Washington. The US space agency’s Perseverance rover is about to complete its first mission to Mars. This NASA rover collected various samples of rocks from the surface of Mars, which will be transported to Earth on the next mission. 17 months ago, the rover landed in an area called Jezero Crater. From what Percy had seen so far, the scientists confirmed that the rover was in the right place to search for life.

The rover is not looking for any living organisms today, as the harsh atmosphere of Mars makes their presence highly unlikely. Instead, the rover is looking for signs of a biology that existed billions of years ago when Jezero was filled with a lake. Scientists hope that this ancient history is now recorded in amazing rock samples that will be brought in over the next few years. David Schuster, a scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, said, “If JeZero-like conditions are found somewhere on Earth in the last 3.5 billion years, biology may have left its mark on these rocks, and we can see that.”

NASA and the European Space Agency are planning big plans to bring these samples back to Earth. The mission includes an interplanetary cargo, some helicopters, and a rocket that will bring samples back to Earth by 2033. These will also contain igneous and igneous rocks. which Percy drilled from the crater. Most of these tell the story of Jezero before the lake was filled with water. Specimens include Wildcat Ridge. This rock was formed when the soil of Lake Jezero evaporated. It was full of salt.

“All life as we know it is made of organic matter, but the important thing is that organic matter can also be made by chemical and non-living processes,” says NASA scientist Sunanda Sharma.

The robot then moves from this slope to a flat area where samples fixed in titanium tubes can be deposited on the ground. They will be properly saved for future missions to find them. However, scientists still want to collect more samples.

“Not only did we go to the right place to explore this amazing ancient atmosphere on Mars, but we sent the right spacecraft with the right science instruments,” says Lori Glaze, director of NASA’s Planetary Science Division.
