V&V are also significant in that they are roughly at the half-way mark between Endevour and Victoria. I'm amazed that we're not getting a nicer view of the much larger crater by now. There must be a dip into the etched terrain before the land rises on the flanks of Victoria.

So where is this esteemed Opportunity Route Map anyway, im lost in meridianni again, i found an old map but if Doug or someone has a static url with the map containing ongoing updates, or if it could be pinned to the start of this thread with the continually updated image, that would be terrific!

There's no such thing - JPL doesnt see fit to publish anything like that - Alan linked to his latest guestimate a few posts ago

Essentially - just north of the twin small craters at the edge of the etched terrain

WOW.......thats a quarter of a KM.........I wonder if they ever anticiapted making drives of that distance when planning the mission? If they were 220m from Viking and Voyager at the end of sol 413 they could be even closer as of now, the end of the sol 414 drive.

There are no pancam images from the latest drive so I presume today will be a no drive day. Also.....I wonder why they didnt name tose two craters Viking 1 and Viking 2? tongue.gif

I remember rover drivers saying early in the mission that they had an ambition to break 100m at some point. biggrin.gif

Perhaps they have enough information with Navcam?

When spirit was driving to West Spur it took pancam image forward and backward after each drive. After Spirit left West Spur it only took navcam images aftrer each drive. I think the pancam images are only needed if long drives (100+ meters) are planned. Opportunity may be less than 100 meters from Viking so they wouldn't be necessary.

I guess they weren't planning on the plains being quite this flat and free of debris. Or that the dust situation would be so good for so long.
