Curiosity update: Deja vu

1302ML0061910720405647E01_DXXXSol 1305-06, April 6, 2016, update from USGS scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Once again, the Sol 1303 drive stopped during wheel steering, apparently due to another short in the RTG.  While the power and mobility engineers investigate the fault and ways to respond to them, another drive will be attempted on Sol 1305.  The remote science observations made on Sol 1303 went well, so only one ChemCam/ Mastcam observation is planned before the Sol 1305 drive, of a rock with interesting surface texture dubbed “Katwitwi.”  [More at link]
