Mars in a Minute: What happens when the Sun blocks our signal?

Well, not ‘our’ signal  – this is in fact a NASA video referring to what happens when their Curiosity rover’s signal gets blocked. But precisely the same thing happens with ESA’s Mars Express, which happens regularly (see previous reports in ESA web here).

But we love this nifty JPL video that illustrates the situation in a fun and humours way – and wanted to make sure you saw it, too!
