Explore Mars with Maestro

michael posted more than 10 years ago | from the sim-mars dept.

Space 180

The Maestro Team writes "NASA has released Maestro, a public version of the primary software tool used by scientists to operate the Mars Exploration Rovers from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Anyone can download Maestro for free from mars.telascience.org and use it to follow along with the rovers' progress during the mission. You can use Maestro to view pictures from Mars in 2D and 3D and create simplified rover activity plans. During the mission, updates will be released for Maestro containing the latest images from Mars."

For those bound to complain re: NASA's performance (5, Insightful)

the man with the pla (710711) | more than 10 years ago | (#7868617)

The problem is that NASA doesn't have the same backing as it did back in the 60's. We went to the moon because it was a priority, and a lot of money and effort was thrown at it. Now NASA is constantly struggling to make as much as they can out of a diminishing budget. I believe that this, more than anything else caused the accident.

If you are an administrator at NASA and you are told that their might be a problem with the age of the fleet and you know the odds of getting funding for a new project are near zero, do you keep that fleet flying? Of course. That's hardly the safest thing to do, but it's either that or close up shop and go work the chinese space program.

NASA puts safety as first as it can afford to. You can argue that NASA is an inefficent bureaucracy, but we seem to have no trouble financing the inefficent military bureaucracy. It's the nature of government, cope.

Re:For those bound to complain re: NASA's performa (1)

HeghmoH (13204) | more than 10 years ago | (#7868842)

NASA has axed at least one shuttle replacement/supplement project for non-financial reasons. Or rather, they had to pick something to axe, and they thought perhaps it was cheaper to keep flying the shuttle at $500 million a launch than to develop something more rational.

It's true that NASA is not funded as well as perhaps it should. But the problem is that they have no concept of the idea of doing things halfway. Whenever they are asked for a proposal or budget estimate for nearly any subject at all, they pretty much respond with a plan which culminates in landing men on Mars and costs $500 billion. "Propose a shuttle replacement and give a cost estimate." "We will build the replacement, proposed design here, use it to assemble a giant ship in orbit, and then fly to Mars! Total cost: $500 billion! What a bargain!"

Ok, so this is a bit of an exaggeration, but the idea is right. NASA is incapable of working with less than an ideal amount of money. They repeatedly make ridiculous budget requests and then do a terrible job when they are forced to make do with only half the money.

Re:For those bound to complain re: NASA's performa (1)

Dravik (699631) | more than 10 years ago | (#7868948)

You can only cut back so much before you just don't have enough resources to get the job done. Some things can't be done halfway. In space flight doing something halfway gets you the challenger and columbia accidents.

NASA's business model makes this kind of a rip off. In this space-aged version of "give away the razor, sell the blades", you don't actually get to run your own mission with this freebie software. Instead, all you get to do is watch as NASA calls all the shots for the two demo probes that are being sent to Mars this month. It's like they're handing out game consoles with no input controllers to go with them.

What they don't tell you up front is that if you actually want to run your own mission, you're going to have to pony up at least $100 million to buy a probe of your own. NASA stands to make a pretty penny if they sucker many people to buy into this scheme.

Security threat (-1, Troll)

Burgundy Advocate (313960) | more than 10 years ago | (#7868850)

Does this worry anybody else?

It's great that the government is starting to buy into the open-source software mentality, but is this really a good idea? I mean, if they open the source to satellite protocols then it can allow the terrorists access to our spy satellites and our space probes. If they get access to those they can use the satellites to spy on US! and make it so we can't spy back on them, and also they can use the probes to contact other races in the universe! We have a hard enough time with them as is, let's not give them an added advantage. I don't want our hard earned tax dollars on the mars rover used to contact aliens so they can kill us like terrorists. That's not a good idea. NOT AT ALL MISTER BUSH! NOTICE HOW I DIDN'T SAY PRESIDENT YOU UNELECTED WORM! I can't believe they would be so flippant about the nation's security.

NASA has become too lax on security. They really need to work on that -- maybe we should institute an "office of space security" to lead and watch over NASA. Especially with the Chinese in space -- with other rogue countries soon to follow -- the heavens are about to become the new battlefield. We need to be prepared.

Well, we just discovered how NOT ready we were for Slashdot. Is there any hope of getting ahold of a Slashdot editor and arranging for temporary relief? If we can get an hour or so to put up some mirrors and bittorrent links, then I'll think we'll be ready for you.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
