Mars Exploration Rover Update - September 19, 2005

OPPORTUNITY UPDATE: Erebus Bound - sol 580-585, Sept 19, 2005:
Opportunity has resumed normal operations this week. The rover is healthy and making progress towards "Erebus Crater." The rover team has been commanding Opportunity to drive every chance it gets. The last two sols this week have been remote sensing only, due to a lack of critical data.
Sol-by sol summaries:
Sols 580 and 581 (Sept. 10 and 11, 2005): The weekend included a 26.3-meter (86-foot) drive with observations before and after the drive.
Sol 582: A 30-meter (98-foot) drive this sol brought the rover to the "Erebus Highway?" an outcrop-rich area that extends south toward the crater.
Sol 583: The previous sol's drive appears to have completed successfully, however no data was received due to an issue at the Deep Space Network station where the data is received from space and transmitted to JPL.
Sol 584: Remote sensing was performed, which included as systematic foreground survey using the panoramic camera and miniature thermal emission spectrometer. The plan included commands for the rover to re-transmit the critical post-drive data to Earth, but these were not received due to a sequencing error.
Sol 585 (Sept. 15, 2005): This sol's plan included commands for remote sensing and for re-transmission of the post-drive imaging.
Total odometry as of sol 584 (Sept. 14, 2005): 5,874.32 meters or 3.65 miles.

In any case, those painful little steps in discovery mean nothing, since the pioneering spirit does not exist anymore.
Pioneers i.e. those who open the way are completely ridiculed by those who follow with greater means & material. As an example the gallant French prospector who discovered the Great Sandy Desert immense richness in Australia, by doing the whole prospecting on foot is ridicule by the very people who profit by his discoveries now. It's so easy to consider the Great Sandy Desert from the altitude of helicopter or a jet, and further the mines are just down there... so evident to find with their runways, plants & facilities !
Likewise the dangerous & lengthy exploration of the planet Mars now, will seem ridiculously evident for those coming later with technology making Mars a mere 3 hours flight time from planet Earth ( a system of such evidence that implementing it will be made within the next 5 years) & especially with the superior intelligence imparted by the True Geology giving them insight that Mars is exactly as the Earth will be one day. Or in other words what is on Mars is what is on Earth with a few millions years of drift & weathering to account for. The damned stupidity of the Universalities Hierarchy, and of their brainwashed pupils, is the main hurdle toward a clear enlightening of both Mankind and Earth History.
With kindest regards
