Jason, Alvin, and Argo are names of deep sea submersibles, what are they doing on Mars? unsure.gif Will they be continuing with this theme for the crater names?

Well, Jason was the guy that got the Golden Fleece, and his ship was named Argo.

I have no idea what Alvin has to do with them biggrin.gif , but here comes Google :

The connection is Robert Ballard, the Undersea Explorer, who also served in a submarine called Alvin, before establishing the Jason-Argo project.

Well, maybe after Alvin they will name the next two Simon and Theodore.

Notwithstanding the Chipmunks...

According to http://www.sciencenetwork.com/turner/rdt-bio.html, Al Vine, of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, is the designer and namesake of Alvin.

For what it's worth, I've been inside Alvin.

This was in 1985, when I was working as a diver on an expedition to Saipan in the Marianas, to find a Spanish galleon that had sunk in 1638. I was walking along the dock, and there it was. I sweet-talked my way aboard.

They were there to look at the weird colonies of creatures that had just been discovered around the deep-water volcanic vents, the 'smokers'. They had lots and lots of film that they had taken, and gave me an undeveloped roll!

Altogether, a very exciting afternoon.

Another view of Alvin as it was passed (looks very similar to Eagle):

I updated the "Heatshield to Vostok" map. Hopefully we'll see another long drive in the next day or two.

Outcrop material without a crater or crack? First subtle signs of the etched terrain?

Obsessed - perhaps we're seeing some ancient ejecta that are in the process of being buried or exumed.
