Does anyone know if there are any preliminary results from the RISE experiment?

a quick recap of InSight's first scientific results on today's Nature

‘Marsquakes’ reveal red planet’s hidden geology

I think I read somewhere that the first papers were going to be published this week in Science (or Nature) but I'm not sure

“…but that they expected InSight’s landing place to have cohesionless soils because that’s what other Martian landing sites have been like.
InSight seems to have been unlucky enough to land in a place where the soil is compacted into a harder material called a duricrust,…”
What would have happened if they had landed at VL or VL2 landing sites, with high soil cohesion ?

Last hammer session of the year on sol 380

Animated IDC GIF: indicates a slowing of progress as the session progressed, then a minuscule bounce? before a little more downward progress? Hopefully a few more images in the pipeline smile.gif

Almost as if it is running into something hard.

The team mentioned a hard duricrust layer, I'm not sure if they know how thick that layer is, but progress of the mole slowed at this depth last time. Fingers crossed it's almost through that harder layer...

The DLR HP3 blog for the mole has been updated (December 23, 2019) smile.gif

As the update explains, it seems that the cohesionless sand below the duricrust is the problem. They need friction to make progress.

not much going on mole-wise, so looking for environmental subtleties, here's ten frames from 14 sols: 383//385//387/388/389/390/391///394/395/396 all are taken at within one second of each other 15:53:49 to highlight any wind effects as well as some unexpectedly noticeable seasonal illumination changes.

Seems like the scoop is getting a bit dusty?

pretty much all was deposited between sol383 and sol385 must have been a particularly windy sol to have kicked up that much, but unfortunately the date range has cycled out (where to find full data?) so cant tell if those sols had anything above the normal max gusts...

Hammer attempt? Sol 400 Scoop movement, but I don't see any obvious movement by the mole.

Processed frames used to assemble this animated GIF using the three frames where there was movement. I guess other frames maybe in the pipeline?

Putting more pressure on the mole at this stage, I think, with a hammer to follow.
