Listen to C2C from last Saturday Dec 1 2012 to hear the strange story how the controversy about the sky color of Mars began: Contemporary witness Richard C. Hoagland, former science consultant for Walter Cronkite during Apollo, was reporting the July 20 1976 Viking Landing for American Way Magazine. The next morning after the landing, the crowd at JPL waiting for the first ever color picture from the Martian surface, gasped, when a powder blue sky appeared line by line on the monitors. Then an order came in directly from NASA director Jim Fletcher and technicians cranked up the red channel gain. The teenage son of Gil Levin, Principal Investigator for the life detection experiment on the Lander, then bravely changed the monitor setting back to normal.

Go to minute 33 into hour 2 of the show recording.

This story is only for remembering and not meant to offend todays JPL or NASA as everyone can see how the current images from the Curiosity Rover show a much better colorization than ever before with very natural colors! The MSL team is doing a great work with that robotic sojourner on a second possible terra.

No. The name is just a reference to a traditional game known generations ago.

Richard C. Hoagland is a joke. I am so tired of hearing him C2C. Hell I am tired of hearing George Norray.

You don't need to listen to the whole show, just those 10 minutes.
