“Spirit” Cover on Aviation Week and Space Technology Magazine: 14 November 2005

Rocky Martian High: Spirit Takes the Summit

“Spirit” at the Summit of Husband Hill appears as the Cover image for the 14 November 2005 issue of Aviation Week and Space Technology Magazine. The highly detailed 6 page cover package, titled "Rocky Martian High", describes the dramatic flight operations of the JPL/Cornell team as Spirit completed work on a
Martian mountaintop: see www.aviationweek.com. The cover photo of Spirit and 2 additional pictures inside (full widescreen view and hazcam of Hillary rock outcrop), were derived by an international team of Mars enthusiasts indicating how outside analysts can use the raw imagery data from the rovers available to everyone.

Hi all, this is a little explaination about the AWST cover for the 14 Nov 2005 issue.
Attached Image
reprinted with permission of Aviation Week
The image is the result of patient, coordinated work from Doug (djellison), Bernhard (Nirgal), Ken (mars loon) and myself.
First inspiration was from the "autocelebration" panorama, a stitch posted by me in this Forum and then colorized by Bernhard.
The original picture is based on 9 NavCam images taken on Sol618, close to the rock outcrop nicknamed "Hillary" at the summit of Husband Hill.
Assembly was initially done with Autostitch and captured the attention of many people due also to the many "hardware" details visible in the foreground.
The portion you are seeng here is only a small part of the complete panorama, re-created by Doug (as he will explain in another post).

Unfortunately, I dont have a the words to express the joy of the past few weeks waiting for this - but it's been awesome, particularly with Ken, Bernhard and Marco - all working as a team

It's the 'cheekiest' Navcam mosaic I've seen done - using imagery from Left and Right cameras to 'patch up' where the perspective caused the LGA to 'rip' half way down, but the end result is something we're all proud of.

Cool isnt it smile.gif

Yeah ! it has been truely an example of what the concerted internatioanl effort of
us forum members can achieve ;-)

smile.gif biggrin.gif cool.gif wink.gif

Following is another image (exclusively colorized for the Aviation Week's
story on the Hillary campaign ...



... So if anyone wondered why I havn't posted that much recently,...
I was just too busy with the Aviation Week Project wink.gif

Fortunately, as a "spin-off" result of this project there are several other images,
(also made for the Aviation Week but not chosen for the final article because of space limitations)
Among them a complement "celebration pan" of Opportunity at Erebus
and other panoramas and colorizations that Marco and I will publish here
in future forum postings ...

Wonderful. It's fantastic that "amateurs" have made to to the cover of a national publication. That cover image has been my Windows wallpaper for several weeks.

Hopefully you all did it for $$ and not "photo credit"; freebies set a bad precedent for the imaging community.

That's really cheeky biggrin.gif Never done so far. I guess it was also a compromise between horizon and Spirit's left and right solar panels (because of warped shape).

When can you show these pictures and pans here too? You have to wait some time I guess.

Yes, yes, congratulations all around! A pat on the shoulder, firm handshake and a round of drinks (if I could)!!

That cover image is a real teeezer wink.gif When can we see more? I don't think any of the bookstores here carry Aviation Week.
