Curiosity update: ‘Turning in to Bridger Basin’

NLB_494529240EDR_F0492026NCAM00263M_Sol 1094, September 3, 2015, update from USGS scientist Lauren Edgar: The drive on Sol 1093 went well, and Curiosity drove ~15 m towards Bridger Basin.  In the Sol 1094 plan, we’ll drive for ~30 m to round the turn into the basin, as we continue making our way through the Stimson unit.  These rocks exhibit a lot of beautiful cross-bedding, as seen in the Sol 1093 Navcams.

Today’s plan consists of ChemCam and Mastcam observations on the targets “Whitewater” and “Whitefish,” two targets that are within a bright, bleached area near a fracture.  After a short drive, we’ll take standard post-drive imaging to help with targeting in tomorrow’s plan. [More at link]
