Do you folks remember this Victoria's wishlist thread? If we do get a bit closer we may get a cliff tiltorama afterall! smile.gif

About falling rocks, we haven't seen anything come off any of the cliffs so far, but if she got close enough to do some grinding, who knows? blink.gif

I am drooling at the prospect of seeing a nice clean RAT and MI of the lowest reachable layers.

I hope our skilled driver friends are back here on Earth practicing their ballet.

Agree. It's time for another UMSF BBQ!


Hmmm. Another BBQ. Yes, it has been some time.
I was hoping to do one around now, but the images I have of all of you just don't fit and wouldn't it be nice to include all the new faces since the last one over at HomePlate.

Perhaps this is something that we should discuss over at the Community Chit Chat thread.
My thought would be to wait until we have the mother-of-all-panoramas in colour first however.

What happened to yesterdays downlink? Or did they give the rover a day off?

No day off, there was a drive planned yesterday according to the tracking site. smile.gif

I was waiting impatiently for data yesterday yesterday as well. But now we are so close to the cape the Odyssey passes are going to be a lot more restricted and I can imagine a few passes may be missed. Hoping to have my socks knocked off later today. smile.gif

Looks like a "toe dip" onto the scree (if that's the right name for this stuff). Seems solid enough. How close are they planning to get?

Funny, I was just doing the same thing. I don't think I've stitched anything in over a year. But since my stitch came out more or less the same (with one additional sky image), I'll offer this instead, and thanks to Doug hosting the file: QuickTime VR movie (2.1Mb).

And I'll leave the stitching to James next time cool.gif

Dang! That is sweet, Mike. Could you please go back and do that for every other spot we've parked at on Mars? rolleyes.gif

Did it too. What a view!
If they stop at this spot (I would prefer to go up to the wall, but shadow and UHF coverage might be a problem) the pancam mosaic (360 degrees pleeeeeaaaaaaasssssseeee!!!!) will be a hell of a view.

Edit: Just finished downloading Mike's VR shot, and I must agree with Dan.
