6th February 2017 Sol 1602

We have started the second part of the Bagnold Dunes campaign. This NavCam image shows Bagnold dunes in front of Ireson Hill. This first in the current dunes campaign is Called Mapleton.

Good news for the MSL team is that ChemCam is back in operation after having an electrical fault. We have started with a 5 x 1 laser raster on the ripple crests.
