    Talking Another Challenge - Opportunity from Mars

    Hi All

    I found the CD on Opportunity via the JPL site.
    Can anyone clean it up and post it here ?
    I am thinking it has a code as well...
    It is a 1024 X 1024 JPG
    Might as well get a jump on it....

    Hope someone can clean it up a little bit. You sure it's not the same one as before? I'm gonna have to start trying to work on the first challenge myself.

    Thanks in advance.

    Code attached...don't know how accurate it is. I did what I could...I'll do it again at work on Monday if someone doesn't beat me to it (I've got better imaging software there).

    Anyhow, from the looks of it, and I know it's early for speculation, but it seems to be encoded in glyphs. The glyphs seem to be made up of bits that have 5 possible settings per placeholder and 3 placeholders per glyph., which would mean 125 possible permeations per glyph.

    Individual bit settings seem to be horizontal, and the placeholders are vertically stacked ontop of one another.

    This one's gonna be much more complex than the last one!

    My first thought was Brail (a method that the blind use to read text)
    or even CW (Morse Code)

    whee here we go again!

    Seriously though it doesn't look like morse code the sequence seem wrong. then again it has been about 15 years since I used morse so i could be mistaken. I dont think I will be able to do anything better with the image but i will give it a shot.

    Actually, Highlander, it appears to be very similar to braille, except it includes the use of dashes in addition to dots....maybe it's a braille-morse hybrid? I don't know. I'm working on the image now.......I'll post what I get.
