Got a question, where can I post about a very large Google Earth overlay set I made of the planets?

Hmm. First off, wow, and good question, thanks for asking! smile.gif Sounds like it may be an extremely useful resource.

I think a new topic in "Image Processing Techniques" would be the best fit since it's obviously not planet nor mission specific, plus it sounds as if it could be used in many ways for other imaging/cartography applications by others.

Thanks! I added it there. Sorry if I spam posted the individual planets. I had to since the overlay was too big to post in one post and I plan to update it in the future (which would make it's size increase even more). The only workaround was to divide the overlay set and upload each individual piece with the Moon, Venus, and Mars being subdivided to allow for future updates).

I hope you all find it useful (even if forum attachment size limits make it a bit of a chore to download the entirety of)

Hi Nick,
I guess we’ll have a jump in connexions soon with Perseverance landing.
I was wondering if you could provide some general stats as you used to do some years ago. I can see that current topic of Curiosity hit the 200k views but I’ve no idea of general behavior.
Thanks
Climber

On the subject of forum guests, I was amused to see this just now:

Hey! smile.gif

Climber, I don't have any stats--that was something Doug did, and frankly I just ain't got them mad skillz--but the views on any given topic or thread are cumulative so they don't reflect specific spikes. One thing that DOES happen on landing days (unsurprisingly) is that the number of users on really hits the roof. I believe that we went well over 1000 on Curiosity's landing day & even a bit higher when InSight touched down. The Forum generally attracts a wave of new members afterwards as well, one reason being that we've been called out on at least two occasions that I can recall at JPL post-landing press conferences.

Tom, yeah, that's fairly normal but it also can change minute by minute. From what I've seen a large fraction of the 'guests' are apparently automated, likely web crawlers doing scans for search engines. There are of course some actual people as well, but probably not the majority. That said, members pop on and off 24/7/365 from all over the world. There really hasn't been a fixed activity nadir time that I can discern, but it does quiet down a bit during late evening hours in Europe and North America.

After Perseverance's successful landing, and has the mission is to seek evidence of past life, how are we going to navigate this topic around rule 1.3?

There's a post by Bjorn in the Future Venus Missions thread that would be a good precedent, albeit about the Venusian phosphine paper and implications: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&p=248107

Hey. This has been under discussion for quite some time and we'll make a decision soon. Obviously we have a few months (at least) until there may be a conflict.

Right now, 1.3 remains in effect.

Indeed it does, and I'll get you for that, Steve. laugh.gif

Hopefully there can be maintained a balance with Perseverance discussion similar to what we see in this article. Could be some effort to moderate though.
