No doubt about it the Lunokhods are a significant outlier in the history of unmanned spaceflight. Your post prompts a question for posters here. Let's say Opportunity does cover another 10 kilometres. Is anyone willing to put a pin on the map suggesting its likely location?

Not the right place for such a discussion ( I'll ban myself later ) - but basically, Cape York / Tribulation - spend a km or 2 there, then we'd end up 2km south following the rim, I'd guess.

You may note that we're moving to another picture.

I notice that the grid in the latest map segment has shifted east and no longer matches the grid pattern of the previous segments. For example, the 27km point is now on the eastern (right-hand) side of its nearest longitude grid line rather than on the western (left-hand) side of that same line.

Is that a consequence of moving to the new picture? (Or has there been an adjustment to the positions of the endpoints of the last few drives?)

Endpoints moved - changing from estimates to observed locations as the pictures became available. The grid is pure geometry - that's what you line up with the previous view.

That makes around 500m / week --> only 3 months to reach Cape York.

I had made a comment in the other thread several sols ago that this dark terrain that Opportunity was crossing was fraught with fractures, and that it appeared to be a dangerous place to drive. I am relieved to see that our girl skipped right through it with nary a care.

In retrospect, most of the cracks were apparently filled with sediment and not of concern. Some of the scariest ruts were niftily avoided by Oppy's expert drivers, as we have all come to expect.

I see more fractured terrain ahead.
