Artist Envisions Next Mars Rover

Planning for NASA’s 2020 Mars rover envisions a basic structure that capitalizes on the design and engineering work done for the NASA rover Curiosity, which landed on Mars in 2012, but with new science instruments selected through competition for accomplishing different science objectives.

Above is an artist’s conception of the Mars 2020 rover.

Mars 2020 is a mission concept that NASA announced in late 2012 to reuse the basic engineering of the Mars Science Laboratory (carried by Curiosity) to send a different rover to Mars, with new objectives and instruments, launching in 2020.

    THERE’S A GOOD EXPLANATION FOR WHY LIFE MAY EXIST ON MARS.
    In the Earth’s past there was powerful volcanic activity which could have easily spewed dirt and rocks containing microbes into outer space which not only could have eventually reached Mars but also ended up traveling in orbit through space that we now know as meteors. A Newsweek article of September 21, 1998, p.12 mentions exactly this possibility. “We think there’s about 7 million tons of earth soil sitting on Mars”, says scientist and evolutionist Kenneth Nealson. “You have to consider the possibility that if we find life on Mars, it could have come from the Earth” [Weingarten, T., Newsweek, September 21, 1998, p.12].
