NASA ‘Perseverance rover’ has successfully collected bemused first pair of stone chunk samples from Mars. NASA is in pursuit of collecting mystified selections from Mars. They collected its first Stone sample on September 6 called “Montdenier,” after successfully obtaining its first sample, the rover team collected a second cluster sample on September 8 named “Montagnac,” from the same rock. Therefore the team is looking for a place to drill a third rock sample from the elemental core. This has been leading the way for the human expedition of the Red Planet.
“It looks like our first rocks reveal a potentially habitable sustained environment,” said Ken, project scientist for the mission, which is led by NASA’s. “It’s a big deal that the water was there a long time.”
The analyzing team of NASA is working on the rock which two stone samples were obtained from the Perseverance rover the team meticulously. The stones were stored in a titanium tube. The team was put in an utter scrutinized study to examine the collected rock samples. The study would help the section to make a judgment on the past activity on the vast land. The land was marked with volcanic eruption and time-lapse of persistent water.
The ”perseverance rover” has been built with crucial specifications to drill and collect samples from the elemental core to secure future experimentation. It has a titanium tube embedded in it to store the core sample and preserve it. And then, the titanium tube will be installed in various regions of Mars for future joint missions NASA and ESA. After a triumph, NASA is keenly looking for a third sample collection. The team extended their report by saying the third assemblage will occur in South Séítah, which is precisely 200 meters away from the current core location.
The new area South Séítah will provide NASA an older rock core samples. According to few reports, NASA will set its perseverance Rover to Stationary mode (fixed in a particular station) in October for few weeks to prevent contact with the sun. This is a prevention measure taken by the NASA team to protect Rover from the sun rays.
A primary objective for perseverance’s mission is astrobiology. It means the sign of ancient microbial life. The Rover will classify Mars geology and climate change activities.
