Sol 75 Update on Curiosity from USGS Scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Week Off

23 October 2012

I'm not at JPL for the rest of the week, but was glad to see that the ChemCam shot at the soil near MSL went as planned on Sol 74. Since then, more observations of the ChemCam calibration targets have been successfully acquired, which is good news because the calibration is long overdue. Also, a Mastcam image of the latest soil scoop was returned.
