NASA rover diligently drilled this hole in a rock on Mars. Incidentally, this is Rover’s second attempt. Removed embryos will return to Earth at a later date. How to do this and why the Mars calendar is now in “190 Soul”, we say here:
We are writing the One Hundred and Ninety Soul Tomorrow. Or abbreviated: “190 Soul”. Die-Heart SciFi fans and astronauts will know that the date of the Mars calendar is so named. For simplicity, the calendar begins with “Day 1” with the landing of each task.
Then, long-term Mars astronauts and permanent settlers on Mars need to think about how they count their Mars days. Because Mars Day and Mars Year are not Earth Day and Earth Year Length. If we stay permanently, the calendar and time on our Earth cannot be transferred to Mars.
But NASA scientists and missionaries still don’t have to worry about that. In contrast, NASA’s diligent latest Mars detection of traces of early microbial life on Mars – and the extraction of many samples from the Martian surface and rocks.
No more holes in the rock!
The rover has special equipment for this purpose. It is the first planet to collect and store samples. In addition to the Martian rock, regolith (pieces of rock and dust) must be collected. As part of the later work, rock and dust samples will then be brought to Earth. Coincidentally, the US space agency NASA wants to carry out the return mission with the European space agency ESA! D.
Coincidentally, the rover was built and operated by JPL – Caltech, which manages it for NASA in Pasadena, California.
Mars with drill center
The borehole photo shown is made up of two pictures. The diligent rover drilled the hole during its second sample collection attempt. Photo taken on September 1, 2021 (Earth Calendar). Named “Rochette” by a team of mailbox-sized rock experts. Also the place of drilling is called “Montenier”. The rock was found in the Jesero gorge, on a 900-meter-long mountain pass.
Did the Mars rover cover and seal the drill model from the borehole this time? The NASA team in charge is sure about this, but wants to wait and analyze more photos.
