Thanks tahanson43206, for keeping some of these types of topics going.
Robots Explore 'Mars-Like' Lava Field in Iceland as Prep for NASA's Mars 2020 Rover

This summer, researchers tested rover and drone prototypes on lava fields in Iceland from July 8 to Aug. 5, 2019. In testing the drone, the team was able to make high-resolution maps of the surface, and using information collected by the drone, "the scientists were able to quickly make decisions about where they wanted to navigate the rover and which science target they wanted to pick. This work will inform NASA's Mars 2020 operations team.

Re: Martian Calender - I have created a martian calender...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Home_Week

This week is a close out of summer for NH in that its called old home week . A time for festival type street community get togethers. So of the communities have strawberry events while others are sort of a block parties.

Every year in August the community of Freedom, New Hampshire celebrates “Old Home Week”, a New Hampshire tradition that was officially recognized by Proclamation in the New Hampshire State Legislature in 1913.

Fireworks might end the celebration as it did in my home town last night.

This would fit in well with My Hacienda as it will celebrate when I get there....
