Regarding the final position of Sojourner. The rover was designed to circle the lander if communications were broken with the lander.


No - that's what I thought, but actually - it was due to go back to the lander, but at the same time it had a keep-out zone at the lander. It would have kept trying to get closer, whilst nudging the keepout zone...and probably turned right and circled the lander not by design, simply as a symptom of two fighting commands..get close and keep out.

However - eventually, the rovers knowledge of its own location would drift and it could have gone basically anywhere.

The lander had no commands to send to the rover, and I think the lack of communication from the lander was probably a lander failure, not just a comms failure. But to be honest, who knows. Personally, I give the rover a 50% chance of still being at Chimp, a 25% chance of being near the rear rover egress aid, and a 25% chance of having gone rogue and gone crazy smile.gif

Anyone want to start a UMSF pool on this? We could slice up the landing site into grids and take predictions.

Twin peaks is suprisingly a bit "hmm - where'd all those features go?"

MSSS had the MPF located accurately in their January 2000 captioned release. Viking 1 is about 50 meters southwest of the actual location.

And looking at your post here I see that you were EXACTLY right. Well done Tim. smile.gif

Has anybody downloaded that full res .jp2 image of Pathfinder site?
Before this (really unnecessary) site update at least see how big is that file...now for some reason that information is not available... sad.gif
Could somebody please post a crop of those "twin peaks" in full resolution?

Why don't the solar panels show up at all? Too much dust?

For Twin Peaks see Doug's post above (39)
