I need some input for something I'm working on.

What one thing - movie, mosaic, map, annotation, Pancam-graffiti - anything - is you favorite UMSF MER related 'thing'.

The most popular, with 21 and 22 thousand views each, are

and
http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.p...st&id=13308

What's your one (or maybe two) absolute favorite things at UMSF?

Doug

This thread: http://www.unmannedspaceflight.com/index.php?showtopic=762

Catching the first dust devil. Then the major cleaning event on Spirit! It created so much happiness. There was an image by Erwan, I think, about "Martian Car Wash" with a "happy alien" face which summed it up for me. Too bad that image isn't there anymore, but it's still a great moment in the MER journey.

Dammit, I can't find it searching for some reason, but Ant103's UMSF BBQ montage is surely worth a mention.

I'd vote for mhoward's Spirit Reprojected Drive movies, from this thread.

Second that; Tesheiner's work here has been absolutely outstanding!

Should also mention Juramike's painstaking analyses of the surface of Titan; it's a privilege to watch his mind at work exploring PhD-level hypotheses.

ditto

I'd also add Phil's polar pans and his lesson in creating them.

Ditto ditto.

Second favorite is the UMSF Barbeque picture.

Definitely need to add Gordan's ring plane crossing animations from this thread. (Note: His links seem to be down; temporarily, I hope.)

It's Astro's, not Ant's

I'll second the mention to the UMSF BBQ. Here's the link to the thread with the final version: UMSF BBQ.
And, yes, Astro0 was the one who "sweated" doing the work.

Another image that comes to mind is one from the time when Spirit was reaching Husband Hill's summit. We were eager waiting to see the other side of the hill one day or another, and suddenly it appeared. The whole horizon was visible and a nice DD too! Let me search for that image too...
... did it! Here's the thread: Sol581: Spirit Arrived! and the mosaic I'm talking about is in this post. I'm pretty sure Nico (Nix) has/had a really beautiful version too but the links are broken.

I agree with the BBQ and Tesheiner's route maps and I'll add a panorama of the El Dorado dunes made by Dilo...have to look for it...and also the view from the top of Husband Hill into the inner basin...priceless...don't know who made it... rolleyes.gif

I'm saddened by the most popular pictures sad.gif this is apparently what ' the public' finds really interesting: flippin' aliens! or do you think they would have seen it as the fun it was intended?

The route maps are some of my favorites. And I think the Hayabusa thread certainly deserves a mention!
The debunking of the standing water story and the 'man' pebble were also some good thinking in action smile.gif
