Finished reading it, and really enjoyed. Many thanks for this detailed description! smile.gif
A few questions:
- I suppose the beginning of a shift is conditioned to the downlink time, right?
- All this teams, meetings, peer reviews, are duplicated one for each rover? I assume yes.


Yes start of shift depends on downlink time and each rover has its own team that go through the meetings and review process.

For each planning cycle, each rover has a team with several positions: Paolo


Thanks Paolo, I found your posts v interesting. It's easy to forget just how amazing and complex all this is. A good reminder of how alert all you guys need to remain and how intricate planning and procedure has to be to make sure things are right and that there is max cross checking to ensure that there are no boo-boos! ..........Even just bumping a couple of metres. There's no "just going for a spin on Mars"!

PS - I seem to remember that Emmenthal has lots of holes in it!!!

Tesheiner: That places the 16km milestone right at the current position...

I like the ground view of your 16km marker. laugh.gif

Could someone enhance/zoom the horizon? I can see some bright pixels right there; may be the 17km mark.

Talking of miles, we must be pretty close to the 10 mile post. (Only 93m past 16km, and we did 70 odd of those tosol)

I'm reminded of this gem from Scott's blog:

This sol we had another 48 meter direct drive, the mid-drive survey and localization remote sensing, and then 47 m of
driving using auto-navigation. The total was 95.2 meters, bringing the mission total to 1830 meters. Nextersol, we
should break one Earth nautical mile, which is 1852 meters. As we drive another kilometer and change to the base of the
hills, we will continue to bring you as many arbitrary numerical achievements as we can come up with.

Remember, the more Emmenthal you have, the more holes...but the more holes...the less Emmenthal
