Re: Dust

I wonder how long the tracks left by the depositing rover will last? Just how much depth of dust does a dust storm drop? Maybe they can just follow the tracks?

On the other hand, they know precisely where the original landed and should have a very good idea of exactly how far and in which direction it travelled. Dead reckoning should be quite accurate.
