Sol 488 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Damage Assessment

19 December 2013

The Sol 488 plan includes ChemCam and Mastcam observations of the Cumberland drill sample that was dumped in front of the rover, completing the campaign on the dump pile. Then MAHLI will be used to image the rover's wheels, to more completely assess any damage.
