nasa_ares After exploring other outcrops in the Pahrump Hills, scientists decided to drive Curiosity back to a rock previously investigated to collect her next sample. A drill test, or "mini-drill," on Sol 867 (Sol = Martian day) on the rock Mojave caused the rock to fracture and ejected fresh, gray pieces of the rock. These fresh pieces give the science team an opportunity to analyze the chemistry and texture of the interior of Mojave. An image of the brushed surface of Mojave taken on Sol 809 showed this rock contains a high density of white, oblong crystals, in a gray matrix, which makes it a high priority sample for drilling (see post from 11/30/14). The team is currently looking for other locations on the same outcrop to drill.
