To deliver soil samples from the surface of the red planet, developing a complex chain of engineering solutions.
Aerospace Agency of the USA (NASA and the European space Agency (ESA) are working on an ambitious project to deliver to Earth soil and rocks from Mars. About this in his Twitter said the American partners, transfers the Internet-edition Rus.Media.
“We are ready to take the next big step in exploring the red planet – to bring soil samples from Mars to Earth” – write to NASA.
The new Rover, which the Americans hope to build for 1.5 years and run on the Red planet in the summer of 2020, will collect samples of soil and stones, tightly pack them into capsules and leave on the surface on the route.
In the next mission to Mars small Rover will select the capsule, tightly pack them in the cargo container mini-rocket, which starts from the lander to the orbit of the red planet. There is a container with samples will catch an automatic station, and then return to Earth, where their full study on the capacity of terrestrial laboratories.
ESA is developing a mechanism to throw capsules from the surface of Mars on its orbit.
