"My battery is low and it's dark." B & # 39; This is the idea that the last message was sent back to mission rulers on Earth. Mars Exploration Rover CothromNext Post Is this what she said? "
Jacob Margolis, a science reporter by KPCC, tweeted a rewritten a version of what John Callas, the project's project manager, said Opportunities The last updated the rover returned on June 10.
Clearly, the robotic geologist, who was struggling at Mars & # 39; Meridiani Planum in 2004, "to speak" as people who do. However, the public can not break the code lines, the readings and the blood dimensions Cothrom was re-sent to NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California. The public would need that information to be extracted to them in a way that they could understand.
They probably do not know when Cothrom she returned to the Earth, that these burns had to be discharged into one of the spaceships that went to Mars (either 2001 Mars Odyssey no Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft) and then to Earth through the Deep Space network.
Mission planners for the Mars Exploration Rover NASA program estimated that each of the rovers would last for three months. They were very much impressing their consistency. Spirit It was active, either scratched or as a scientific platform on Mars for about six years. Cothrom? He completely covered his dust planet to finish his mission after 15 years of service.
"Cothrom it was a bit like a family member and the last message & # 39; Sorry, but I knew he had a big life, "said Carleton Bailie, a photographer who had the gift cover for Boeing SpaceFlight Insider (Bailie gives her images SpaceFlight Insider).
NASA knew that worries had been a problem for the powerful rover of the sun. After the group visited her – they hardly tried to go to her. urging her but they had to admit she was away. The official news was made on 12 February, 2019.
This storm is a & # 39; real contract (Martian). A first indication of what was < Starting at the end of May 2018. By June the storm had been in & # 39; Mars cover (and did not grow until mid-September). Cothrom He was a ship and gave one hell of a storm to take him out. The storm could be the worst NASA saw since its initially started their group in 1971 when Mariner 9 was in an orbit over Mars.
"Once the three years of Mars (about 5 and a half of Earth) are usually normal, normal storm conditions in the dust storm around it; planet, and we usually call the global dust storms to its difference, "said Michael Mac a ' Smith, planetary expert at NASA's Space Flight Flight Center.
It was not a powerful wind. threatening the rover as if Martian wind came out at about 60 miles (97km) per hour. It was the dust; there. With covered sun panels, Cothrom Include low power error mode. In this mode the subversions rover, except for their mission clock, were turned off. Opportunities a cluster target was designed to wake up the computer to determine its power levels. At this time, stopping this and working Cothrom he did not wake up at all
"To be honest, I was amazed – and what I would like – with all the attention given to him Opportunities after we have lost her communication. There were many people that I did not think was there; go into space, or spell news, and # 39; talks about how difficult it was that this lonely rover had been working on Mars for 15 years and then he went quietly, "Jay Gallentine, author Ambassadors from Earth to tell SpaceFlight InsiderSouth Westerly
The data that was made up of the last message Cothrom which was reverted to the Earth regularly updated on scheduled status. It included, among other things, two measuring equipment – its battery power was & # 39; Gutted due to the vast majority of dust in the air and that it had low light on its solar panels. In other words, his battery was low and it was dark.
Margolis was right.
While she was ten years old and her; Gathering information, which was covered in two Martians, the rover got caught after that some famous people be sorrySouth Westerly
So long as it is Opportunities The final site may not have been a difficult home, he helped his & her; showing his own life in the eyes of some. This was definitely a case for those who cited her, some who were laughed when they accepted that she fell asleep for the last time.
For people who are directly involved in investigating the solar system, the most written in thousands of Martian sands Cothrom inspection (28.06 miles or 45.16 kilometers).
"Cothrom a fascinating explorer. the gift of the gift has been given over 50 hours so long & as it was planned first. We're already missed, "Alan Stern, Chief Inspector of New Horizons mission has been reported SpaceFlight Insider.
