NASA Mars Curiosity rover drives and leads science again after experiencing a memory anomaly in September. Rover last weekend headed for a place called Orcadie Lake, approximately 60 meters, and its total odometry exceeded 20 kilometers. It was the longest Curiosity ride since she experienced a memory anomaly on September 15, 2018. On October 3rd, he switched to a replacement computer called Side-A Computer.
As with many spacecrafts, curiosity was designed with two redundant computers – in this case called the Side-A and Side-B computers – to continue the operation if a malfunction occurred. After reviewing several options, JPL engineers recommended the rover switch from side B to side A.
The Curiosity Engineering Team at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory continues to diagnose the anomaly on the B computer's side. The experience used the computer on page A initially after landing on Mars in August 2012. Page Experienced hardware and software business more than five years ago, says NASA, leaving the rover unmanned and running down its battery. At that time, the team successfully switched to page B. Engineers were diagnosed and placed in Quarantine a portion of memory A that was affected, so the computer is available again to support the mission. Steven Lee of JPL is Vice President of the Curiosity Project. Lee said in his statement:
At this point, we are confident that we will return to full operations, but it is too early to say how soon. On page A we start today, but it could take a long time to understand the underlying cause of the problem and to propose a memory solution on page B.
We spent the last week touring Party A and preparing it for an exchange. It is certainly possible to run a mission on a Side-A computer if we really need it. But our plan is to switch back to B as soon as we manage to solve the problem to use its larger amount of memory.
Conclusion: The NASA Mars Curiosity rover has released its longest ride after experiencing a memory anomaly on September 15, 2018.
