wait.....why are we storing the data for only 3months and how is data of interest determined....and we are storing the data on a spacecraft, in interplanetary space, where all kinds of crap could go wrong.

...confuses me even more!   Why bother storing data onboard, if you're also going to be transmitting terabits of it back home every two weeks?
