High hopes have been pinned on NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity. A lot of apprehensions were there when it was being released, as it aimed to find out chances of survival on Mars.
Now, when it has safely landed on Mars, it is getting ready for its next and real mission and that is to bring some rock pieces, so it could be known that whether Mars will be next home planet of humans. In order to do the same, scientists were of the view that they have decided to drill a Martian rock, which is 10 feet in height.
The rock, which has been chosen for the drilling was spotted nearby the landing of the rover. The rock will be drilled by the use of laser technology. It is said that laser is one of the ways to evaluate that whether or not the environment is safe for microbial life.
The crater will remain at Mars till year end, as it has a lot many functions to perform. Scientists said that the light, which will be emitted through the breakage of stone, will reveal its chemistry. "I'd probably guess this is a typical Mars basalt - basaltic rocks making up a large fraction of all the igneous rocks on Mars”, said Roger Wiens, who is the lead investigator of the rock.
