Looks like its over. Many people have been posting here for more than a decade. Some who were here from the beginning are no longer with us. As a scientist I found it doubtful that any part of us continues to exist in some form after we are gone, but if it does, is it not so for the rovers? And if that can be, perhaps there is some metaphysical corner of existence where they all live on together.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

I suspect there is much more for us to discuss the next few years. INSIGHT, faster transmission for the next orbiter, 2020, and more, will while not solving riddles left in passage at least give us basic detailed information.
A lander similar to INSIGHT near fields of small cones, such as Cydonia region might be a valuable future mission for a fairly stable heat source to measure and evaluate for recent geologic activity possibly.

OK, Mars was a very small planet. We made an investment and a failure over time does not count against us for that reason.
We haven't failed as yet in the rovers and landers, technology testing, and perfecting a technique of sending small fleets of future designs.
This is the current state of efforts to find extreme life forms, but it does sit in our own yard.

Imagine all the new technology on the way for future rovers, landers, and orbiters. A quiet conversation along the way is good for all.

Certainly the process of Mars research will continue, with the passing of our persons.


In the above link no mention of the clear 'removal' process which caused the evacuation of alternating layers in the assembled terrain at Gale crater shown by Curiosity.

Much needs to be adjusted in new research which can only be done as disparate groups such as this blog.

Looks like NASA has called id. RIP dear friends all.
