A small move on sol 1751, and I think we will have a fairly clear path to the base of the ridge from here.

I'm updating to sol 1754 today with two maps. A third is in the works with details near the last sand scuff.

This update to the "The Martian Way" includes:
- Route update to sol 1759 (last move on sol 1754), with the 17km flag
- Three new quadrants that Curiosity will be traversing while exploring the Vera Rubin ridge (names, anyone?)
- Several changes to the Mars clock - The clock automatically opens when loading the KMZ, but can be called at any time from the left side bar:
-- The displayed time has changed from the MLST (Mean Local Solar Time) at Bradbury Landing to MLST at Curiosity's current position. There is a difference of a few seconds between the two.
-- The main painel now also displays Curiosity current location's coordinates (latitude, longitude)
-- The text in the information panel - accessible by clicking the twistie at the bottom - has been revised.

The MSL route map from NASA/JPL press release Mid-2017 Map of NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover Mission encompasses the whole of Curiosity's route since landing plus the path through the light-toned ridge layer (a.k.a. Vera Rubin Ridge), phyllosilicates and sulfate units, and the climb to Marker Bed (names taken from the May 17, 2011, notional route).

The future route path looks quite exciting and is significantly different from the previous (October 3, 2016) notional route, mainly in the "excursions" on the hematite and phyllosilicates terrains, and a totally new climb through previously not visited terrains. The MSL Planned Routes KML document was updated accordingly.

Attached File  MSL_Planned_Routes_2017JUL11.kmz ( 181.92K ) Number of downloads: 76

This new path is about 7.68 Km long and climbs through some 400 m, as illustrated by the image.

Wow... this is new to me!

The original notional route seemed ambitious/dangerous after 'visiting' in VR...it was steep & sandy.

OK, now where are my goggles...

Murray Buttes map as requested. This includes names from the Analyst's Notebook in PDS including M-designations for the buttes. A few numbers are missing (M3, etc.).

Sol 1786. This drive was supposed to be longer and must have been cut short, probably by excessive tilt or traction issues.

The update includes data from PDS Release 15, covering sols 0 to 1689.

Zooming in a bit as we cross the last bit of Murray Formation and head for the ridge. This includes the sol 1789 drive. (EDIT: replaced map with an updated version)
