They have verified they have pictures!

I'm hearing a latitude and longitude of: 68.22 degrees latitude and 234.3 degrees longitude -- gotta go plot that on my map -- that is long, I can say that right now.

"Positive state of charge, meaning solar arrays appear to be out"


We got solar panels, footpad, and the postcard!!!

It is super duper duper flat, just slightly tilted, as they said.

Almost totally featureless

The footpad photo showed a few bits of what (in my preliminary, quick glance) looked like rounded little pebbles! Gotta confirm that though...
