Dear fellow ATSers,
earlier today I was reading something about the Spirit rover as I was trying to find out what happend and why NASA lost comunication with it.
I didn't find anything of interest, just the following, Spirit simply stopped responding:
- More than 1,300 commands were transmitted to Spirit as part of a recovery effort;
- No communication has been received from Spirit since March 22, 2010;
- The project concluded the Spirit recovery efforts on May 25, 2011;
- 2210 days of operation on the surface of Mars;
- Total distance traveled: 4.80 miles (7730.50 meters).
Poor little thing
So, next, I decided to take a look in the pictures of Spirit's last days, so I started browsing...
To my great disbelief, you'll hardly believe what I've found...
Pay close attention to the reference points in the image!!!
PIC NO.1 - Sol 2175
PIC NO.2 - Sol 2175
PIC NO.3 - Sol 2176 THE DAY AFTER
Reference NASA images:
May I ask you a question: Was this object responsible for Spirit suddenly stop responding???
Please ATS, if you find more images regarding this event, feel free to post.
P.S. I'm sorry for my poor english, I'm still learning.
