right. nice to see some good follow-up work done on RSL that was imho too readily conflated with actual liquid instead of fluid behavior.
and the rover-killer dust storm provided the perfect Opportunity for such work to be done.. ;p
gotta love that last sentence: "Standard LPSC conclusion: More research is needed."

This paper is specifically about dust infiltration into the MER MiniTes and warm electronics box. It makes me wonder if dust infiltration from the intense storm might have had something to do with the loss of the rover.
