"We must now reconsider and question all the successes scientists are so proud of. Is true progress a matter of sending spacecraft to other planets? And to do what, after all? To exploit their resources and introduce the same disorder we have created on earth? Why go and disturb the entire universe now? There is nothing wrong with wanting to explore the cosmos, but not before we have understood and resolved certain things here on earth. People have no respect; they think they are free to go anywhere without concern for the upheavals they cause. But one day they will pay dearly for this violence. As long as scientists have no other goal but to give people the means to assault nature, to dig it up and exploit it, with no consideration whatsoever for the damage they do, they have no right to be proud of the so-called progress they bring about for civilization."

Why all the fuss? What's so different about this rover compared to previous ones?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21376784


This is the rover that landed via a "Sky Crane", therefore it is obviously better at taking photos!

New Mars Rover to Raise Its Camera-Packed 'Head' Today


On Monday — the mission's first Martian day, or Sol 1 — the six-wheeled robot was slated to deploy its high-gain antenna, enabling better communications directly with Earth. The Curiosity team also planned to take a five-hour measurement with the rover's Radiation Assessment Detector, or RAD. [Gallery: Mars Rover Curiosity Landing Success]

And today, on Sol 2, Curiosity will untuck its instrument-studded head, which is officially known as the Remote Sensing Mast (RSM).

"The big thing on Sol 2 is the RSM deploy," said mission manager Mike Watkins, of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory here. The mast hosts four navigation cameras, or navcams, and these should get their first workout today as well, Watkins added.

Actually, about that first color image.....

The lens dust cover s still on and will not be removed until other tests are completed. The dust kicked up from the landing jets have clouded most of the cameras and will be removed within 2 or 3 days.

We can expect crystal clear images very soon.

Curiosity sol 1 and planned activities for the next few sols



I hardly know where to begin writing today: so much information! I'm going to have to break it into chunks and handle one at a time.

There was a press briefing this morning, featuring mission manager Mike Watkins along with MAHLI principal investigator Ken Edgett and HiRISE scientist Sarah Milkovich. After it was over, I asked Mike Watkins to explain to me what the plans are for the next few sols. I'll cover the cool HiRISE image of the landing site and the MAHLI image in separate blog entries.

By the way, a "sol" is a Martian day, about 24 hours and 40 minutes long. I'll often use "tosol," "yestersol," and (more rarely) "nextersol" (a word I learned from Scott Maxwell) to mean today, yesterday, and tomorrow in Martian days. It's important to distinguish time reckoned on Earth from time reckoned on Mars because of the different rate at which solar days elapse; "tomorrow" means the Earth day after this, August 8; "next sol" or "nextersol" means Curiosity sol 3, since it's currently sol 2 at Gale crater....

I'm just saying, we've had plenty going on at/with Mars for years now, why send another rover there? Why not to somewhere else with potential?

Why not spend the money on going back to the Moon and doing something meaningful? There are all kinds of resources there. How about colonizing it? Hell, it's many millions of miles closer, and we could actually do something there.

I just don't see how and/or who makes these decisions?

Other planets and moons are even harder to send landers to with current tech and budget restrains.
And there is still a lot to learn from Mars.

Exploitation and colonisation is not really NASA's bailiwick.
That's more for private corporations.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 21367128

Basically the White House and Congress.
NASA itself can only suggest projects. Its budget isn't a bag of money each year, it's an itemised list. Do this, do that, at these and these expenditures.

Picture doing a remote software upgrade. Now picture doing it when the machine you're upgrading is a robotic rover sitting 350 million miles away, on the surface of Mars. That's what a team of programmers and engineers at NASA are dealing with as they get ready to download a new version of the flight software on the Mars rover Curiosity, which landed safely on the Red Planet earlier this week. 'We need to take a whole series of steps to make that software active. You have to imagine that if something goes wrong with this, it could be the last time you hear from the rover,' said Steve Scandore, a senior flight software engineer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. 'It has to work,' he told Computerworld. 'You don't' want to be known as the guy doing the last activity on the rover before you lose contact.

Space IS Earth.

No more than we can afford to ignore the fact that we are living on a changing planet with a fragile biome, can we afford to ignore that this same planet is in a changing solar system about an energetic but temporary nuclear reaction.

What we study "out there" tells us just as much about what is "right here."
