Congratulations to the InSight team on a successful landing! We'll discuss the remainder of the mission here. smile.gif

A few will take this knowledge and use this power of a dream realized as a force for change, an impetus for further discovery to make less ancient dreams real.

Quick recap of arm activities: on sol 417 the scoop was lifted off the soil so the pit could be imaged, and then its tip was pushed down into the surface a bit further out than the hole. I thought that might be a prelude to trying to pull some soil into the hole. On sol 420 the tip of the scoop was pushed down on the far edge of the hole, causing a bit of wall collapse into the hole.
