In this picture taken by the Instrument Deployment Camera (IDC) at 16:02:00 LMST, we can see the robotic arm of InSight raised to allow a better analysis of the situation.
A couple of days ago it was tried to lift the robotic arm only a few millimeters to verify the stability of MOLE, in order to avoid that it could exit the hole and fall inexorably lying on the ground.
I think we will have to wait a bit before seeing what will be the next move to try again to bury MOLE; hopes are now hanging by a thread, but anyway it’s still early to give up.
This photo has been processed to allow a better view of the colors, balancing the white and slightly increasing the microcontrast and color saturation.
