The MSL team is celebrating the first Earth year of operations on the surface of Mars, at JPL, on NASA TV , and at participating institutions around the world. In addition, the New York Times launched their Curiosity Tracker , which makes it easy to review previous results of the mission and keep up to date on the latest activities. Planning is "restricted" this week because Mars and Earth are out of sync, with today's plan for Sol 357 including some untargeted remote sensing. ChemCam and Mastcam will make observations of the ground near the rover, and we'll see what we get.
