I think they'll take one look at Vostok and drive right on by lol .... I still don't believe the white annulus visible from MOC images is bedrock... I think it's lighter coloured dust that's accumulated around the object.... all the craters show this when seen from orbit.

I found this previously released image of Vostok, as you can see they are looking into it and it is surrounded by a lighter coloured dust that's accumulated around the object. Well called Sunspot smile.gif



ps Vostok was Gagarin's spacecraft,

you can read the fascinating story here

Vostok was the Russian equivalent of the American Mercury program, so it was the spacecraft for Gagarin, Titov, Tereshkova, and several others.

cIclops: your post raises the question of Vostok's images true colors, and i am pretty sure the following one is more accurate tongue.gif :

Yes, driving on Sols 394,396,397, no drive for today, Sol 395 (restricted Sol).

Assuming yesterday's drive was successful (let's say about 140-160 meters), we should be sitting around the Sol 395 marker on the map right now, continuing on toward Vostok over the weekend, and be there by Monday.

Looks like a nice long drive backwards toward South-East on Sol 394 smile.gif



edit: looking back on sol 394 at a drive made on sol 393...? maybe?

Yes, exploratorium is back, but it skipped the PanCam images of the Opportunity triplet crater that were posted on the jpl site the last few days.... sad.gif

You should let them know that, if that's the case, it might be a bug with their software. (Chuckle... kind of an inside joke for me there.) laugh.gif

On second thought, I suppose it might be a bug with *my* software, if you're using it, so maybe I'll just shut up... smile.gif

No, it's not a bug in your software. The latest batch on exploratorium just doesn't include the Oppy images we've seen last week on the JPL site.
But let's not be hasty and give them some time to update before we spam them to death over this Terrible negligence... It's called patience. wink.gif

The way I read Pando's map, Oppy won't be there until Sol 397... blink.gif

Mars smile.gif One would assume about 100-150m SE of the Triplets
