Curiosity update: Preparing to drill Marimba

NLB_523287410EDR_F0561236NCAM00271M_-br2Sol 1418, August 1, 2016, update by USGS scientist Ryan Anderson: Today’s plan was all about setting up for our next drill hole. Originally there was going to be no science block at all, but we ended up with a little bit more power than expected, so we managed to fit in a ChemCam observation of the expected drill target, called “Marimba” along with Mastcam documentation.  Once that was done, the rover dumped its sieved sample from our previous drill at “Oudam” and did some contact science on Marimba.
