Not quite! :) Since solar conjunction puts me on the opposite side of the Sun from Earth, that will block communications for a bit. Meanwhile, I’ll keep taking some photos and science data so I can share them later.

I’ve pressed down next to the “mole” several times, and it’s hard to make this unusual soil collapse into the pit. Soon, I’ll be out of contact for a couple of weeks during solar conjunction, but my team on Earth will keep working it. Keep sending good vibes! ✨

Steady… I’m getting ready to try pushing on the ground near my heat probe. Getting close up lets me take some images and get into position. If I can collapse the hole this “mole” is in, it may help it dig down further. More on this approach:

Just like Apollo’s bold mission, I’m exploring in ways we’ve never done before. Thanks to the for recognizing our work, and to all of you who continue to follow my story. More on ’s Emmy nods:

Behold the mole! Now with the support structure out of the way, my team has a view of the mole’s position. Read more on the plans to keep moving forward (and downward):

Taking little steps - I’ve started lifting my support structure off the surface of . Once it’s out of the way, it may give my team a better view of the mole’s position.

Getting ready for a lift. 💪 Over the next few days, I will raise the mole’s support structure giving us a better look at the mole itself. The lift is a three-step process that will take about a week. Got questions? Visit:

I’m all about marsquakes, but have you heard what else might be shaking? Old and new data are leading to new discoveries about moonquakes.

Thankfully my solar panels are efficient enough to provide power for the length of my mission, even with the dust that inevitably settles on them. So while it's nice to have a dust-off now and again, I don't rely on it.

When it comes to science, I’m not afraid to get down and dirty. 💪 As you can see, a few months spent on has given me a thin coating of dust. Recently though, a bit of that dust was blown away – which is good for both solar power and science. More:

That’s one Earth year since my launch on May 5, 2018. Did you know a Mars year is nearly twice as long?

At this point, my team is confident they’re seeing a marsquake. There’s a little uncertainty because they don’t know what caused this signal, and I’ve only begun to detect seismic signals from inside the Red Planet.
