Sol 398 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: The Veins

18 September 2013

The short drive to the next contact science location at Waypoint 1 was successful, so we planned a lot of MAHLI images and a couple ChemCam observations of the veins in front of the rover. Planning is still restricted, so these data will not be received in time to plan Sol 399, but will be used to plan APXS observations of the veins on Sol 400.
