pic: Game Hint GPS on Mars



After some trial and error, I found out how to map GPS coordinates into Google Mars. Thus, here is the 2008 game hint on Mars.

[strike]Formerly[/strike] water game anyone? :stuck_out_tongue:

notice how there are craters on each side of this streaming ravine area? I wonder if there are going to be circle goals on two sides with some sort of line work/ribbon/pole deco between them.

BTW, best use of game hint ever.

Obviously we’re going to have to build a robot that goes to mars

simple enough.

Hello FEDEX can you ship this crate to Mars? :smiley:

ahem. :slight_smile: I thought of this way back in April!

After many trials and tribulations, including squinting and typing in the URL in the picture – how did you do this? I finally put the picture side-by-side with google and searched ( :ahh: ) – but I found it!


“Bother,” said Pooh, “Eeyore, ready two photon torpedoes and lock phasers on the Heffalump. Piglet, meet me in transporter room three. Christopher Robin, you have the bridge.”

Isn’t the suggested hint of the dry river bed between craters just simply magnificent?

I thought those were caused by Dave’s robots moving back & forth so many times over the same spot… over 1400 Sols and counting.

Good thing NASA didn’t buy the extended warranty.

Don

Yes.

Or rather, **No, **not anymore, since Fed-Ex’s sponsorship of Space Mountain in Walt Disney World ended in 2004/2005. :frowning:

i also found if you reverse the coordinates on planet earth you get to Antarctica
right under Argentina

Indeed you do.

Looks more like a flooding after a dam break, the amount of water (or whatever liquid it may be) overflowing the riverbank and scouring the surrounding plains. I remember seeing something on Nova about this, but I couldn’t find a picture.

Maybe in April if we go to the Finals on Mars I can check this out…

Be sure to take lots of photos!

I always hated the game Frogger. :rolleyes:

Maybe it’s actually a hit for 2009, when they’ll be having the inaugural Mars regional.

Actually this is plausible. I heard from Robot magazine that NASA is hosting the X-Prize. It’s for anyone who can send a rover to Mars.:slight_smile:

Reminiscence of this thread maybe:http://www.chiefdelphi.com/forums/showthread.php?t=58752&highlight=mars
Could FIRST be in contact with google?:smiley:

Also championships will be pretty expensive to go to if it is on Mars; if its still in Atlanta, we have an issue with the playing field.

Maybe the championship (there is no “Nationals”) playing field will be on Mars, but all the operator stations will be in Atlanta…

Maybe it is slip and slide… You don’t need tanks, but it had better be water-proof.
