On Wednesday, during a routine flight software update, we took the opportunity to closely examine the local rocks using our proximity science instruments while the rover was parked. Despite limited outcrop in the area, the team identified a target called “Old Faithful Geyser” for abrasion. This process will reveal a fresh and clean stone surface free of dust or stone coatings, providing valuable insights into the geology of these rocks.

Since our last abrasion at Bunsen Peak work area located almost 1 km to the east, the team has been studying potential textural and compositional variability across the marginal unit. This analysis could offer significant information about the geological history of these rocks. After the abrasion, detailed chemical measurements using PlXL instrument are planned over the weekend.

Using downtime to update software, we were able to explore and analyze our vicinity’s rocks in greater detail. The chosen abrasion target “Old Faithful Geyser” will help us gain a clearer view of rock surfaces, revealing important details. The team’s efforts to understand textural and compositional variability across marginal units are vital in gaining insight into these rocks’ geologic history.

The team plans to conduct detailed chemical measurements using PlXL instrument after abrasion on Old Faithful Geyser. Since their last study at Bunsen Peak work area located almost 1 km away from their current position, they have been carefully analyzing potential textural and compositional variability across marginal units. This research could provide crucial information about these rocks’ geological past.

During a routine flight software update on Wednesday, we had an opportunity to examine local rocks more closely with our proximity science instruments while parked near Old Faithful Geyser. Although there were limited outcrops in that area, we identified it as a suitable location for abrasion. Abrading this target will reveal a fresh and unblemished stone surface free of dust or coatings, giving us valuable insights into rock composition.

Following up on previous studies at Bunsen Peak work area located almost 1 km away from us, we have been meticulously examining potential textural and compositional variations across marginal units since our last abrasion two weeks ago. After this process is complete, we plan to perform detailed chemical measurements using PlXL instrument over the weekend.

We took advantage of downtime during Wednesday’s flight software update to investigate nearby rocks more deeply with our proximity science instruments while parked near Old Faithful Geyser. Although there were limited outcrops in that region, we identified it as an ideal spot for abrasion due to its clear visibility of rock surfaces.
