Nasa’s Mars rover is trending after one year

It's probably not aliens, but NASA's Mars rover has apparently found something interesting enough for the agency to make a public announcement about on Thursday.

What could've Mars rover Curiosity found that it is so intriguing?

"The media and public are invited to ask questions during a live discussion at 2 pm EDT (11:30 pm IST) Thursday, June 7 on new science results from NASA's Mars Curiosity rover".

This means no further details are to be released until the press conference, which will be hosted by Michelle Thaller, assistant director of science for communications at NASA's Planetary Science Division. "The media advisory on Thursday's press conference on "new science results" from Curiosity rover states that results are embargoed by Science Magazine - and Eigenbrode's bio is suggestive".

You can tune in to NASA's website at that time to watch the conversation live, or find livestreams on Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, YouTube, and Twitter/Periscope.

On May 20 this year, a technique called "feed extended drilling" enabled Curiosity to drill its first rock sample because October 2016 and on May 31, 2018, an additional technique called "feed extended sample transfer" trickled stone powder into the rover in a way that achieved the desired outcome.

"This was no small feat". That Parts of sample into the labs within the rover. This is "feed extended sample transfer", where CHIMRA is bypassed and the drill is suspended over the inlet to the laboratory to allow the sample to trickle down for later delivery to the analysis section.

The problem kept the robotic vehicle from extracting and analyzing Martian rock samples and severely affected the mission.

"JPL's engineers had to improvise a new way for the rover to drill rocks on Mars after a mechanical problem took the drill offline in December 2016", Erickson noted.

"The scientific team was confident that the engineers contend - are so confident that we went back to the pattern that we missed before". But this is a major milestone for the mission, said Ashwin Vasavada of JPL, the mission's project scientist.

According to Nasa, testing of both the new drilling procedures and sample delivery will continue to be refined as Curiosity's engineers research their results on Mars. The risk paid off, and now we have a key pattern that we may have never received.

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.
