I would have loved to have seen the sky crane in action, that would have been awsome to see but at least we know it worked
Thanks again for the find!!
Be safe people
The Mars Odyssey Orbiter was in position to see the landing (albeit it was relatively low on the horizon), so maybe it tried to get an image.
However, Mars Odyssey does not have as high-resolution camera as the MRO, and it would be looking at it at an oblique angle -- PLUS (and maybe more
importantly) Odyssey was busy relaying the landing data from Curiosity back to Earth, so perhaps that would make it unable to photograph the
sky-crane. Curiosity sent all of its landing data through the Mars Odyssey as a relay.
No no no no no! Stop being all 'logical' and 'using real data about the mission' during this. It quite obviously is faked and staged to take our eyes
and our minds off of something more important going down. This was the distraction for those who didn't care about the olympics. They saw the Olympics
were fading and people slowly stopped caring and needed to ensure that everyone was distracted by something.
They had this all planned since November of 2011 I tells ya!
lol - seriously though. I am just messing around. Anyone who did any kind of simple search knew about it being planned (such as Phage above me whom
posted links) and it was a smart way of doing things. The inane theories of this being faked etc. are just too much.
...and this is coming from someone who believes the footage of us landing on the moon was faked. Seriously. So you know youre being out of sorts when
a Moon Fakery type person says its unreasonable.
