Holy Moses! That was an incredible interview. The questions were perfect and the answers were wonderfully insightful. Possibly your best interview ever, Doug and Jim. I am still overwhelmed by the amount of new information. I think it is the first one where I felt compelled to take detailed notes.

There is too much to comment on tonight, but thanks for asking about the pancam resolution. It seems that Jim gave us quite a detailed answer to that one. I also enjoyed his mention of this time as a vacation for the overworked team. They certainly deserve a vacation. I will take issue with his comment that we have more free time to look at the data. wink.gif They are paid to analyze the data during working hours, and any free time is likely to be the same between them and us. In fact, it would appear that quite a number of us are shaving time from our day jobs to keep up with these missions. cool.gif

That was really a welcomed insight into the thoughts of the mission commanders. I have a couple of dozen other things I wanted to mention, but it is too late for me, and they belong in other threads. I don't know how you guys could have packed more information into those minutes. smile.gif
