Our plans for sols 3192 and 3193 include contact science, remote sensing, and driving. We’ll observe a nodular bedrock target named “Champeaux” with APXS and MAHLI first thing in the morning on sol 3192. Then we’ll capture Mastcam and ChemCam RMI mosaics of some of the scenic terrain surrounding Curiosity, a ChemCam LIBS observation of “Manaurie,” and additional Mastcam images of surrounding outcrops. After wrapping up science at this site, we’ll drive along our strategic route up Mount Sharp and spend the second sol of the plan collecting observations that monitor the environment. We’ll also acquire a ChemCam autonomously selected AEGIS observation.
