Sol 275 Update On Curiosity From USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: On the Cumberland Trail

15 May 2013

It's good to see that the activities we planned over the weekend went well--the rover is now in position to drill the target "Cumberland." I'm MAHLI payload uplink lead for Sol 275, and helped plan MAHLI images of the potential drill target. These images are intended to confirm that the target is suitable for drilling.
