Becklyn Man it's so pretty, but so barren /dev/codie just add a few palm trees and a little pond, and we're good to migrate Becklyn I wonder, does it rain on Mars? Becklyn I'd guess not since they haven't found water yet right? lol Gahum Water basically goes from solid to gas due to the lack of pressure /dev/codie there's practically no oxygen left in that athmosphere Gahum the only thing keeping water in the planet is all that sand and rock /dev/codie there IS or was some water for sure, with all that oxydization around, but pretty sure it doesn't rain Gahum Without a magnetic field, the sun's solar winds have basically broken water molecules apart and blown the gasses off into space Damo Face Holy shit, if you look down you can see some sort of robot, on Mars, wtf!? Kalli asks is anyone else waiting to see the google maps van appear in the background? /dev/codie im actually surprised that Google didn't team with the Mars Rover team to do just that /dev/codie well maybe not with a van, but using the Rover to add a Mars Google Map Becklyn do they do that with the moon??? cuz that'd be cool too lol /dev/codie of course it'd probably be partial, but imagine roaming around Mars or the moon with the Google Maps app Becklyn yeah that would be really awesome Gahum is it me, or has the most recent images from the lander looked much more like you're viewing someone's photos rather than /dev/codie Dude were far from the first pics with the lens caps on Gahum Right, that's what I mean /dev/codie It's crazy how good it looks and the new cams are just sick despite only 2 megapixels Gahum See, the full on high rez stuff is going to be AMAZING. /dev/codie Video will feel like waking on mars its gonna be amaze balls Gahum I firmly believe it will feel so much more real when they release that. hell, the descent vid from thumbnails was incredible enough /dev/codie Not many obstacles to fly indeed. And from what i got gravity is MUCH lower than on earth so your RC plane could make it to the orbit! Lol Gahum Although, the atmosphere is still pretty thin AvatarBizarre the atmosphere's non existent at the top of Mt. Everest, and that doesn't stop people climbing it ChefKarl Very cool. I like seeing the tracks on the ground from the early mobility tests. ElizaS says thanks, that is an amazing view! Gahum Avatar: uh welll.... that's not what I mean. Mari says Can't wait to see panoramas from the new rover.
