Issue posting new topics is now fixed!

It has just come to my attention that new topics have not been successfully accepted recently. I believe I have figured out the issue and have posted ( and then deleted ) several test topics.

If issues like this -- or any other issue arises -- please do not hesitate to send me an email to let me know. Usually I can fix an issue very quickly, but I am not monitoring the forums so I won't see any issue reported in topic or replies. You can send email to my first name @ first name last name dot com.

Mount Sharp Extended mission 1a

The main thread seems to be taking a day or more before posts appear.

This is just a trial to see if a new thread will refresh more quickly.

Below is a repeat of the image that shows what might be veins growing on Curi's deck in a relatively thick matrix of dust.

Mauree / John radogno and others please post something here to test if posting here is more efficient.

Posting Problems

There seems to be problems posting After testing I found it works when GATEWAY ERROR comes up and I go to previous page and reload and then go to the next previous page and reload again. That's how aI got my last posts to work after several false attempts.

Posting Problems

Posting seems to be getting more difficult. I have tested this. It seems to work if when GATEWAY ERREOR shows up, I go back to previous page and reload.

Polar Ice Curve

Anyone has any information about the polar ice on Mars. A curve of retreat or advancing glaciers as the years would be perfect (2000 to 2015). If impossible, anyone knows if the glaciers continue to shrink on Mars.
Thanks!

Shoes that make you feel like you’re walking on moon

Hey guys we just launched a kickstarter campaign for a shoe that's like absolutely nothing else out there. 20:17 MoonWalker are boots that are designed to redefy gravity and give you experience of what it feels like to talk on the moon. The boots are extremely stylish and use unique N45 magnets that generate a powerful repellent force as you walk, with enhanced DuPont Tyvek® (same material NASA uses on their space station modules) to make them just about the most comfortable boots you will ever wear! Please check them out. This has been in the making for quite some time and we would love to hear your feedback on the product -https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/20-17-moonwalker-the-boots-that-redefy-gravity--5#/
