And they have galls to challenge my judgement about Mars!
Actually, there was a microphone on Mars Polar Lander. It's not like you would hear anything but blowing wind, anyways.
I bet all the motors on the rover would sound neat. And they can use the Mini-TES as a termometer.
Microphone is vital I think, one can heard all noise from mechanical parts (mostly for diagnosis) and the sounds from soil, crusts, slabs, rock, etc, when rovers run over them.
It would be very easy to take color images from MI if some red, green, white and blue LED lamps were used, and images would no\t suffewr from instrument shadows.
What a great idea jamdix!
