Not quite a year ago, Mars was in the news. Opportunity had made it
to a new milestone – Victoria Crater. Among the issues being discussed
at the time was: will we send the rover down into this crater, from
which it would likely never return. I posted my own feelings in an
entry titled Precipice.
My feelings haven’t changed. I’m still amazed at what we’ve managed
to achieve. I still feel a bit mixed about sending this rover to it’s
eventual doom. And I still know in my heart that it’s The Right Thing
to do; it’s what we sent it there for, and there’s not going to be any
better ..opportunities.. to get this much information.
