At 21:20:49 UTC, Mastcam Right captured the twenty-sixth drill called “Glasgow”.
The drilling ended about half an hour before this picture was taken, so I will use it for comparisons with subsequent pictures.
As always, part of the excavated material will be analyzed inside the rover, but are also scheduled a whole series of observations and analysis of the material left on the ground, as well as the hole itself (see https://mars.nasa.gov/msl/mission-updates/8667/sols-2756-2757-presenting-our-newest-drill-sample-glasgow/).
It will be interesting to observe the evolution over time of the material extracted and the progressive degradation of the hole and the material that surrounds it.
The original image has undergone noise reduction 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.
