Good to see old pals still active LWS.
I like Curie. It follows the same logic as Oppy and it honors a great scientist. Perhaps Curry would be more traditional.
Younger generations will no doubt have an association with George in the back of their head when they hear Curiosity.

There is an interesting article on yahoo that suggests that the Curiosity (Curi) Rover caught a picture of the skycrane crash.

This is a Yahoo news article on what appears to be the skycrane crash caught on camera by the Curiosity Rover.

It looks like I really overdid the red in my attempts at colouration....

I reckon that's not far out though Winston. Smile

I like this composite of Navcam and Mastcam images put together by Emily Lakdawalla at The Planetary Society Smile

Oh well we have to be patient and wait for the software download to be completed then the fun can begin. We will start to receive some of the best pictures ever but these will all take time to relay back to Earth as the files are so big Oddy will have to take them bit by bit on each orbital pass. I suppose this will be a much slower mission in comparison to Spirit and Oppy in that they know they have 2 years minimum so it will not be dashing around so much.

My guess is some more old of the old timers will drop by once the images start rolling.

Horton,
I am having problem viewing the image in whole on my iPhone. I rarely use a PC anymore except at work.
I thinck Flickr is not yet compatible with iPhone.
Will check later on an iPad.

@hort, #195. Weird indeed. Could it be a shadow or reflection? Or maybe a droplet of some material that forms a splat in the form of a circle?

Probably not droplets, the Oppy ones don't show any lensing magnification which would be expected with convex transparent drops with index of refraction higher than the local air (can we call the Martian gas, that?).

Has there been any observable changes in the diameter of the rings?
