Yes, we will be doing a shallow (1.5mm) grind on Sol 2998 and therefore there will be the usual post grind MIs and APXS. The brush happened on Sol 2995.

Not only did I get to grind my 4th hole on Mars today, but was stunned to see that the power predict for Sol 3000 was almost 600W!!!!

Yes folks, that's 600W smile.gif

Loving this.

All-time low Taus, combined with massive cleaning events... it's beautiful.

Now would be a really great time for a super-res panorama of the cratered hills on the farside of Endeavour...(hint hint!)

Now that they have the energy for the necessary heating, I would like to see a dawn low-light image of the crater interior, to complement the dusk images.

We have the power but currently we have very little flash available. Effects of not having our friend ODY for some time.

Just a little experiment...combining the MI of Grasberg1 post-brushing and the color-filter Pancam view.

Ooh, that looks sore. If it starts bleeding, I'd get it looked at... unsure.gif

Seriously tho, really like that! Tried to do that myself a few times but failed miserably, so good work!

Some info at Lenda's blog:
QUOTE
For the future: We plan to cross the skirt of Cape York to the north to look at the transitional layers (do I sound like a geologist yet?) thereon. Then, southward back from whence we came to the first entrance into the Endeavour Crater on the south side of Cape York, and then further sound to Cape Tribulation. Betcha we get there before next Martian winter those RPs are itching to drive the heck out of Oppy, and they're damned good at it, too.
Hopefully that's southward via the "inboard" side of CY...

And I guess this would be the official anniversary moment:

According to my highly technical (read: I cheated and used SPICE again) analysis, Opportunity will hit Sol 3000 at 2012 JUL 02 01:51:32.572 UTC, or 2012 JUL 01 18:51:32.572 PDT.
