Morse on Mars


#1

Not really radio, but interesting.

Oh I do hope this is true.

Gaps in the wheels of Curiosity rover are spelling out JPL in Morse on the Martian surface.

JPL stands for Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is the home to the project.

In reply to MW6AQU:

Yes it is true. They are using the Morse markers to identify traveled distance by photos of the tracks, presumably to verify other identifiers of traveled distance.
