Feb 20th MSL Press Telecon - Drilled Rock Samples

src: nasajpl

JPL had another MSL teleconference last Wed discussing the first rock drilling tests on Mars. The location was tagged "Drill" and the tailings that it produced helped remove some of the Earth's contaminants. The rock appears to be sedimentary based on its fine grained clay and silt composition. The chemical analysis still remains to be done.
