NASA to bring rock samples from Mars


NASA is getting ready to undertake its’ Mars Sample Return (MSR) campaign to bring pristine samples from Mars to Earth for scientific study. On November 10, Nasa had released an independent review report indicating “The agency established the MSR Independent Review Board (IRB) to evaluate its early concepts for a groundbreaking, international partnership with ESA (European Space Agency) to return the first samples from another planet.”

The study of Mars rocks will help “answer key astrobiology questions” as scientists want to analyze samples from Mars in hopes of ascertaining whether life ever existed on the planet.
