Here's a cropped version to fit at 3mb limit. despite a slight hiccup near the end, i don't detect any rebound of the ribbon after that, very promising!

Nice: They downlinked another 6 IDC images, I added them in for completeness LINK

Thank you very much Paul smile.gif

Not long ago, I was beginning to despair.

Seeing your beautiful animation, it is possible to regain hope.

What is "OOPS"?

Don't scare me without saying what the problem is.

Looking at the animation, I don't see any problem but maybe I'm missing something.

Iím sorry I caused some concern.

It was indeed a duplicate of my last post.

I will do penance and recite ten times and fully the charter of the forum. sad.gif

Sol 557
Looks like we had a short push of the scoop to apply pressure onto the regolith, followed by a 'free mole session', sadly what little progress the mole made appeared to be cancelled by small amounts of backing out.
I'm guessing the hull of the mole lost friction and we could be seeing small bounces. Note the grains of sand moving in the scoop which may suggest the mole was in contact with the underside of the scoop while hammering.
Here's a link to an MP4 file of the animated GIF that used 17 IDC frames LINK

More frames may be in the system

EDIT: As expected, 6 more IDC frames came down to fill in some of the gaps in the timelapse, one frame had data drop-out so I've only added the 5 full frames to the animation (now uses 22 frames).
The revised timelapse basically smooths out the action, but does not change the result LINK
EDIT 2: And more... Here's the 25 frame version: LINK

Is there motion out there? Looking at the ribbon, I see a very tiny bit of motion out, but I have no sense of whether or not slack in the ribbon is moving laterally.

It's clearly not moving down much, or maybe at all, but I can't tell if it's moving up, either.

It looks like there's a lot of possibility now to pack soil on top of the mole, press down with the arm, and resume hammering.

For me, I discern light going and coming suggestive but not very exciting.

But will I have absolution this time ? unsure.gif
