Opportunity Gets Small Energy Boost With Panel Dust Off
Opportunity is on the west rim of Endeavour Crater heading towards “Marathon Valley,” a putative location for abundant clay minerals now only about 492 feet (150 meters) away.
The project is preparing to mask off the troubled Bank 7 sector of the Flash file system with a new version of the flight software to be uploaded shortly. On Sols 3928 and 3929 (Feb. 10 and 11, 2015), Opportunity performed some targeted color Panoramic Camera (Pancam) observations. On Sol 3930 (Feb. 12, 2015), the rover drove about 66 feet (20 meters) to get a view into Marathon Valley.
