awesome!

I'm one of the most durable and fervent advocates of space exploration, but my take is that we could do it robotically at far less cost and far greater quantity and quality of results.

That's extraordinary. Did they really actually build a 3-D model, or unroll a long picture of it, or what?

Not sure, but iirc it was a 2D image cleverly shaded to look like a 3D model.

This thread seems generic enough that I can post this here. A map I made of Lunokhod 2's route based on a Soviet era map (Courtesy Jeanna Rodionova)

The route will be corrected now we have LROC images , but it's not too bad.

That's in the "Stooke Book" isn't it? I have mine stashed away right now.

A version of it! I posted it here to follow up on a discussion in another thread about planetary rovers.

Thanks so much Phil,

I was missing Lunakhod 1 data and relied on this image to set up the figure in the other thread about planetary rovers...I'll see you there smile.gif (http://www.planetology.ru/panoramas/images/big/lunokhod1_c/lunokhod1_l_17_with_map.jpg)

Just compared your new map with the Big Stooke Book.... I see you have been improving your Russian, Phil, as well as refining the track from LRO!

There are many Surveyor panoramas further up this thread... I have just been advised that a project to scan all 85000 or so Surveyor images (from photo negatives) has been funded, and the entire dataset will be available on the web eventually. Not sure of the timeline.

Nice! Photo negatives are quite good, I'm sure we are in for some nice images.

Yes - the set I saw at LPI in Houston were not very well cared for and might have scratches, but the new work is being done at LPL in Tucson (I think) and maybe their set is better.

There is a lot of new work that could be done with these images. One thing would be to make panoramas or partial pans with different lighting conditions. Another would be full documentation of robotic arm activities, including animations, for the two missions with arms (3 and 7). I hope we will get a decent interface to provide access, and also that people will find them interesting enough to play with.
