Hmmm. Interesting that we backed up the ramp again. Was going forward hazardous, or have we just switched to the southbound Victoria Express? unsure.gif

Definitely going to South on Sol760.
It seems Oppy avoided to go into this dangerous dune at the last moment, or it was intentional? huh.gif

Doesn't look they are, actually: http://qt.exploratorium.edu/mars/opportuni...KEP1215L0M1.JPG

You might want to straighten out that route a little, Alan.

It looks like the usual after-drive turn in place for better UHF communication.

It's interesting that your drive path stops at the edge of the victoria ejecta blanket. I wonder how traversible it is?

Interesting hopscotch route, Alan. It looks a pretty circuitous path, but given that the operational constraint should be avoiding deep, loose ripples, staying on the bedrock windows is a must. It looks like we will be dancing on the rims of paleocraters.

Keep on rocking Oppy - good to see the journey to Victoria has started. I look forward to seeing that huge crater....is that going to be Oppy's last stop?

Who knows? Everyone is looking at Victoria as the last stop but there might be just enough gas in the tank to keep on exploring (there's a huge crater towards the southeast but it's at least 10 miles away). With the problems both rovers are experiencing I will be more than satisfied if Oppy does make it to Victoria. We can all breath a sigh of relief then..I know I will.

I'd be satisfied if Victoria has to be Oppy's last port of call.

Agreed....seeing as Spirit's right front wheel may be DOA (?) and the rovers are way past their designed lifetime.

Victoria Crater may be the finish to the whole MER project...then look toward Phoenix and the MSL. But the rovers may have more surprises left. Too bad Phoenix isn't a rover, but it will be very exciting in its own way.

Damn shame if the wheel is actually out of action for good but we can hope that it is an inconvenience rather than a death sentence for Spirit.

While I like the monster acronym, I think "KIA" describes the wheel failure nicely, with overtones of intrepid heroism.

All this talk of Opportunity's last resting place has made me depressed... very depressed... I think I'll go and stick my head in a bucket of water.
