Must. not. blog. mars. must. not. surf. web.
Today's Press Briefing by Asa and the AP story based on same. (long story short: Spirit flash memory is being cleared, some, will continue working the problem; trying to mix some science work with fixing flash problems [saw reports from late yesterday that full recovery is expected on spirit, woo hoo!] Mossbauer data collected from Spirit is being analyzed; team has smiles. Opportunity egresses off late tonight Friday night/Sat night/Sun morning earth time)
Xeni Jardin interviews Glenn Reeves, MER Flight Software Architect; they talk about Spirit's data and memory problems.
Oh. and if you have red blue glasses, you must MUST MUST!! go to this site: Thom Bone's Mars Site. [via Adot's Notblog*] The red/blue glasses I snagged at a JPL open house last year have served me well, and these images are incredible. (JPL factoid: Doc M says the on-lab store can't keep red/blue 3D glasses in stock; they sell out within hours of receiving a new shipment.)
Translating QTVR into meaning: Got this response from Dave Smith to a post extolling a QTVR of Spirit and Lander:
Thanks, Susan. My daughter loved the QTVRs. Now Mars means something.I love it when those lightbulbs switch on in the brain. Hooray!
(taking a deep breath) must. yank. out. ethernet. plug. must. not. surf. web. must. not. post. any. more. today. Must. work. on. that. other. thing. (which requires a net connection to do. damn.)
