I really like that too. smile.gif I didn't read the small print but I notice that this winter looks shorter than previous ones. Is there a reason for that?

Great work, MoreInput!
I integrated your Oppy timeline with my full odometry (implementing Emily's corrections):

Thank dilo, for putting these two diagrams together. So they are now much more informative than they are alone.

I just corrected some errors (typos, length of winter) in the timeline diagram, and marked just the next solar conjunction far away on 18th April 2013.

Tomorrow, Spirit will be sitting on the surface of Mars since her landing 3000 Earth days ago. Oppy's coming along.

New update shows a dramatic drop of picture rate (only 2/sol) in the last half-month! I do not have an explaination...

FYI, the data tracking site shows an average of >20 pictures taken and >20 pictures downlinked per sol over the last 15 sols, so the problem may be elsewhere. (The exact number depends on how you define picture--I looked at total EDNs + ESFs + EFFs downlinked; and at ETHs to determine how many images were successfully acquired.)

Deimos, I confirm your figures looking at the picture counts from different cameras; however total counter in the upper portion of the official MER page gave me 166290 pictures on March,17 and 166320 pictures on March,30 and this imply only 2pic/day average! as additional info, this counter wasn't updated for several days before yesterday and, at this point, it seems there are problem with it!

That's not a great place to pull the total number of images taken. That's the number of images taken,downlinked, piped thru the raw processing pipeline and uploaded to the JPL image page.

Energy only update:

Consider that Oppy stopped driving when energy dropped below 300 Whr, almost 5 months ago...

Again, a half year is over for this incredible mission. We are 8 and a half year older since landing, and getting day for day new pictures and new views of the Mars surface. Still unbelievable. It feels just so normal to get news from Mars day by day, even if it is extraordinary we don't think about it.

Just a small update from the mission timeline. I corrected the time at Greeley Haven and added the radio science Doppler campaign.

So, Happy 3000 sols, Oppy!

On June 12th 2012, Oppy's sol 2981, the MER rovers completed the first Marathon ever roved on Mars. On that day, before Oppy's drive, total distance was 42190,36m a mere 4,64m short of the 42195m of a Marathon. She then roved another 17m to cross the boundary. For having run such a distance myself, I can tell you it's quite another achievement for our beloved friends. wheel.gif
