Sol 568 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Data Squeeze

12 March 2014

MRO is still in safe mode, but enough data were received via Mars Odyssey to allow another drive to be planned on Sol 568, about 70 meters. Again, the data were received late in the day Pacific time, so there was not enough time to plan science observations beyond the standard background and post-drive imaging.
