here is the sequence of ChemCam observations after drilling wheel.gif- imgur.com/z9LJnvF.gif
I used Jan's mosiac as a base, and only layered the relevant, in-focus information from the next image on top of that, so the animation doesn't jump around too much

probably not a good idea to stand between the rover and this hole


2 images of larger chunks being moved

Sol 2065, another small sample dump near the first three spots. (Those first three spots are so diffuse that they could be interpreted in other ways than I show here). The black ellipse is the new location.

Needs Must!
Hopefully this will soon become commonplace on Mars. NavCam frames from sol 2068 showing the drill positioned over The CheMin inlet port (cover closed) I guess how common it becomes depends on the MAHLI images of the 1 mm screen inside the port, after sample delivery. Fingers crossed for a successful delivery and completion of test smile.gif

From the Mission Update https://mars.jpl.nasa.gov/msl/mission/mars-...ission-updates/ sample delivery seems to be coming up short. Perhaps gravity has a greater impact on the amount of sample delivered than was anticipated based on trials on Earth. Or of course some other factor such a temperature, sample cohesion or even winnowing during sample delivery.

Curiosity successfully delivered samples to CheMin laboratory!

While we wait for the delivery to SAM lab, here is a RMI/ChemCam mosaic colorized with MastCam 100mm, taken on sol 2041:

It took a while before all the images where down and Debayered
but here is the Sol 1995 Mastcam L view.

There has been a lot more reaction in the mainstream media than on this site . . . Or is that because of rule 1.3?

ADMIN MODE: Likely, yes. However, discussion of the detection of organics is not prohibited, as long as it doesn't drift into speculation that leads to claims of life detection. For the record, that will not be discussed here unless and until there is incontrovertible peer-reviewed validated evidence and it is expressly stated by a competent authority (that means NASA or another government institution with full public support of and concurrence by the world scientific community) that such a discovery has been confirmed...and even then the admin/mod team will have to decide to allow it.

Yes, that is an extremely high standard to meet. But this Forum has been defined by such standards over time for very good reasons, and it is the core of our reputation.

In the meantime, please feel free to discuss these very interesting findings. The appropriate subform for this mission is here. Thanks! smile.gif




--------------------
A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.
