NASA: what is known about the “hair” found by the Perseverance rover on Mars

What happened to the Perseverance rover? In its collection of samples on Mars, the robot drew the attention of NASA scientists to an element that was found in its cartridge. This led to an immediate investigation into the nature and origin of what was called “hair”.

It was reported through mission blog project manager NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), Art Thompson. Its description indicates that this element was identified by working modality what the team is doing.

When collecting samples, photographs of all parts of the system were taken. Therefore, upon receipt of materials No. 12, thread was detected in one of the areas of the robotwhich prompted an immediate investigation into the incident.

In this way, researchers who follow in the footsteps perseverance it will take several days to analyze the sample, as they did on previous occasions, to protect martian material be used as the main source of research in March.

AT NASA will carefully consider the origin of the “hair” found in the drill chuck of the Perseverance roverto see if it’s an external element or if it’s part of a robot sent to sample Mars.

Although at the moment there were only speculations, Thompson also clarified that it cannot be ruled out that they are part of Perseverance. after landing on February 18, 2021. At this stage of the process, there are always parts that have fulfilled their function.

Another detail that caught the attention of the mission is that in addition to the filamentAnother small object found in the stormwhich will also be analyzed by a team on Earth to determine its origin.

Rover perseverancewho landed on March a year and a half ago, he had already collected 11 rock samples. But bringing them back to Earth so they can be studied in detail for traces of ancient life is proving to be a complex task that requires several steps.

Still NASA he planned to send another rover to Mars, which would collect the samples collected by Perseverance and send them to the lander. This module, in turn, was supposed to carry a mini-rocket, ready to launch samples into the orbit of the red planet in 2031.
