It looks like it might fall apart if you touched it.....and it kind of looks like a meatball

According to Scott Maxwell's Twitter site, the IDD will brush and APXS - mossbauer the site with a grind on friday. But later says their is a lively debate on getting on with moving.

If they use the limmited resource of the grind, I bet a mossbauer is likely. And with the time that would take would a large super pan or super res shot take place in light of the not so hot tau?

Also the grinder doesn't have many grinds left. If it quits could you use a turning wheel with the rover in place like they did early in the mission to partly decrust rock -without hurting the wheel or contaminating the rock with wheel stuff?

Tau seems to have been down the last few sols. A Pancam 10x1 is currently in the process of being taken over several sols, though I don't think it's a superres.

I very much doubt we would risk that. We are extra cautious when it comes to using our wheels! Though the RAT seems to be in great health anyways, limited grinds notwithstanding.

Ok, just finished splitting the "Cape York" thread. This new one starts with the approach to Chester Lake (and the Lakelands) and should be the current one 'til they finish sniffing and exploring this area. All posts related to Tisdale, Odyssey and previous sites should be posted on the other proper threads.

That is the start of the Endeavour pan. Those 5 will be joined by 10 more tomorrowsol, and hopefully more next week. All in L257 colour. smile.gif

This is strange.

Over the last couple of weeks I've had serious problems trying to get the MI's to match up with the Pancams for location images. Today I think I found out why.

One of the oddities of the way MI's are presented is that the images are inverted compared to the "normal" Pancam (and other cameras) view. No problem, as standard procedure I invert the MI's after download so that they match the orientation of the Pancam images. Today I was attempting to match the latest MI's with the latest Pancams and I saw that the MI's are now being transferred in the same "correct" orientation as the Pancam images.

Has anyone else noticed this? I need to go back and check the past few week's MI's, and check also at Hortonheardawho's Flicker site (who frequently makes MI location charts).

Remember - the MI could be oriented different way depending on where the IDD is placed. This isn't a post-production issue, so to speak.

NickF -- that's quite a tilt in your sol 2715 post. Are we already looking at hills in the distance?
