I'll miss all the talk about the winds and cleaning events and jumping from lily pad to lily pad when we go from MER to MSL....
MER = the era of sail
MSL = the era of the nuclear submarine...

What about Steve S been in NEEMO right now? biggrin.gif

Spirit received a huge cleaning event while 'sheltered' between Home Plate and a nearby hill called Tsiolkovsky.

Phil

interesting since I thought the oposite! Spirit was sitting between two ridges/hills and I thought it was a Venturi effect.

While waiting on the pictures, I'm passing the time playing 'guess the energy production' until we get the new update...

I feel your pain, Phil! At least we can take some old pics, polish them up a bit, apply some transformations, and repost them, tricking that part of the brain that needs new images, if only for a moment...

Here's mhoward's navcam pan from 2965 cropped and 3x vertical stretched, to remind us that we're still perched at the edge of one whopper of a crater:

"I feel your pain, Phil! At least we can..."

Hmm, yes, that just might work!

I'm trying to follow my Gusev rim panorama with a version from the sol 2220s region where Bopolu, Miyamoto and Endeavour were all visible simultaneously.

Good news regarding Odyssey [link]

"PASADENA, Calif. -- NASA's Mars Odyssey orbiter has been taken out of a protective status called safe mode. Remaining steps toward resuming all normal spacecraft activities will probably be completed by nextweek.

Controllerswill continue characterizing the performance of the replacement wheel in coming days while assessing which other activities of the spacecraft, besides nadir pointing, can be performed reliably with reaction-wheel control of attitude.

In returning to full service, Odyssey will first resume its communication relay function for NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity, and then will resume the orbiter's own scientific observations of Mars. As a priority, activities will resume for preparing Odyssey to serve as acommunications relay for NASA Mars Science Laboratory mission. "

Just to make certain that I am not turned around - are we looking toward the red dot from the "shoreline" of CY on that sol 2989 image?
