Does that hill beyond Dodo-Goldilocks have a name? Very pretty.

The state of the work volume on sol 84 - what a mess. smile.gif

Remember Peter Smith's promise at a press briefing early on to 'lay waste' to the workspace.

Found another story on the perchlorates. Most of it old news but I at least had not seen this before:
...Finding a concentration of perchlorates would argue that liquid water had been involved. "If we find a deposit of perchlorate, one can speculate that water had melted at some point and had collected it into an accumulation," says Richard Quinn, .... But Phoenix hasn't yet found a concentrated deposit of perchlorates.

Alternatively, if Phoenix found some sort of perchlorate gradient - say it saw only a small trace of perchlorate in a sample from the surface, but it saw a larger quantity in a second sample from a few inches below the first, at the boundary between the soil and the ice - one could be fairly certain that liquid water was responsible. But Phoenix hasn't found a gradient, either....

Check out this Sol 89 image from underneath the lander. The buildup on the leg seems almost to glow in this view. Meanwhile, the other legs look like they remain free of the stuff. Any recent news/speculation about what we're seeing there?
