Curiosity update: Still at Precipice

FRB_534822062EDR_F0592830FHAZ00302M_-br2Sol 1548-49, December 12, 2016, update by USGS scientist Ryan Anderson: Unfortunately, one of the drill diagnostics early in the plan indicated a problem, which prevented most of the other activities for the weekend (including the arm motion and drive) from happening. So that means that for the Sol 1548-1549 plan the rover is still sitting at Precipice. In addition to more drill diagnostics, ChemCam has a long-distance RMI mosaic of “Ireson Hill”, as well as two additional observations of the target “Blue Hill”. Mastcam will document the Blue Hill observations, and take an image of a butte named “Oak Hill”. [More at link]
