I'm so glad we have you to tell us what to say. Maybe you should join the thought police.

Anybody hear when they are going to let the rover start moving around ? It's been 5 days or so, on the site they say 4 or 5 days but that's in the mission statement so it was written a long time ago.

Maybe if your sentence would've made sense, he wouldn't had to have written it like that?

I've looked around and cannot find an answer to this question - I read six days to prep the rover for moving around. I can hardly wait myself! There is so much we (humankind) have yet to learn about the universe.

- the rover can send information to earth once a day
- only 10 minutes a day can the rover send data to orbiter
- signals take 20 minutes to travel to earth
- send signal from low gain antenne at 40 bps
- send signal from high gain antenne at 2,500 bps

I think it will take some time to do anything with it! Must take all day to receive a couple images.

Really an amazing tool - I can imagine dozens of rovers exploring all the planets of the universe (each rover with it's own features to overcome the difficulties of each planet/mission, of course).

Luckily my roomate has some 3D glasses. The little ridge on the lower left is more apparent in the 3D images. Looks like New Mexico. :) It is good to be open to shifts in perspective - we really know very little outside of our little space in the galaxy.


Cool, got a pair of 3D glasses today (the dinky paper ones they give out in theaters) and you're right :alright:

Ofcourse I can't ever let anybody see me using them :tongue:

Hi bitRake,

Apparently next Thursday they are supposed to roll off the platform, Friday if they have to turn and leave out the back way because of the airbag that didn't retract.
