After failing to pass SRAP (the process that makes sure the rover is safe to use its arm) on the previous sol (see Sol 2011 for details), we finished up the set of observations possible at this location. Since Curiosity didn't move from its parking spot on Sol 2011, that also means there were no opportunities to conduct contact science in today's plan.
