Anaglyph of the 3 overlapping R & L frames from Sol 222 Navcam centered on the drill site...


...and a full resolution version (12,415 x2,805 pixels) of those late arriving MC100 frames in from Sol 200...


Nice to see a few new images before the April sojourn.

Sol 223 full 360 NLB pano in QT format. Right hand side wheels still there - check!

PS File name is incorrect; it really is 223.

The latest NAIF files show that they did some arm movements on sol 224. It's just past 10pm, sol 224, right now.

There was also some arm movement on Sol 222:

This was a little more action--here's an animation:

As before, not sure if the NAIF files show all the arm movements, especially the high-rate ones, but that's what comes out of the data.

... who said if we're finding these things everywhere they're more likely to be impact lapilli than concretions.


It's not clear that explains the diversity of spherule types from the different locations, but their commonality within the same location.

As an attempt at partial unification, I wonder if the blueberries could have been derived from what were originally newberries by some kind of mineral replacement process involving hematite?

I don't think that there's as yet any basis to postulate any commonallity between the blues & the news, though. Relative physical proximity doesn't necessarily imply any sort of relationship. Each type of berry may well have formed through entirely different mechanisms at widely separated times.

Sol 225. Morning anaglyph views from both Front and Rear Hazcams. Of particular interest in the front view is the brightly illuminated vein catching the sun just between the wheels, and the nice range of depth - from the underbelly all the way to Mt. Sharp. Rear view offers a good views of the wheel tracks behind the rover.

Tosol (sol 227) ChemCam took a look into one of the drillholes. (Link to one of a series of ChemCam images)
May be we'll learn more about the weathering crust (e.g. loss of volatiles), and the layering and structure of the rock.

Maybe they will use the laser on the walls of the drill hole as they could yield different results with depth? Tests on the drill cuttings / tailings is OK but we don't know what depth they came from.

... And I'll note from that LPSC Sed-Strat rundown, we're still returning to the Grasberg Formation at Meridianii...

Is that the same unit that was originally called the Deadwood formation earlier on?

Yeah, they seem to be in crater/out crater or left and right exposures at the base of CY. They look sedimentary, caused by erosion of the shoemaker formation. There was mention of this in one of the LPSC abstracts but I can't locate which one.
Edit. The intro in this one. www.lpi.usra.edu/meetings/lpsc2013/pdf/2294.pdf
