Along with the new Mars Rover in 2020 to Mars will fly her “loose part”

In July 2020, the space Agency NASA will send to Mars mobile Autonomous new science lab. Following “opportunity” and “Curiosity” the new Rover will attempt to find answers to intriguing questions. Scientists want to learn whether the Red planet suitable for living conditions in the past and lived on it for at least the germs.

To solve these mysteries, the Mars Rover 2020 will need to obtain samples of Martian rock drilling, to carry out tests and to put them what is called “in reserve”. Astronauts of future manned missions to Mars will be able to bring them back to Earth for further analysis. In the latest news space Agency NASA announced that the Mars Rover 2020 will be part of a Martian meteorite that fell once to the Ground. It is planned to send back to Mars and be used to calibrate new high-precision laser scanner SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman and Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals).

The Agency reports that the laser can irradiate even the tiniest particles of Mars, which can potentially contain fossils of microorganisms. But in order to install a working rule, it requires the calibration target.

Mounted on a robotic arm of the Rover system SHERLOC will consist of spectrometers, lasers, and cameras, by which it will search for organics and minerals, which in the past could be exposed to water, and contact with microbial life

As a rule, for the calibration of such laser systems are used particles of stones, metal or glass, that is, samples resulting from a complex geological history. However, in the case of SHERLOC system engineers at the jet propulsion Laboratory decided to approach the problem with an innovative idea. For billions of years, Mars was bombarded by meteors, asteroids and comets, which raised the upper layers of the planet up. Some of this breed just flew into space, while others could go to other planets and including came to Earth in the form of meteorites. Some of these meteorites, scientists have discovered and explored.

Experts note that these samples are unique and will not resemble that breed, which will have to face Mars Rover in 2020. Nevertheless, they represent an ideal target for calibration.

“We study samples at such a subtle level that even small changes in temperature or even just the movement of the Rover in the sand may require new calibration. By examining how the tool will see your goal, we can understand how he would see his target on the Martian surface,” explains Luther Beagle from the jet propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which is the main specialist of the SHERLOC system.

The same instrument of the Curiosity Rover ChemCam (Chemistry and Camera) uses the technique of laser optical emission spectrometry to determine the composition of rocks and soil that it collects. Mars Rover “opportunity”, in turn, uses a compact spectrometer thermal emission (Mini-TES), which allows it to identify interesting samples and their composition from a distance.

The SHERLOC system in this regard is unique and will be the first science instrument on Mars, which will use the technology of Raman and fluorescence spectroscopy. The first feature consists in the irradiation of the test material visible, near infrared or middle ultraviolet radiation and the study of how to react to photons. Depending on how to change energy levels (decrease or, conversely, to rise), it is possible to determine the presence in the sample of certain chemical elements.

Fluorescence spectroscopy relies on the use of ultraviolet lasers that excite in carbon compounds the electrons and thereby cause them to glow, indicating the presence of life (i.e. biosignatures). In addition, SHERLOC will be to shoot samples of stones and rocks that he will study that will allow the scientific team to map the chemical signatures that will be detected on the surface of Mars.

For these purposes, the scientific team SHERLOC will need a control sample. And quite robust sample, capable of withstanding intense vibration during the launch of the Rover from Earth and landing it on the Red planet. In addition, it is necessary that the sample contained the proper chemical elements to calibrate the sensitivity SHERLOC for the presence of biosignature. To the delight of engineers and scientists from JPL, came to the aid of Johnson Space center in Houston and also London science Museum that provided the sample of the meteorite Sayḩ al Uhaymir 008 (abbreviated SaU008).

This meteorite was found in Oman in 1999 and proved to be stronger than other meteorites. It can be cut into several pieces. Thus, SaU008 will be the first Martian meteorite, which will help scientists find signs of life on this planet. Although technically it will not be the first meteorite, which is at least partially, but will return back to their home planet.

That honor belongs to Zagami meteorite, discovered in Nigeria in 1962. Part of it was sent back to Mars on Board the spacecraft Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) in 1999. This mission ended in 2007, so a piece of the meteorite is still floating in orbit of the red planet.

In addition to the SHERLOC system team of the project “Mars 2020” is going to use scientific instrument SuperCam, which will also be a study of Martian rock. Along with part of a meteorite SaU008 to Mars will also be sent samples of some advanced materials. Besides the fact that they will also be used for the calibration of SHERLOC, these materials will be tested for resistance to the Martian weather and radiation. If they are sturdy enough to survive the Martian conditions, in the future they can be used for production of space suits, gloves and helmets.

“Scientific instrument SHERLOC is both a valuable opportunity to better prepare for manned flights and to conduct fundamental scientific investigations of the Martian surface. It will allow us to test the materials that will be able to protect future astronauts who go to Mars,” says mark freis, another engineer of the SHERLOC system, as well as curator of the division for the study of extraterrestrial materials at the Johnson Space center.

With each new robotic mission to Mars, NASA and other space agencies closer to the day when people will be able to land on the Red planet.

  1. Hi, Neat post There’s a problem with your site in internet explorer, would check this… IE still is the market leader and a huge portion of people will miss your excellent writing because of this problem

  2. With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I’ve either authored myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my permission Do you know any techniques to help protect against content from being ripped off? I’d really appreciate it

  3. I do love the way you have presented this particular matter and it does indeed provide us some fodder for consideration Nevertheless, through what precisely I have observed, I only hope as the actual reviews pile on that folks remain on point and not embark on a tirade associated with some other news du jour Anyway, thank you for this excellent piece and although I do not really concur with it in totality, I regard the point of view

  4. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace It will be a false peace for a period of time You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things They have their plans set in place It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name

    Here is wisdom Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name ” (Revelation 14:9-11)

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast
