Curiosity update: ‘Contact science on Big Sky’

NLB_496221605EDR_F0500592NCAM00353M_Sol 1114-1115, September 23, 2015, update from USGS scientist Ken Herkenhoff: The 14-meter Sol 1112 drive completed as planned, and the rover is in a good position for contact science.  There are flat areas in front of the rover that are suitable for drilling, so the Sol 1114 plan includes DRT brushing, MAHLI imaging, and APXS measurements of a target named “Big Sky.”  Before the arm is deployed, ChemCam and Mastcam will observe Big Sky and “Big Rock.”  [More at link]
