InSight sol 50 grapple stow success After several unsuccessful attempts, InSight managed to stow its grapple by grabbing a ball on the arm on sol 50 (17 January 2019). Stowing the grapple is necessary for InSight to use the scoop on the end of the arm, and also reduces the grapple's intrusion into NASA / JPL-Caltech / Paul Hammond
