MSL Has (Nearly) All Of Its Instruments Again

Mars Science Laboratory Instrumentation Announcement from Alan Stern and Jim Green, NASA Headquarters

"Dear Colleagues: We are very happy to announce that MARDI and ChemCam's cost issues have been solved and both instruments are going forward to launch on MSL. Malin Space Science Systems has agreed that there will be no additional costs to NASA for the completion of the Mars Descent Imager (MARDI). Furthermore, funds returned to the Mars Exploration Program from the unfortunate elimination of MARDI operations on Phoenix will be used to support MARDI integration on MSL."
