even found evidence of a dust devil encounter in the seismic signal.
The supplemental information to the paper includes scripts in 'R' (a free package) to interrogate and display the data - using the figures in the paper as examples.

The paper is at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2017EA000306/full

Thank you very much Dr. Lorenz for having this paper published with a free access smile.gif and it is very nice indeed.
I thought that the Sol 80 event was dismissed as a seismic event : now, thanks to your nice work, it may come back as being a real one.
Thanks a lot smile.gif smile.gif smile.gif
