The next rover will go to krater b & # 39; diameter & # 39; 45 km, called Jezero, which will collect samples & # 39; rock and soil
NASA spacecraft will look for clues about whether there ever was life on Mars by analyzing the rock & # 39; ancient lake and delta, two geographic features that can preserve signs of & # 39; ancient organisms, the US space agency said.
"The delta is extremely good at preserving bijrofirma, is living specimens"
NASA has been debate for five years on the best place to download its spacecraft, which will travel to space in & # 39; July 2020.
After studying more than sixty different location in & # 39; Mars, NASA announced that its spacecraft – designed spacecraft to move on the surface of the Earth – going to krater of & # 39; 45 km b & # 39, diameter, called Jezero, which will collect samples of rock and earth
F & # 39; conference, the scientist Ken Farley, who works for 2020 Mars project Laboratory & # 39; Propulsion of Jet (JPL) of NASA, explained that the krater is the first home behin 39; river, so it can & # 39; a & # 39; organic molecules and microbes.
"It is very attractive from a scientific point of view. Firstly, the lakes on Earth are places suitable for life and inevitably something of life in them. The second thing is that the delta is extremely good at preserving the bijoformi, namely samples of life ", explained Farley.
Moreover, the ancient lake, which was 250 meters deep, has five different types of & # 39; rock by clay and rocks carbonate, which can preserve signals on ancient organisms, a volcanic rock, which could offer clues on the volcanic evolution & # 39; Mars.
The goal, Farley said, is to first find out x & # 39; was the environment on the red planet and then try to understand x & # 39; type & # 39; & # 39 have life; resides.
The results of & # 39; former special missions show that Mars was not always red desert, but had a great volcanic activity (as demonstrated kraters) and, moreover, been able to maintain liquid water on the surface, means could be counted b & # 39; good atmosphere to life.
NASA began in 2012 program aims to launch vehicle & # 39; exploration & # 39; Mars in 2020.
