Sol 697 - 698 Update on Curiosity from USGS Scientist Ryan Anderson: Holding Off

24 July 2014

No science uplink was sent to the rover for sol 697 or 698 because the engineers are investigating an issue with the rover's backup computer. The primary computer used in day-to-day operations is healthy, but we are holding off on science operations until we are sure the backup is healthy, just to be safe. The blog will resume when we start science operations again.
