NASA Is About to Announce a Massively Exciting Mars Discovery

One of the primary tasks assigned to Curiosity since its touchdown on the Red Planet in 2012 has been to carry out extensive drilling operations with its robotic arm. NASA astronauts will show spectacular footage on your channel, as well as in popular social networks.

Nasa will have a huge announcement to make on Thursday on which it's discovered on Mars. According to a statement from the space Agency, at a press conference, experts will talk about new achievements in terms of colonization of Mars. "It represents months and months of work by our team to pull this off", said Jim Erickson, project manager of the Mars Science Laboratory mission, which is led by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

The scientist said he believes NASA's potential discoveries on Mars point towards a planet once teeming with alien life. However, what is known for sure is that NASA will not disclose anything until the so-called "Live Discussion on New Mars Science Results" which will take place on June 7th, at 2 PM EDT.

As part of the new method of transferring samples into the onboard lab, Curiosity positions its drill over two small inlets on top its deck and trickles the suitable amount of rock powder required by the lab to conduct the analysis.

The Curiosity was launched in November 2011 and landed on Mars in August the following year.

But Canada was a British colony at the time and did not become a separate nation until Confederation in 1867. The harsh words are a dramatic switch from Trudeau's earlier tactics with Trump.

However, the rover had to pass one more hurdle and move the rock powder from its drill into its internal lab.

Speculation is now rife as to what NASA could have found on Mars, with many amateur astronomers hopeful that evidence of extraterrestrial life has finally been uncovered.

The next step to making the rover fully operational again was the analysis of the said rock sample, in the form of Martian powder, inside the rover's two laboratories.

But, despite the challenges, the Curiosity scientists had no doubt that JPL engineers would work their magic and come up with a fix for the drill's problems, says Vasavada. Later this week, scientists hope to have Curiosity deliver rock samples to its chemistry lab.

"The scientific team was confident that the engineers contend - are so confident that we went back to the pattern that we missed before".
