The Perseverance spacecraft succeeded in collecting a second sample of Martian rocks and conducted a preliminary analysis of the sample, according to the US space agency (NASA) on Friday.
On behalf of the six-wheeled spacecraft, NASA wrote that the two eyes are “likely to be volcanic, with signs of salts that could carry bubbles of ancient water.”
Project scientist Ken Farley said the samples “reveal the potential for a sustainable, habitable environment”. “It is extremely important that the water has been there for such a long time,” Farley said in a statement.
