I think this may be a sneak preview of Oppy's drive direction

You can really see how the air's gotten dustier recently in that mosaic. Compare this new frame from 2529:

with this frame from 2484, back at the conjunction stop:

Tribulation's hazier now, and the bits of Iazu in the far background are getting hard to see.

I wouldn't be shocked if we passed through there. But FWIW those three Pancam frames are labelled "Rodrigo de Escobar"; another Santa Maria crewman.

I noticed that too. I just thought that it looked like a likely direction, and it's a nice "downhill" view in 3D too... smile.gif

Crude mosaic of MI images of the surface of Ruiz's 'scab' over on its left...

Since color MI's are all the rage lately, I borrowed Stu's MI mosaic as well as his color composition of Ruiz, did a little perspective twisting and bending, and came up with this. As Stu would say, "just messing about..."

Does that mean there is an ex-nun dancing and twirling around up there?

Great stuff, Dan & Stu! smile.gif

Well, if Julie Andrews is up there singing, we mercifully would never hear it since I assume she wouldn't be taking off her helmet while doing so...

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.

I think we'd be even less likely to hear it if she took off her helmet...
