At 21:45:03 UTC the Mastcam Right photographed the last drilling attempt, this time a successful one. Two other previous attempts failed due to the extreme hardness of the rock; in this case the rock named “Stoer” turned out to be sufficiently “soft” to allow adequate drilling to collect samples for mineralogical analysis.
This photo has been processed to allow a better view of the colors, balancing the white and slightly increasing the color saturation.
