At 11:36:22 UTC the Mastcam Right has filmed a new excavation just made by the Curiosity drill.
The excavation seems to be deep enough to have produced sufficient material for mineralogical analysis; the area had been previously “cleaned” by the rotating wire brush (DRT), leaving already a glimpse of the true turquoise color of the rock, which is also confirmed by the color of the excavated material.
The original image has undergone a reduction in noise due to Jpeg compression, white balance and a slight increase in microcontrast and chromatic saturation in order to make the colors more similar to what the human eye would see.
