We're almost there! FIDO got even closer to the science-rich Kaibab overhang today. It is now in position to deploy its arm and begin getting data. The overhang is only about as tall as FIDO (one meter), but still posed quite a challenge to the team as they commanded the rover to the exact point. During the drive to Kaibab, FIDO also did some Infrared Point Spectrometer (IPS) tests and took various Pan Cams.
