Stopping and Stretching

Hello, my name is Saina Ghandchi. I am a member of engineering, operations team and this is your Curiosity Rover update.

Couple of days ago, we performed some atmospheric measurements with our instrument, SAM. Scientists are going through the data at this point and I’m very excited because since Viking mission, we haven’t had any instruments on Mars than can tell what is the composition of the Martian atmosphere.

We also received these color beautiful HiRise images. They show clearly the back shell, the site where the descent stage crashed. And also, very cool, you can clearly see the rover tracks in these images.
