NASA’s Curiosity rover drills hole into 3rd Martian rock for sample test
Zee Media Bureau
London: Last week NASA’s Curiosity Rover conducted a successful test bore into a sandstone slab at “Kimberley”. This week it decided to go for a deep drill excursion into the Martian rock target called “Windjama.
Curiosity rover drilled a hole in a Martian rock with the intention of taking a powdered sample for its onboard laboratories to study, according to reports. It`s been around 12 months since the power tool was last utilized for this plan.
A neat hole can clearly be spotted in the rock " Windjana" as evident from the downlinked pictures from the planet.
The scientists hope that this sandstone can yield insights on the geochemical processes that have helped shape the landscape at the bottom of Mars` Gale Crater.
