I think you can just start to see over the crater rim at the far left of this pic. It's much more noticable if you look at the next image in the pan.

Here

Looks like we might start to get a good view soon! smile.gif

I can't wait to reach Bonneville. I bet there's some really interesting geology down there. That impact probably punched a hole right through all this basalt to the original crater floor. I suspect we'll study this crater right up until 90 sols and the end of the mission. What more could there be to find in Gusev Crater? Nothing interesting I'll tell you that.

If Occam had heard my theory, things would be very different now.

Wow! Gusev is amazing; so much less rocky than Chryse or Utopia!

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.

Well there's some hills in the distance, but it's not like Spirit will survive long enough to get there.

Juramike - seriously - a more than 5 year old dead thread resurected for a single RGB comp that we've probably all got via MMB + Slinted. What the heck were you thinking?

Not to mention how off topic it is:

Sol 056 - no
Big - no
B'n'W - no
Pan - no

People had been talking about a retrospective. Too soon?

I find it impossible to bring myself back to the feelings and expectations of that time. Unbelievably so much has happened since.

Timewarping a thread isn't a retrospective.

Well Juramike, I appreciated the effort smile.gif
Makes up for some slow days five years from now when Spirit gets stuck in a sand trap.

[Deep breath, everybody]

For something I'm working on, I wanted to find an image that captures the "Mars-ness" of the terrain.

I dug back into the early Pancam images, and tried to find a picture that has a large filter set and an acceptable horizon view for my needs. I processed it up, and figured I'd post my efforts here.

This seemed to be the best place to put it, since it was taken on Sol 55.
If it offends anyone, let me know and I can remove it.

(Am I the first person in trouble for posting a picture of Mars?)

I think that the real value of Spirit's first 90 days was that it was able to investigate typical Mars terrain. It is important to "follow the water" and investigate older rocks as Spirit has done over the last few years. However it was also important to investigate the typical younger volcanic terrain around Spirit's landing site.

What has struck me is how providential it was that Spirit landed so close to the Columbia Hills. There are so many other places in Spirit's landing elipse where Spirit would have been 10s of kilometers away from older hills.

Perhaps the relevant posts can be extracted from this thread and put in a new one, that way there isn't an issue of thread necromancy.
