This must a be a debris field associated with one of the craters?

Anyone keeping track of the odometer? It has to be really close to Spirit by now.

Opportunity must have surpassed Spirits total odometry by now, or what? huh.gif

Amazed to see the name 'James Caird' up there - one of Shackletons whalers was called that - the man himself helped fund his famous expedition which started off in a large boat called.... Endurance smile.gif

According to latest Spirit update on the MER site:
"As of sol 435 (March 24, 2005), Spirit has driven a total of 4,197.5 meters (2.61 miles)."

The last odometry total update on Oppy was on Sol 388 when the total was 3014.77 meters (1.87 miles). I believe this was when Oppy was still at the three little craters (or crater triplets) on the way to Vostok. And based on Pando's updated map, we have traversed 1,394 meters from Vostok. That sums up to 4,408.77 meters plus the distance from the crater triplets to Vostok (which I believe was a couple of hundred meters). That brings the total to more than 4,600 meters (2.86 miles). So to sum it up, OPPY IS THE NEW DISTANCE CHAMPION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Doug, do you still have any Mars bars left? tongue.gif

Just a thought - did you do your style maps for eagle->end ?

Would be cool to put together a full travel plan for at 1.5m/pixel for the whole - ignoring the stuff inside endurance as that's just too messy tongue.gif

I started doing that after the heatshield, but yes, it would be cool to do the whole path. When I get some free time... tongue.gif smile.gif

Are mission planners intending to do any science at Viking crater or drive past? Seems strange they would stop so short of the crater to do a few sols of science. They could have reached the crater with a farily short drive that would probably have left the afternoon free to deploy the IDD - I wouldnt have thought the soil/dunes would be much different where they are now and at Viking. Perhaps they'll make a stop at Voyager Crater instead?
