re: NASA Pauses Mars Missions To Avoid Interference
Was this a foreseen obstacle? I am sure NASA has the capability of planning for this and planned for this outage. As infrequent as the solar conjunctions occur they must have had this plan of action in place for this situation. I would think that because of the lack of communication with the rover that teams would be more on alert as to a event occurring, rather than using this time to catch up on sleep and vacation.
