As long as we are compiling errors on that labelled image, it should be pointed out that an error I have seen elsewhere is repeated here. "d'Unville" should be spelled "d'Urville". The name is from Dumont d'Urville a French explorer who charted the Adelie coast of Antarctica around 1840. There is now a French research station by that name on the Adelie coast. I have seen that misspelling in a number of locations.

I just hope they don't follow the same path used to get from the winter haven to Tyrone now on the way back to Home Plate, otherwise this map will become a real mess. wacko.gif


Well Tesheiner, from the look of today's images, the rover drivers are really trying to make their path un-mappably overlaping. rolleyes.gif

If it comes to it I guess you could try just putting the most recent path in a different colour and 'on top' of the previous drives. Might make it easier to distinguish when\if they get all jumbled.

I'm just delighted to have them! Thanks again by the way.

When I said "I hope ...", I was 99% sure the paths would overlap. I decided to use a smaller font for the sol numbers and here is the result.

That map illustrates how badly Spirit's broken wheel has affected mobility. I don't think the rover will ever leave the immediate vicinity of homeplate.

of course, there's the tiny issue of 6 months sat on a slope to survive winter that might, just maybe, be a contributing factor to not much mobility recently.

I'm talking about the tiny bumps in movement backwards and forwards.

So am I.

Sure- they're not going to be doing 50m+ drives or climbing >8 degree slopes - but the wheel issue has not been the primary factor in the small ammount of driving done in the last 12 months.

I'm pretty sure we will see longer moves, up to 15 meters perhaps.
Have a look to the drives when Spirit left Tyrone rushing towards the winter haven; 10meters on sol 803, for instance.
IMO, the problem is when the rover has to make a turn; that's a tricky manouver to do with a broken wheel and probably the result is not quite accurate. That's the case for the last move, a sort of 120 turn.

We haven't seen what Spirit can do when it wants to cover a large
distance quickly. Right now they are still interested in local targets.

Last move, during sol 1116, was about 8 meters and I'm pretty sure they could do even more when required.

Updated route map (sol 1116).
