What incredibly expensive high tech camera was used to take the awesome pictures? Was a live person taking them and carrying a camera, or was there a remote control bot in tow hauling it around?

The photos were taken by crew member Bianca Nowak, an awesome amateur photographer.

Soooo awesome!
Are you really the first science fiction writer to do this? Because, while awesome that you get to be first, it's a shame they haven't gotten a writer in all this time. But then, I guess no one applied, did they?

Turns out Wil McCarthy preceded me; he even wrote about it in Analog in 2005 http://www.analogsf.com/0507/issue_07.shtml

This is so cool, reading about you ON MARS or a fair facsimile of same. Thank you for blogging about it and sharing such great photos!

I'm sorry, that last one was me. :(

So, OK *taking notes* we'll have to have some later ramifications of the stubbed toe...or maybe the milk crate contains something that will be critical to the plot later...
