Probably. Like I said - no big press conference means no big news.

Personally - I find that very very exciting.

Ii was going post that but edited my post when I saw there were observing requests from early last year - I thought it was something already known, but i'd missed it blink.gif

It's only gone public today. It's access, I believe, to the same tool used internally for target suggestion, more or less.

I think this is a massive announcement, almost the same scale as pushing Pathfinder images to the internet.

It represents a continuing paradigm shift. Think about it, now the public at large can suggest an imaging target for a major spacecraft. This continues the progression of more and more access. (And hopefully, more downstream support).

This opens space up to everyone.

I can't actually think of anything that would be bigger.

Interesting that it took the "People's Camera" all the way until now to implement this. rolleyes.gif

You mean again, right? Considering that we did this for years on MOC.

Not to belabour MC's point - but we were able to do this with MGS / MOC.

And they did thousands of publicly suggested images.

Oh, I agree.

This is a continuation of that, and with a more powerful camera.

But the trend to more and more back-and-forth feedback is huge. Compare this to just a few decades ago and waiting for the local newspaper to print one selected image....


(I'll also timidly add that more tools are available to the general public as well: Google Mars, HiRise images via internet, and more and more internet connections and faster access. Only until the last few years did I personally get a decent enough connection to be able to enjoy the plethora of data in the public domain.)

Darn - I'm still rooting for MPL. Someone in the HiCAVE is laughing at me right now. (I know where you live)

I hear you, brother. I want to see its final resting place and the condition it's in.

Well, I was about to request more possible MPL sites but I'm having trouble with the HiWISH form...
Can you all see the map on the right ?...

We should call this sort of technology "Space 2.0" by analogy to "Web 2.0," which meant sites like Wikipedia that worked by massive involvement of the public.

In this case, I hope "massive" ends up meaning more than just us here though. :-)

Scott Maxwell's Mars 3.0 presentation at Gnomedex 2008 seems appropriate here - this is a another good step along that road.

I started a new thread for discussions of spots that we in the UMSF community pick using the HiWish tool.
