    Checking this thread on regular basis!

    406, care to share what has been the most...ummm...interesting (?) things that you have experienced in the last year that you can and care to share?
    I can only imagine what kind of NDA you are tied into with but, you know, stuff that you can share to the public?
    How interesting/mundane has it been, any alien artifacts, are you up to some kind of more elaborate VR experience in the near future and whatnot?

    Such an interesting position you are holding there, basically a goddam rocket scientist.

    The floggings will continue until morale improves.

    also interested. Watch a NOVA special from 2015 last night about Hubble. Thought about Mars rover Photograph

    Funny how we let things of great importance slip our minds

    Nothing as strict as a NDA, NASA lives on publicity, so they press releases anything interesting.

    We drove onto a ridge at the base of Mt. Sharp and have been making way across. Not the most scenic on a large scale area, 360 mosaic taken with cameras on the mast a few weeks ago:

    Cracking up here as well...all this on TGR...

    So much win!

    Tinkered with some Mars VR at Steam Workshop few days ago. Even as it was quite simple as some sole individual had put that together, it was quite nice. I can only imagine what one could achieve with the imagery that NASA has... The data and the resolution has to be quite something.
    Hopefully you put up some kind of RoverVR experience in the near future? Or is all that data available to third parties atm so they could start to build up some experiences?

    Cool article in the WashPost here. Interesting how the place names are picked. Pahrump Hills and Telegraph Peak are straight out of Death Valley NP nomenclature...

    Bump.

    Just because I saw some geezer looking just like 406 in some documentary, astrophysicist and all.
    Bring some behind-the-scenes stuff to display, if you can!

    Not much going on the last few weeks, the main computer on the rover had some issues and JPL switched over to the back up. Hopefully taking new pictures soon on the back up. Selfie from June was cool, you can see the dust storm on the horizon:


    Got dusty for awhile and some not very good pictures during that time, but is now back to normal atmosphere conditions.

    This thread crossed my mind as well recently as I heard that the dust storm had died down and they were trying to re-establish contact and then had some computer issues. Looks like it's still working, so everyone needs to keep at it.

    The rover that is still working is the Curiosity rover. The Opportunity rover went dark in the dust storm, and hasnít been heard from since.

    Wow! Great to see another update and I'm happy everything is still functioning fairly well.

    And where have the last 6.5 years gone?

    Look at that fucking hipster

    These photos never stop amazing me. So cool. Thanks for sharing them.

    Itís kinda amazing how much Mars looks like a western desert landscape, even down to the dirt.
