Sol 514 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Nearby Rocks

15 January 2014 Today was a busy planning day, as we put a lot of activities into the Sol 514 plan. We used the data acquired after the "bump" on Sol 513 to pick a couple of interesting nearby rocks for thorough ChemCam and Mastcam observations. Then one last set of MAHLI images of the wheels will be taken before the rover drives about 30 meters toward the SSW. Today was my last day as SOWG Chair this month, and I'm happy about the way it went.
