The robber of & # 39; e NASA in Mars, Curiosity, has the successful problem at taking Mount Sharp This was judged by the satellite that ran through the red planet for many years. With this problem, scientists hope to find traces of mineral deposits that can identify their new areas with water or precursor water.
The drunk of the rover is easily traversed by the rock, in contrast to some of & # 39; a hard goal avoids it near the Vera Rubin Ridge. In fact, it was so tender that the farmer did not need to use his percussion technique, which is useful for obtaining samples of harder rock. This was the first real collection of the mission you & # 39; t just the rotation of & # 39; e bit got.

"Curiosity is about 7 years old," said Curiosity Project Manager Jim Erickson of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) of & # 39; e NASA in Pasadena, California.
"At end, entering lime-wearing units is an important milestone on our trip to Mount Sharp."
The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) of the NASA saw a strong clay "signal" here for a long time before the Curiosity came in 2012. The source of that signal could help the scientific team as a water Martianze time for this layer of Mount Sharp, 5 miles from a height, the mountain that Curiosity climbs.
Curiosity has discovered lance minerals in anger stones at a trip. These clock stones were formed as the sediments of the rivers of ancient lakes almost 3,500 million years ago inhabited. However, the water with other places on Mars, the lakes were eventually dried.
"Every layer of this mountain is a puzzle piece," said project scientist Ashwin Vasavada of JPL. "Each of them differs from other times in Mars's history, and we are there to see what our first show talks about the old environment, especially about water."
The show will give the team a starting point to think about this site with clay. She plans to drink several times over the year. This will help them understand what makes the region from a mountain behind him and a sulphate signal area at & # 39; a mountain.
