Questions, concerns and requests to Mission Support:

I only now notice that there is a mistake in Operations Report SOL 8, we inverted the data for Curiosity and Spirit as we confused both because we didn’t park them at their usual spot. Also we misread 215,5 for 215,9 hours for Curiosity (which we named Spirit by mistake in the report). The data in this report is all correct.
