'[OT] Mars Polar Lander'
1999\12\03@094818 by Tom Handley

picon face
  Well, this is WOT but since it's Friday and we have a spacecraft that
should, if the Martians don't shoot it down and if everyone is using metric
units this time around, land on Mars around noon (PST). You will be able to
see live images, check local weather, and hear sounds on the planet.

  I was thinking (I do this on occasion) about what sounds we would like
to hear from Mars. I'll start this off:

     I would like to hear a dog barking ;-)

... what about:
  a)  60Hz humming noise?
  b)  Garbage truck collecting sound?
  c)  Frogs sounding "bud - weis - her"?
  d)  Voice of kids fighting "It's mine, I saw it first!"
  e)  "You've got mail..."?

Wagner,

of course the Martians would be using DC and switching DC-DC
converters,since they have superior intellects ;-)

  Wagner, I like b, c, and d. I hope it's not "a" considering the
Mars Climate Orbiter `disaster', I would hate to think that they had a cold
solder joint on a ground return... If we get "e" then the Martians are
probably sending us a virus ;-)

  - Tom

PSBS: If it's "c", I wanna be on the first manned mission! After 9+ months,
I would `require' a Bud ;-)

Hey! In the "metric" system this would be 50Hz...

I would be so pleased just to hear the sounds of the lander working
properly.

Nasa says:
               Lack of Signal
         "Not Entirely Unexpected"

  Can this speech justify 327 Million Dollars?

Explaining:
  There is no radio signal from actual Mars Polar Lander mission.

  It must land in a correct orientation, if not, the
  radio antenna can not target earth... comics? nahhh,
  probably just lack of imagination. I guess the antenna
  can not rotate and search for an earth signal...

  Everybody still waiting to listen for the rock hit
  the bottom of the well... :) but the rock should
  hit the bottom with the white spot down... :)

  I would like to ask somebody about, "what if the unit
  just land 45¡ rotated out of the planned? just forget
  327 Million dollars?  That chance was so slim that
  it was not considered?"

  I want my One dollar and 30 cents back!

  I always wanted to say that... :)

LOL :)

Actually, if the sound recorder isn't reset, we will all hear:
"Greenbay sucks !  Go Denver !"

The people that made the 'furby' module are greenbay fans.

Hey....

If they did find an obelisk in the first few seconds after landing...

What do you think the "Live Feed" would say?

"No Telemetry.... Not entirely unexpected" ???

Of course it is entirely possible that DR NO, reprogrammed the mars lander
to land in outer slobovia... Too embarrassing for N.A.S.A. to admit.

Of course if it DID land on MARS, and there really is NO TELEMETRY....

One has to ask just what form of redundancy the engineers have built into
the probe, and why all those extra circuits, all failed at the same
time...

A BALLOON failure perhaps?

Of course, it could just be, that the lander is LATE....

got tied up in orbit and couldn't get away in time to phone home?

  It's my understanding that the spacecraft cost each of us 60 cents.
It does have to be on it's legs but there are a lot of reasons to delay
contact including an antenna pointed in the opposite direction, a nearby
hill, etc. They planned on this and the folks that know what they are
doing, said it could take a few days given the celestial mechanics of
our two planets, and pre-programmed safe modes and antenna scans to
acquire a signal. Then there is the Mars Global Surveyor which was
always intended to act as a relay for data transmission. Remember, it
carried two smaller penetrators and the MGS is dedicated to acquiring
their signals for the first couple of days. Then it will try to find a
signal from the MPL.

  The Viking landers cost around 5 billion and we could dozens of
landers for that price. Unlike the Mars Climate Orbiter *bleep*-up,
the trajectory was right on the money in the last few minutes.

  Having said that, I hope it didn't crash ;-)

Actually, the first sounds from Mars was:

"Shhhzz quiqui arghuuuuu"
"Txleat druwhpf xlicx"
"Gruiiiip blip blop huiiiii alck"

Those sound was immediately translated by the super secret NSA quantum
computer. The result was not entirely unexpected.

"Wow, it's kewl"
"and it moves"
"Hurry-up, give me some bag.."

The whole story was immediately covered by goverment conspiracy and NASA is
pretending that they did not make any contact with MPL.

:-)))))

I think it might be the UK version of the sounds the aliens in "Mars
Attacks" make when they laugh.  In American English, it sounds like a
quick "ack ack ack ack..."

Perhaps he is from mars, and is laughing at us instead of with us, and
simply forgot to laugh in non-martian...?
