Sol 460 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Stand Down

19 November 2013

I was scheduled as MAHLI/MARDI uplink lead today, but there was nothing to do because all science planning is on hold while the power issue is being investigated. Because planning is restricted this week, diagnostic data acquired today will not be available in time for planning tomorrow. If the diagnostics go well, we may be able to plan scientific observations as early as Thursday, for Sol 461.
