Curiosity update: ‘Official new selfie!’

PIA19808_ipSol 1080-1081, August 19, 2015, update from USGS scientist Ryan Anderson: We had another successful drive on 1079, going about 29 meters this time. The plan for sols 1080- 1081 is pretty similar to the previous plan: remote sensing and a drive on the first day, and untargeted science on the second day. On sol 1080, ChemCam has observations of the targets “Red Lodge”, “Mowry”,  and “Rosebud”, with accompanying Mastcam images. Mastcam will also take a 19-frame stereo mosaic of a cliff dubbed “Judith River”. After the drive, we have our standard post-drive imaging, plus an active measurement with DAN. [More at link]
