I don't know if anyone's posted this yet...but it's definitely worth a re-post.

I figured they would try something like this again. wink.gif

Master Betty: Nyah. Haha. It is EVIL, it is so EVIL. It is a bad, bad plan, which will hurt many... people... who are good. I think it's great that it's so bad.

I don't think that using HiRSE for NMO object detection would be a prudent use of this asset during its primary mission, but if we get lucky & MRO is as long-lived as MGS it surely might be a worthy objective of an extended mission. MGS gave some tantalizing hints of the impact rate on Mars, and assessing this risk/opportunity(? smile.gif ) would add lots of immediate value for future manned exporation plans as well as context data for Mars' recent geology.

OT, but for some reason, I'm reminded of the wonderful 1964 movie Robinson Caruso on Mars, and the frequent meteor impacts... rolleyes.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
