RMI of ancient cracks in the mudstone surface

I am Geo-Min Science theme lead for todays plan.  As usual after 4 years of operations we are doing 3 sols of planning at one go. The plan will actually be executed on Mars in about a week's time.

We have recently identified some extraordinary cracking patterns in the mudstone. We hope to put APXS and the ChemCam laser on them to investigate further.
