Mars Curiosity's Labs Are Back in Action

Mars Curiosity's Labs Are Back in Action

NASA has also added that "the results are embargoed by the journal Science until then", which confirmes the rumors that NASA doesn't want to reveal anything before Thursday.

This means no further details are to be released until the press conference, which will be hosted by Michelle Thaller, assistant director of science for communications at NASA's Planetary Science Division.

It is not a shocker that Curiosity has again found something interesting on Mars but the NASA's secrecy about it raised some questions.

Mars rover is trending after one year: The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (Nasa)'s Curiosity rover is up to some folks.

The internet has a long-standing habit of hyping up Nasa announcements to the point of ridiculousness.

Its likely to relate to the findings of the Curiosity Rover, which has been drilling into rocks on the Red Planet in a quest to find traces of alien life. NASA will broadcast the discussion on its NASA TV channel, as well as in Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, Youtube and Twitter.

Testing of the brand new drilling process and sample delivery will continue to be refined as Curiosity's engineers study their results from Mars.

The sample transfer technique enables Curiosity to place its drill over two small inlets in addition to the rover's deck. Namely, NASA reprogrammed the rover to use its robotic arms as a driller in order to restart the examinations of the Mars' rocks.

"It was a feat, it represents months and months of work our team".

However, all the hints indicate towards a correlation between the restart of Curiosity Rover's drilling experiments and this "new science results". But this is a major milestone for the mission, said Ashwin Vasavada of JPL, the mission's project scientist.

"The science team was convinced that the engineers could deliver-so Convinced we drove back into some website that we overlooked drilling ahead". "The gambit paid off, and we now have a key sample we might have never gotten". "It is rather impressive to have a moment such as this, five years to the assignment".

Engineers in Nasa had to improvise a brand new method for the rover to drill rocks on Mars following a mechanical problem took the drill offline at December 2016.
