Curiosity rover is facing two problems: drill problem and sample processing problem. The use of CheMin and SAM instruments has been halted. See [link]

Lin Liangtai;

Very disturbing news. Hope that the Curiosity minders find a fix.

In the meantime here's a sol 1683 anaglyph that seems to be showing some moist conditions underfoot as well as some very intriguing formations that almost appear to be free standing, defying gravity.

Ignore the link in reply 126. The link at reply 127 works and shows a smooth somewhat geometrical object at the bottom centre of the image.

I could clip and magnify the object if anyone is interested.

Evolution of veins. Check "matured" veins on left side of image and faint "incipient" ones on right side.

Been out on Jury duty for a while but I do have some comments stored up.
Re: 134, Veins and same colored patches and edges:
We see a lot of this same colored material and assume it is all the same. Think of an alien rover landing in a forest meadow on Earth. It sends back pictures of all this green stuff, grass, oak leaves, pine needles, all similar with photosynthesis, but very different species and evolutions. I suspect this whitish, yellowish stuff we keep seeing may not all be the same stuff or caused by the same processes. One process for veins, another rock edges, etc.

Winston, the image you found is intriguing. Of course it could be just a rock, and that is what I think it is. We have seen a lot of interesting formations carved out of martian winds and sands and possible chemical erosive forces of which we know nothing about. Remember during the "corrugated" issue I even posted a picture of a profile of Bat Man's face carved completely naturally out of an iceberg by wind. I won't underestimate with natural force can do. The look of layered material following similar contours, even receding contours is very common in our rover returns. This rock you found is partially (or maybe mostly) buried so we don't know what the rest of what it looks like. I am not opposed to the possibility of artifacts on Mars, I have recently posted the "white card-like image" that I can't explain. However, I still haven't seen a single thing that anyone has pointed out that I could honestly call an artifact.
I am sticking to Galileo's advice to his detractors to not make up conclusions for the how inexplicable observations of the day manifested themselves and just say, "I don't know."

Here's a lot of different stuff all in one shot:

John;

Really beautiful image at reply 136. Lots went on or going on there.

Here's another crop of a sol 1702 image that shows something that might be now going on.

Note the fuzzy white ovoid objects that can be contrasted with the surrounding sand grains. Wonder what they are?

Here's a 3D -xeyed image of the area referred to above, with what might be rock varnish surfaces nearby

Winston,
This is interesting. It looks like the white stuff is on both the rock and the sand.

Here's another oft seen enigma from sol 1703;

Sol 1703, Chem Cam image showing movement of several grain particles and changes in underlying light coloured veins.

Animated GIF

movement might have been caused by laser blast effects or some natural cause.
