You may want to ask why this topic now ?
As I previously said, I was in Pasadena with TPS to witness Spirit landing. TPS tapped the event and broadcasted it on the Planetary radio. The file is now hidden somewhere in the database but I still have it on my computer and it make me cry every single time I listen to it smile.gif . These are very tense moments and all of us know how EDL ended up, but, anyway, if you've never listen to it, it realy worth it. You can choose between MP3 and Windows Media : http://www.planetary.org/radio/show/00000100/
Enjoy... and listen to me, I was one of the many shooting laugh.gif

Climber - that was absolutely brilliant. Tagged and saved.

I'm amazed in hindsight that no-one at JPL appeared to be listening to MGS\MOC messages about data volume and timing of the signals received by MGS. Am I right in thinking that that is Mike Caplinger and not Mike Malan showing remarkable restraint in not screaming down the line "It's on the ground and sending us data by the bucket loads you idiots!" ?

Yep. Mike C. mentioned that here once.

You never can get enough of that audio. Same with Apollo 11.

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.
