How were the Bridles separated between the “sky crane” and the rover?

Was there redundancies in place if the initial separation between descent and rover failed?

When the rover drops samples for pickup later, will it drop them all in the same spot and how is that determined?

How many hours per SOL do you have access to the Rover through orbiters to download info? Are there ever blackout hours?

Thanks Dr. H. So amazing to know that we kinda have to play things by ear from 120 million miles away. I can’t imagine the logistics that go into that for your team. Congrats and hope to see some samples in my lifetime. The level of sterilization required to ensure there is nothing we introduced here on both sides of that is also an incredible feat.

NASA team refers to “passes” when collecting data and curious as to what that means exactly.
