NASA Announces Its Plan to Sample From Mars


NASA announced its new plan to take samples from the surface of Mars. With the announced plan of NASA, a human-made vehicle from the atmosphere of Mars will have moved to Earth for the first time.

NASA, Red Planet In Mars studies he made an important plan to move on to another phase. The space agency, which wants to analyze the surface of Mars, plans to take soil samples from the surface of the Red Planet and bring them back to Earth using the Perseverance tool.

The prominent scientists of the space agency are responsible for collecting samples from the surface of Mars and bringing these samples to Earth. from science fiction movies They made a plan that seemed to skyrocket. The plan, announced in an online meeting, seems rather difficult.

Samples will be collected from the surface of Mars in the coming years


Will research on Mars in the first part of NASA's sample plan from Mars surface Perseverance It's the medium. The launch of Perseverance will be held in July despite the coronavirus epidemic. The vehicle is expected to be launched from Earth on July 12.

Perseverance is enough to fill 30 tubes from the surface of the Red Planet using the drill and earth bucket placed on it after landing on Mars. soil and stone samples Will gather. The collected samples will be stored in the Perseverance vehicle.

For the first time a man-made spacecraft will leave Mars


In the second stage of the plan, there is another spacecraft. In 2026 The second vehicle expected to be launched from the world will be on Mars in 2028. The second spacecraft will land near Perseverance in Mars' Jezero crater.

The vehicle will open its doors for Perseverance and take 30 tubes of soil samples from Perseverance. The vehicle will place the samples it takes in a smaller spacecraft that it brings with it. This little rocket is with examples itself It will launch from Mars into space. This will be the first time that a human-made spacecraft has emerged from the atmosphere of Mars.

Small rocket waiting nearby after leaving Mars to the orbit of a third spacecraft It will reach. The sampling section of this third spacecraft will take samples from the small rocket. The third spacecraft will return to Earth in 2031.

Mars Exploration Program President: Absolutely not a simple task


Commenting on NASA's plan to take samples from Mars, NASA's Mars Exploration Program President Jim Watzin said that it was the 21st century's lack of being able to take samples from Mars. Watzin, however, is also certain of this task planned to be carried out. not a simple task He explained.

Considering the difficulties existing for traveling to Mars, this plan is really quite difficult and complex looks. The Perseverance vehicle cannot return soil samples from the orbit of the Red Planet by nature. Therefore, a second spacecraft to land on the surface becomes a need. It seems impossible at this stage to design this second spacecraft to return to Earth after completing its missions on the surface. Therefore, there is a need for a third spacecraft that will return to Earth.



NASA's Mars Helicopter Ready to Depart towards the Red Planet

NASA's plan to bring soil and stone samples from Mars is quite difficult. If we even take it a step further, the plan a scene from science fiction movies looks like. However, it is still not an impossible plan.

From the spacecraft in the plan to sample the Red Planet Perseverance, really exists right now. Other vehicles are only in the lines of the plan. Development of these tools will begin in the coming years.
