Update: Target Looks Good for Curiosity Drilling
Preparatory Drilling Test on Martian Target 'Windjana'
Preparatory Drilling Test on Martian Target 'Windjana'

NASA's Curiosity Mars rover performed a "mini-drill" operation Tuesday, April 29, on the rock target under consideration for the mission's third sample-collection drilling. This preparatory activity produced a hole about eight-tenths of an inch (2 centimeters) deep, as planned, in the target called "Windjana." The rover team plans to decide whether to proceed with deeper drilling of this rock in coming days.
