5th April 2017 Sol 1658

The second Bagnold Dunes campaign is now drawing to a close.  We have a sieved (150 micron) sample of the dune in the internal cache which will be used for SAM isotope and organic analyses, and CheMin mineral identification.

Here we see an array (a ’10 by 1′) of ChemCam laser shots captured by MastCam.
