The sol documents are the Mission Manager and Documentarian reports that provide a view into science operations—insight into why and how particular observations were made. The reports have not been edited except for grammar and spelling, and to remove spacecraft and instrument sensitive materials.

Note that the sol documents are not part of the formal science archive. They are provided courtesy of the respective mission science teams who approve the content. Separate from the sol documents are mission and data set documents that are collected from archive bundles and volumes and are designed to promote understanding off the mission, spacecraft, instruments, and data formats.

Documents can be accessed from numerous places within the Notebook. The Sol summaries contain links to sol documents from the mission manager and SOWG documentarian. You can also access them from Search document search results, or your User history. Archive documents can be opened from the Resources "Mission and instrument data set documents" link, data product detail help, or your User history.
