Sol 590 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Arrival at The Kimberley

4 April 2014

MSL has arrived at The Kimberley waypoint! The Sol 590 plan was dominated by Mastcam stereo observations of the extensive outcrop in front of the rover. Overnight, SAM will perform a cleaning activity in preparation for new sample analysis. The Mastcam mosaics should be useful in evaluating potential drill locations.
