Results of the second attempt to drill at Lake Orcadie, sol 1983
Curiosity made two attempts to drill at Lake Orcadie, one on sol 1977 and one on sol 1983 (March 1 and 6, 2018). This is a MAHLI close-up on the second site. Using rotary-only drilling was not enough to penetrate the rock and acquire a sample.
