Quotes

MAHLI Deputy Principal Investigator Aileen Yingst of the Planetary Science Institute, Tucson, Arizona, said, "One of the reasons we took these images is that they allow the ChemCam folks to compare the plume to those they imaged on Earth. Also, MAHLI has captured images of other activities of Curiosity, for documentation purposes, and this was an opportunity to document the laser in action."
And as Ravine went on to explain, "It is easier to keep the robotic arm out of MAHLI's field of view that with a typical cell phone camera because MAHLI has a narrower field of view than a typical mobile phone."
...In those places, he said, "we'll purposely slow down and pick a very careful path and limit the amount we drive, and also do wheel imaging at a higher frequency to see if we're actually incurring more damage."
Jacob Schaffner, electronics engineer and the designer of ECAM at MSSS said, "TAGCAMS is a demanding application, but one which the ECAM system has proven well-suited for, and all in a package that weighs less than 3 kilograms. We're proud to be part of this exciting mission."
