NASA Mars 2020 to Explore Prime Spot on Mars For Signs of Life

Scientists manning the Mars 2020 rover have identified an ideal spot for studying indications of ancient life. The rover is set to land on February 18, 2021, at Jezero Crater. The findings, released in the journal Icarus, depict deposits of carbonates along Jezero’s rim. The site is said to have had a lake about 3.5 billion years ago. Carbonates have helped to form hardy, fossil-like structures that can survive for billions of years, such as seashells and stromatolites and coral. Stromatolites are rocks formed from microbial life along seashores billions…

NASA’s Voyager Brings Discoveries from Deep Space

Last year on the 5th of November, Voyager 2 from NASA became the second spacecraft to leave the heliosphere. This is a group of bubbles and particles from the sun that provide protection. The Voyager pushed past Pluto’s orbit being 18 billion kilometers away from the earth. At this distance, it had driven past the border into interstellar space. Today, there are five papers present that document what the researchers found from the Voyager 2. These papers are an accurate record of the five Voyager 2 operating science instruments, which…
