Follow along! We’re in the midst of twittering an entire planning cycle, start to finish. Right now we’re in what’s called “IO week 1″, the second week of a 5-week planning process. You can follow the hashtag #hitwycle to see all the updates in real time.
This blog entry describes it in much more detail, from when we tried to do this last fall. Unfortunately, that time the spacecraft went into safe mode, and we had to stop the experiment. Here’s hoping for better luck this time! :\
Cast of characters:
One difference is that this time the CIPP (@nick_space) is here in Tucson. So it’s pretty easy to walk over to his office and ask him a question. Despite that, we’ve actually had a few discussions over twitter instead. Talk about lazy!! The good side of that is that you get to follow the day-to-day planning and see what it’s really like to plan two weeks of HiRISE images!
