It is a NASA rover that will commence its mission on Mars in either July or August of 2020. Perseverance is estimated to arrive on Mars on the 18th of February year 2021. Perseverance’s purpose is to look for signs of life – both past and present. It is also expected to dig up and gather soil and rock samples for NASA to study when it comes back to Earth. However, the mission that ensures that Perseverance will return with rock and soil samples to Earth still needs to be funded.
NASA’s rover, Perseverance mission, will send off a leading and roaming research laboratory to Mar’s Jezero crater. Jezero is a home of an age-old lake and river. By then, the advanced laboratory is expected to examine rocks that were forged in liveable conditions and that may have kept signs of past microbial life. During the whole mission, Perseverance will collect and leave soil and rock samples. It will leave the samples on the surface, so in the future, when another mission is sent off by Earth, they can return with the samples.
Perseverance and NASA’s Curiosity rover hold a lot of similarities. The materials it will use so it can land on Mars are almost the same with the components used for Curiosity. However, Perseverance is packed with updates and the science materials are very different. The Planetary Society, an education and community ally for the Mastcam-Z camera system, will help produce stunning and life-like photos of the whole mission.
The Perseverance’s scientific mission falls into four different divisions: geology, astrobiology, sample gathering, and the groundwork for our exploration of Mars.
This mission should be able to define the process that forged and adapted the geologic track record within a field examination on an area on Mars. This is then chosen for an astro biologically-relevant age-old environment and geologic diversity.
This mission should be able to examine, determine, and study the past and present proof of Mar’s sustainability. This launch should be able to give our researchers and scientists a better view of Mars. Perseverance should also show samples of soils and rocks that we can use for future investigations and studies. This rover is also expected to perform astro biologically-relevant steps to determine the potential life preservation percentage Mars has.
