We acquired the information that we had been lacking throughout Wednesday’s planning, so we hit the bottom working in the present day, able to plan for contact science and our drive onto the Marker Band on this new location! Early in planning the Geology and Mineralogy science theme group chosen two targets in our workspace that can be brushed and examined with MAHLI and APXS named “Paredao” and “Curupira.”
ChemCam will even be capable of observe targets within the workspace, hitting one of many contact science targets, Paredao, with its laser, in addition to two darker float rocks with attention-grabbing textures named “Uaica” and “Paruaina.” Mastcam will picture the entire targets, together with amassing multispectral pictures of the 2 DRTed areas.
Mastcam will even gather a number of massive mosaics of the encircling space, supplementing the superior imaging we already acquired on this location on Wednesday. The Ambiance and Setting science theme group additionally deliberate observations to proceed to evaluate the surroundings within the native space.
Our drive will then take us on prime of the Marker Band. We’re excited to check this distinctive characteristic from a brand new location, and also will be looking out for rocks which may make appropriate targets for a 3rd drill try.

In search of a new marker band drill site: Sols 3708-3709
Pasadena CA (JPL) Jan 12, 2023
We proceed to characterize the Marker Band and the bedrock just under it, with the intention of understanding the origin of the Marker Band. For in the present day’s two-sol plan, in an space under the Marker Band, we deliberate early morning APXS and MAHLI (Contact and Go) on the brushed goal “Jenipapo,” much like the flattest materials within the accompanying Mastcam picture.
Mastcam will purchase some multi-spectral imaging on the identical goal, and on the goal “Pau Baru,” seen within the higher proper of the Mastcam picture. This … read more
