Curiosity update: Preparing to drill

1359MH0004650010502127C00_DXXXSol 1360, June 2, 2016, update from USGS scientist Ken Herkenhoff: Arm work continues to go well, so preparation for drilling and sample analysis is the focus of the Sol 1360 plan.  First, CheMin will dump the Lubango and Okoruso drill samples out of their cells.  Then ChemCam and Mastcam will observe a bright vein named “Charlottenfelder” and a bedrock target called “Chameis Bay” before arm activities resume.  MAHLI will take close-up images of the Oudam drill target and a single image of the “footprint” that APXS likely made on the Okoruso dump pile yesterday.  [More at link]
