Sol 520 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: No Rest for the Rover

22 January 2014 Another drive was planned on Monday, despite the federal holiday, and it went well. The images taken after that drive were used to plan targeted remote sensing (Mastcam and ChemCam) on rocks dubbedDoran and Togo on Sol 520. Then another drive was planned to get the rover in position for another set of wheel images, which are planned every time the rover has driven 100 meters.
