NASA2,445,590To watch on YouTube, visit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r7_BZe6cGoI ----- The director, a writer and some actors in the film "Star Trek Into Darkness" will join NASA astronauts as we host a Google+ Hangout On Air from noon to 12:45 p.m. EDT, May 16, about how work aboard the International Space Station is turning science fiction into reality. Participating in the hangout will be NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy, who currently is living and working aboard the space station; astronauts Michael Fincke and Kjell Lindgren at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston; director J.J. Abrams, screenwriter and producer Damon Lindelof; and stars of the film, Chris Pine, Alice Eve and John Cho. The participants will ask questions of each other and take questions from the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City (home of the space shuttle Enterprise), the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in Washington, and social media followers.  Ask a question prior to or during the event by posting a comment here or on Twitter using the #askNASA hashtag.NASA Connects Space Station and "Star Trek Into Darkness" Crews2013-05-16 18:00:002736  
NASA2,445,590Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008329

Let's face it: A lot of us are lucky to be "degrading gracefully."

So this is unfortunate. Happily, though, it's not fatal. The MER rovers were designed to be able to operate in this non-flash mode (to "degrade gracefully" in the face of hardware failures), so it's far from being end-of-mission, as the article is careful to say.

If I correctly remember the story I was told, the non-flash-mode capability was added to allow rover testing before the flash code was fully developed and debugged, then retained because the designers realized how useful it might prove on the surface. Once again, their foresight is validated!

Still, not being able to rely on flash has some downsides not mentioned in the article: crucially, if anything goes wrong on Opportunity between the last comm pass of the sol and rover shutdown, we'll never know about it because any data products that logged the problem will simply be lost at shutdown. It's a little like always having to shut down your computer without saving the last few changes to your documents.

Even so, Opportunity can continue doing science and returning gorgeous pictures of her present home, Endeavour Crater. And we're all grateful for that.

(Oddly, the article's picture is of course of Curiosity, not Opportunity. "Those Mars rovers all look alike to me"?)___Let's face it: A lot of us are lucky to be "degrading gracefully."
