Solar storm caused “Kyuriositi” hibernate
Solar storm caused “Kyuriositi” hibernate March 7, 2013
After a lull because of some problems associated with memory, Martian rover “Kyuriositi” again “fell into hibernation” due to approaching Mars solar storm.
“A storm is coming! Mars is moving to solar storms. I’m going to get some sleep while he will ”
– The message “left rover” on its official website to Twitter .
The sun is now at its peak, which occurs every 11 years. So powerful solar emissions will continue for the next few months.
These solar flares can not accept any threat to Earth or any spacecraft and rovers on Mars. Two orbiting satellites, which fly around the Red Planet will be working in its normal mode.
But at NASA have decided to play it safe because of the recent problems with the very “Kyuriositi.” This means that the rover’s current work – the analysis of the samples of the rock, which gathered “Kyuriositi” – will have a little delay.
Higher intelligence recommends:
The truth about a shiny object from Mars
“Kyuriositi” completed its first full drilling Mars
“Kyuriositi” found on Mars strange shiny object
