Looks like they have completed the long awaited drive to the NE on 1962, path looks like a dogs leg, but the point to point may be around 50m. Still playing with ICE sad.gif

I stitched a couple of MC100 pictures focusing on the foothills and outcrops on sol 1957 and 1959. Photos are taken at ~12h local time, so not a lot of contrast.







I also combined a recent RMI mosaic taken on sol 1961 with a MC100 picture to show the location of the outcrop that was imaged:

Great pictures, everybody - what an amazing place we are coming to! The next few years are going to be spectacular.

Potential Drill Site?
L-MastCam arm workspace: Sol 1962 (MS ICE) minimal processing, some nice surface details on the exposed bedrock
Fingers crossed they get the all clear to drill... Been a while smile.gif

Gregory Dubos, who works at JPL on Curiosity, recently tweeted (@astroptere) that his team is currently preparing a new drilling attempt.

Good spot Thomas smile.gif
The possibility of using the drill at this location is also addressed in the sol 1963 mission update

The 1965 mission update calls for a 360 MastCam mosaic, maybe to support that they have also acquired a NavCam set of the Rover deck smile.gif Should be an impressive panorama from this vantage point.

There is also a nice candidate for another iron-nickel meteorite in the arm workspace, the team are going to be here for a while if the ground is suitable to attempt drilling, so maybe they will give it a zap to see if it is iron, I hope the coating on its topside is not dust, maybe wishful thinking that is a ferrous oxide, or maybe where is was in contact with a rock (if it was buried in the sediments)

This is part of Paul's workspace mosaic (with a little patch), posted earlier, annotated with recent activities.

FYI (from Ashwin), the smaller pile (upper one in your view) is the sieved (fine-grained) sample, the larger pile the unsieved (coarse-grained) sample.

Curiosity update forthcoming.
