Mars Rover Image Names

Hello all,

Does anyone else keep up to date with the rover and constatly download the raw images? my dad and i have been but they always come with their names “encoded” with all that gibberish that have you have t osit there converting if you want to know anything about them.

I finnally got so bored today, now that the robot is done, that i made a program that extracts the information from the name so you don’t have to.

so, if there is anyone else here who finds converting the names annoying and would like a copy of the program you can e-mail me at
