Cuirosity has resumed science operations after experiencing a short circuit and voltage drop.

Though the press release notes that engineers have apparently pinpointed the source of the voltage drop, it does not explain why the drop has disappeared. I wish they provided more information.

    If it was, I’d give you a lot more details.
