It continues to amaze me that Endeavour is almost the size of Oppy's journey thus far! blink.gif

As noted previously I have been attempting to coin a new unit of measure for the size of Endeavour; "The San Fernando Valley-sized crater" named after the region of Los Angeles that many JPL staff probably commute to and from. I think the rule is that it needs to appear in a press release or a news story for a unit of measure to achieve official UMSF sanctioned acceptance. Still hoping, fingers crossed.

I hope you are not going to imply that Oppy is now a "Valley Girl". rolleyes.gif

On the road again
Goin' places that I've never been.
Seein' things that I may never see again
And I can't wait to get on the road again.

Imaginary HiRISE view of Oppy's departure, based on Tesh's .kml file. Rover scale is correct.
