You may have noticed in the news that NASA successfully placed a rover on Mars last night. I was watching this closely because my lab built a critical component for the altimeter necessary for bringing this guy down safely. I gave a big sigh of relief while watching the event live on CNN when I heard mission control say "The altimeter has a lock!" shortly before landing.

I would you make a virtual out of it, but.....well...... did you attach a travel bug? Laughing

Did they ever hear from the one that was supposed to land Christmas Day?

No. The Europeans and Japanese both had failed missions in the past couple of weeks. The second NASA probe arrives in three weeks.

My pen froze so I couldn't sign the log, but I snapped this photo as proof that I found the cache. Laughing

Just missed being FTF. It was a long journey, but worth the trip. Coordinates were dead-on. Cache was dry and fully stocked. Took a red rock, left a balloon. TFTC.

Well - I headded out to the Mars cache today. Glad I finally found a day to do it! You know - Fall can be busy and all. My GPS wasn't working quite right, so I planned on following rickrich's footprints, but the dang solar winds seemed to have blown them away... Just a note : if anyone else is having a problem with their GPS up there, it's because you need an MPS (Mars Positioning System)...

AW-geez- that explains it all. We were sitting out on a ledge -star gazing- when we were in the BW a few days ago- we thought there were some strange movements up there- but couldn't make them out- it was GPSers- WOW thanks for solving the mystery!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
