Sol 212 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Nothing to Do

20 March 2013

I'm scheduled as MAHLI/MARDI uplink lead again today, but there's nothing for me to do because the engineers at JPL are still working to recover from recent software anomalies. The latest fault was not serious, but delayed the return to nominal science operations. The instruments have been turned on and checked out on the "B" computer, so we are ready to go when the anomaly recovery is completed.
