Sol 489 - 491: Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Wheel Imaging Campaign

20 December 2013

The 3-sol weekend plan starts with targeted remote science (ChemCam and Mastcam observations), then completion of the thorough wheel imaging campaign. MAHLI and Mastcam images of the wheels are planned to document wear, and MARDI images of the terrain near the left front wheel will also be acquired. I'll be on vacation for a week, but plan to monitor MSL's progress.
