Are we expecting to see or find something different there this time?

They think the crater is an ancient lake bed so the chances of finding microbial life should be better.

One of the early landers had a color chart on it. The photos were 1s and 0s but computers were able to read the chart to get the correct colors. My memory is the first shots are always b&w

The first two photos taken were shot through the red filter only and still had the debris covers in place.

Yes, the footage from the descent and touchdown is the stuff of science fiction. The quality of the images is almost too good to be believed. Truly fantastic.

Do you expect to see or find something different if you get off a plane in Sydney, as opposed to one landing in Moscow?

We put the first lander on Mars in July 1976 and it’s simply amazing to see how far we have come in that time - even considering Spirit and Opportunity - huge leaps in capability.

Can’t wait to see video from the helicopter.
