Women's Curiosity Day: Role Models for Rover Operations


This figure shows the location of the ten science instruments on the rover.

TELLING THE ROVER HOW TO USE ITS SCIENCE INSTRUMENTS

Based on rover data received during downlink, these team members review and assess how each of Curiosity's science instruments are performing. They also review the command sequences (the order of instructions) that will be sent to the rover during uplink.
