At location ‘e’ we have been focused on understanding small-scale features, like the tiny crystals and veins seen in the above ChemCam RMI image.

Today we’re continuing our science activities at the Vera Rubin Ridge (VRR) location ‘e.’ It certainly seems that ‘e’ should stand for ‘exciting,’ as we’ve collected quite a rich set of observations at this location…

What’s in a name? From its rather innocuous sounding informal site name, you might not guess that location ‘e’ would generate such excitement in the science team.

During the first day of this plan, Curiosity will focus on acquiring an incredible amount of high-resolution Mast Camera color images of the area immediately in front of the rover, the ‘mid-range’ region a few meters in front of the rover, and the entirety of Mt. Sharp.

For the last several weeks, Curiosity has been hopping between areas of blue-ish toned rocks on the Vera Rubin Ridge and the results from these locations continue to become more compelling.

Today’s image is a color version of part of the workspace image from the Sol 1925-1926 blog, which shows in greater detail the numerous layers and color variations that kept us at this spot for another round of science observations.

Curiosity’s hard work over the holiday break paid off, giving the science team a rich collection of new data to assess and a new workspace to explore.

There’s no real rest for the rover. We planned sols 1921-1924 on December 22 and 29.

This morning Curiosity found herself back on familiar ground, near the targets ‘Lismore’ and ‘Leadhills’ that we imaged back on sol 1905.

Today’s planning session kicked off with an important decision about where to drive Curiosity and how that will set us up for exciting science over the holidays.
