Some statistics as on jan 31st 2008
Total Pictures : 207.000
Total Sols : 2880 (16 times more than scheduled)
Pics/Sol/Rover : 72
Total distance : 19200 m (~12 Miles) (16 times more than scheduled)
meter/Sol/Rover : 6.6
Cost/sol (Assuming 900 millions USD) : 315.000 USD

Oppy's now over 100.000 pictures
Just think of this : 72 pictures/Sol/Rover represent 2 old roll films per sol/rover
I can't imagine the size of the container (not talking about processing) the rovers would have to have carryied if Digital camera would'nt exit yet ! pancam.gif

Another update for our poor old friends on Mars...

I added an inset odometry plot in order to show the tiny progress in last year!
About pictures, due to energy problems the contribution from Spirit is very small (only 18 pics/sol in last 2 months!).

No major odometry changes, for the moments... so I report only updated pics plot:

Incidentally, the cumulative pic quote resemble very much to a parabola, stalling one year from now... let's hope that Spirit awakening and, especially, new Oppy journey to EC will change this trend! rolleyes.gif

Here is the updated .xls file I use to follow Rovers progress.
I've got some reliable infos regarding restricted sols so, I added a column for Oppy to show where they'll be. Please don't take this for granted since it depends on when the downlinks happens and it'll have to be ajusted as we go. Anyway, it should work at least for the coming month or so.

Attached File  Rovers_follow_up.xls ( 556.5K ) Number of downloads: 312


Enjoy

Thanks Climber, interesting file.
I would like to integrate these data with my datasheet.
In the meantime, this is my updated odometry for Opportunity wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif... I hope to see a strong increase of such statistics in next week! rolleyes.gif

Oppy get full lead now:

+ Oppy overtook Spirit for total distance on March 19 th 2006 : 6836m vs 6807m
+ Oppy overtook Spirit for total number of pictures on October 8 th 2008 : 110864 vs 110840


Edited: for a 900M$ basis, cost per second will drop down 3$ on december 2nd.
I guess we're actually over 900M$. Doug, any better estimate for, say, 31 december 2008?

Last one last 2 weeks total but I'll say it depends on the actual geometry, i.e. how close to the sun Mars will be seen from the Earth. Anyway, I don't expect more than 2 weeks really.
