Mars Curiosity Rover Findings to Be Revealed Thursday

Nasa are set to make a major announcement on Thursday

Curiosity was sent to the Red Planet in August 2012 to study its climate and geology as well as investigate whether the planet could sustain life or has liquid water. NASA astronauts will show spectacular footage on your channel, as well as in popular social networks.

NASA will hold a press conference Thursday, June 7, 2018, to announce a new discovery on Mars from the Curiosity rover. According to a statement from the space Agency, at a press conference, experts will talk about new achievements in terms of colonization of Mars.

NASA has said the testing of the new drilling and sample delivery method will continue as the Curiosity team analyzes the results of the lab analysis.

The event will be streamed on NASA's YouTube page, Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, and Twitter's Periscope platform. Engineers at NASA spent more than a year developing a workaround drilling technique called Feed Extended Drilling, or FED, which uses the rover's robotic arm to direct and push the drill into the ground as the drill bit spins.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, the Mars Curiosity Rover, which is a big part of the MSL mission, recently snagged its first Martian rock sample in 18 months, all thanks to the new percussion drilling technique that has revived the robot's broken drill.

I'm flying. "I am going to seize the opportunity with both hands". He added: "It's 100 per cent possible this year". I don't remember feeling any better.

The space agency says it involves "new science results" but you'll have to wait until 1 p.m.

In 2016, the rover's drill encountered a crippling mechanical problem.

Both MarCO-A and B successfully completed a set of communications tests in the past couple of weeks, said John Baker, program manager for planetary SmallSats at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. But this is a major milestone for the mission, said Ashwin Vasavada of JPL, the mission's project scientist. Meanwhile, the delivery of sample into the rover's chemistry lab is also slated to occur in a few days. The inlets lead to Curiosity's onboard laboratories.

"The scientific team was confident that the engineers contend - are so confident that we went back to the pattern that we missed before".

After landing in the Gale Crater and exploring the area during the course of its two-year prime mission, it has been climbing and exploring the base of Mount Sharp since September 2014.
