Everyone likes suprises right....

At very short notice ( <36hrs ) - Steve and I managed to meet up in Milton Keynes yesterday evening and do another Q'n'A - this time an hour long talking about everything that's gone on in the last 12 months or so since the first Q'n'A last September.

http://www.rlproject.com/audio/ss_qna_071106.mp3
Approx 14 Meg, 1 hour 48 seconds long.

Sorry I didn't have time to do a call for questions - but with the time between knowing it was on and doing it being so short there just wasn't the time to call for them, plough through them and then pick them...I think I got through all the good stuff though. I tried to see any left over stuff mentioned here, things that might have been asked for a Pancam update but better suited to Steve rather than Jim - and I was able to ask my admin team if they could think of any as well ( thanks guys ).

This time it was on the lounge area on a hotel landing....no ducks or wind noise - but occasional passers by heading to and from their hotel rooms - I hope the quality's good enough (I think it is)

If someone wants to put down time markers for transcription and people do the same as last time, I'd be happy to put together another PDF like last time.

Enjoy!

Doug

A very big thanks to you and Steve for doing this. It is so good to hear all the detailed stuff from the mission.

Famous for its roundabouts and concrete cows if I recall....

Primary reason was giving a keynote lecture at the London Geological Society....which then resulted in a "while you're in the UK, can you come and do something at the OU"...which is in MK, 56 miles from ME smile.gif

That's our Steve! biggrin.gif

Great work Doug, really enjoyed it, sounded like you both were telling a tale about all the past sols...
And you can actually "see" Steve "possessed" by Discovery's spirit we he talks about the Everest and Victoria panorama...That was my favourite part...If you have followed that not so scientific line only for a bit more it would have been perfect... smile.gif

Sound was excellent. Good mic-ing on SS but you're sounding like you're in a can or something Doug. Very good of him to make himself available for that chat. It's likely this good bedside manner that has provided the impetus to make MER such an interactive treat. Can Steve be seconded to ESA for a couple of months? Ask him next time!

Much better than the other way around. By design, I'm sure. If there's only one mic, Doug knows which way to point it!

My favorite part: Going back to home plate to look for more bombs... and that strange silica stone, (fuzzy something).

That is a really enjoyable interview. I found myself cheering at several parts of it, as you discussed various parts of the ongoing adventure. Great job, Doug.

Thanks Doug! This Q'n'A was the best yet!
Can somebody post images of those two mentioned rocks (Gong-Gong and Fuzzy Smith)...I'm having trouble googling them up... sad.gif
