Sol 102 - 1:17pm LMST - A few final shots at Rocknest. The scoops have been driven over and are now a memory. Aloha...





Sol 102 - 3:23pm LMST - Saddle up the palominos boys... we're movin' again...

I didn't realise straight away that the sol 102 drive was a fair distance.

It was also mentioned that there was a touch-and-go, which I assume was before sol 102's drive: https://twitter.com/spaceroboticist/status/...6548352/photo/1

Was the touch-and-go with the APXs?

I should remember to check the Astrogoelogy news site more often. Some very rare up-to-date information there.

Looks like that there will be a check of the drill tosol.

Grotzinger indicates SAM soil results could be a big deal; several more weeks before confident enough to release.

A quote from the article.

QUOTE
Grotzinger says they recently put a soil sample in SAM, and the analysis shows something earthshaking. "This data is gonna be one for the history books. It's looking really good," he says.

Great pano Ant103, thanks. Very nice to see the new perspectives almost all the way round. What a difference a few meters makes ay?
Here's a Sol 103 three frame anaglyph looking toward Phil's sea lions, and the rock slab outcrops. Catches a nice slice of the the foothills too...

It seems the area we are looking at is called Yellowknife Bay.

ADMIN NOTE: TO ALL...
Following the interview by MSL's John Grotzinger today, there has been much speculation about the nature of any future announcement.
We would remind everyone on UMSF about Rule 1.3. We appreciate that this is a very strict rule but we do expect everyone to follow it.
We may review and amend the rule at some future point, but for now it stands as is. Many thanks for your understanding.
