NASA's Rover Will Collect Samples on Mars

"NASA says it's Perseverance Rover is getting ready to take its first sample of rock from Mars. The robot landed on the Red Planet in February. The hope is that it will unearth evidence of potential primitive life. Marc Labelle explains. NASA suspects an empty lake in the crater where the rover rests may have been replenished and drained with water several times. They still don't know if the soil they hope to dig up there is sedimentary or volcanic as they search for microbial life. Their perseverance. Rover has been busy practicing probing Martian soil samples with its robotic arm to repeat a moment space scientists compare to Neil Armstrong's bagging of Moon dust 52 years ago. Mark Lobel

"So perseverance. What is it. It is a next upgraded version of curiosity rover. It's built on very much the same hardware plan but as happens when you get a few years. From one designed upgraded the systems and part of upgraded. The systems meant it has a belly full of crazy robotics and electronics. And they're going to use that crazy belly to gather up samples of rock. It also is carrying the first ever microphone on mars which people are far more excited about than i ever dreamed of like me. Well yeah it. It's still caught me by surprise. And they have an experiment for creating oxygen. They have a laser and they are putting rocks. Left and right and then of course. There's little ingenuity helicopter. Alright so then like compare and contrast like if we had perseverance and curiosity side by side and we were looking at them trying to spot the differences there the same size right same size and the roughly built on the same chassis. yes okay. The heads look very similar. It's when you start looking at the arms in the underbelly that everything radically changes. It's when you look at the underbelly. An armed that everything radically changed so arm does not have the little divet scraping machine that they have on curiosity that they've been using to up to rocks and remove a layer of weathered rock to see what's underneath instead. The arm has sherlock which is an ultraviolet violet spectrometer and it has a laser and they are literally zadran rocks and listening to hear how the zap sounds and using that sound getting an assessment of the density and other characters things of the rocks. This this is not something i imagine. This is the moral equivalent of doing science by knocking on wood except thursdays outing rocks.

They're still a lot of arguments on when we go to different formations for example, the Strategy Pool, formation and Australia. There's evidence of three point five billion year, old life, and some other places, and there's a lot of scientific. Debate on whether or not these are really bio signatures, or whether they weren't created by life or not, and we know life exists on the earth. We don't know that about Mars, so we continue to say potential bio signatures because we WANNA. Make sure that. If we see something we study it and we know that it basically biotic nature, and so we want to go seek things that we look at. We go well. That's really fascinating. It's very difficult to make that. Without bio was bunks without microbes doing the work, but spring that sample back to earth and and. Analyze it in a laboratory and analyze it with much with as many instruments, as we possibly can determine whether or not, that was alive and get scientific consensus on that. Salah. Yeah, I was GONNA I was GONNA ask. I was going to follow up with some of the instruments on board. Perseverance on board perseverance, what kinds of instruments to to look for some of these bio signatures? So. We have a few. We have a few instruments on perseverance that Not necessarily doing the the biology part of it, but the potential biases detection part of it but they're doing very valuable scientific research because before you need to understand the geology of the site. You need to understand the chemistry the site. Do you need to understand everything about it? Understand the bigger picture and so we have a few. We have the one instrument. is with AKS, which isn't ground penetrating radar. It will let us know what's in the subsurface. So that'll give us an idea of what this the history of this particular site was..

It's a very nerve wracking because be working hardware for four years and you put it through A. Task and it doesn't function the way it's supposed to function and all of a sudden. You're like we're back. We're back at square one, but you know Oh God. How do I fix this? So, so we're recording this in middle of June now perseverance. I'm guessing at this point made it through. The ringer survived all the all the tests. Everything seems to survive. did the thermal test here we have you know these things go into big giant chambers. We'd take them. We'd take the whole thing down minus a hundred degrees. We pump all the atmosphere out. We see what's going to happen. We tested on different rocks and things like that and everything past it's at the Cape Right now it's all it should be all buttoned up here shortly and getting ready to put on the rocket to be launched and a very exciting time, but I you know, we talk about the seven minutes of terror, and it's funny 'cause when we were landing opportunity, I mean excuse me sorry. One of the other engineers looked at me and said you know I've been working on curiosity for seven years, so they really do seven years of terror i. don't believe that the video would be all that interesting. Just sitting around just panicking of all the things that could go wrong and everything. We think about everything that could go wrong. for multiple times, so yeah that'd be. Very interesting. So you talked about? You talked about designing it. You know when you're talking about mission duration, you know you talked about the Mars Exploration Rovers being designed for ninety days. I think it was like You know designing three times. The I forget the freezing exactly what you said but I know the perseverance is tested for one Martian. Year six hundred and eighty seven earth days. Does that mean you tested it to make sure that is going to survive three hundred eighty seven days at a minimum. It's now so if it's six hundred. Ninety days..

"Very very dusty place. It's very. There's stuff gets into everything. You can see pictures of curiosity now. I have one of my office where there's dust just littered across the duck everything there. It's also got very low atmospheric pressure, which which adds some complexity to things like high-voltage, and and and and other things that we try to do so what happens, is you you make the hardware you put it in through these tests that the hardware has to go through these aerial cycles basically zero. From zero to minus one hundred zero minus one hundred. That's gotTA. Go through three thousand cycles of that. and. It's got to work, and it's got to work every single time. and. it's everything has to, and everything is tested under the relevant Martian conditions. It's principal here called testers, you fly. And so We've tested Our our our hardware down to minus a hundred and. Ten degrees I e lockhart down to minus one hundred ten degrees. We've tested up to fifty degrees. C., because when it's flying in space, and it's flying in that that hitting the back show it does get, it gets much hotter than never going to surface, but you have to make sure that the instrument can survive those conditions as well so it's test. Test Test Test to make sure that you've you take everything that Mars can pro at you and continue to make sure that everything works out way. it also has to undergo shock and vibe that the launch conditions. Everything gets shaken up during launch. There's a shock when it hits the atmosphere, so everything gets really hit hard with a shock and every all. All hardware has to work through. All of those conditions and You can continue to test, and you just been you know you go into test, and you just praying and pray, and you pray and it's. It's funny. 'cause then sometimes when things don't work, you have to figure the to go back and figure out why it didn't work whether it was A. A problem with the test setup whether it was a problem with the test design, but there was a problem with the hardware. And then you've got to redesign the hardware to make sure that it works in those particular tests and it's It's nerve wracking. It's a very nerve wracking because be working hardware for four years and you put it through A. Task and it doesn't function the way it's supposed to function and all of a sudden.

Right now it's all it should be all buttoned up here shortly and getting ready to put on the rocket to be launched a very exciting time but I. You know we talk about the seven minutes of terror, and it's funny. 'cause when we were landing opportunity I, mean excuse me sorry. One of the other engineers looked at me and said you know I've been working on curiosity for seven years, so they really do seven years of terror i. don't believe that the video would be all that interesting. Just sitting around just panicking all things that could go wrong and everything. We think about everything that could go wrong. for multiple times, so yeah that'd be. Very interesting. So you talked about? You talked about designing it. You know when you're talking about mission duration. You know you talked about the Mars exploration. Rovers being designed for ninety days I think it was like you know designing three times. The I forget the freezing exactly what you said, but I know. The perseverance is tested for one Martian year six hundred and eighty seven earth days. Does that mean you tested it to make sure that is going to survive three hundred eighty seven days at a minimum. It's now so if it's six hundred. Ninety days we tested for two hundred and seventy days. Or perseverance. It was opposed to seven hundred days, so we tested for twenty one hundred days. A lot of testing yeah. Testing For sure a lot of worries, because every single one of those testing cycles you're you're worried about what's. What's going to happen But it's it's good engineering, and it's very good practices. Not Everything can be tested that way because there are some things that are are considered consumables. So you have to really figure out what's going on and make sure that you've. You've thought of everything in those, and then you get waivers and get reviewed that you take a really fine luck and anything that doesn't get tested for the twenty one hundred days. My partner is. Very, cool, so before we go into the science I did WANNA tackle the mission profile here for a second right now. We're in the middle of June at scheduled for July seventeenth launch date. I know that there are constraints with making sure that Earth and Mars are aligned, so July seventeenth I'm. was picked for a very specific reason. It is so actually I. Think I think as of this morning the earliest launches now. The twentieth we've, we've slipped three as. An issue at the Cape. However yeah, so what happens is that Mars and earth are are continuing moving, and so what you're doing is you're watching from Earth to Mars. They have to be in the right. State in the in the. In their work, that's you can only launch the Mars about every twenty six months, so there's about A. Three to four week period where that launch window opens depending on where exactly they are in the orbits, and so you launch, and you're you're the spacecraft itself. Basically, Mars get to the same point at the same time. 'CAUSE IT takes seven months for it to seventy nine months hit. There so, Marzan, that's so. There's a launch window where it opens up as you on the seventeenth of June July and ends like the first week in August. We are going to land however at the at on February eighteenth at a at a certain time. And you can plan that exactly and you need to plan that exactly 'cause. There's a lot of orbital assets Mars reconnaissance orbiter tomorrow. Mars Odyssey still Maven that will be taking measurements as the the space is going in, and you need all of those orbital assets to be in the correct spot at the correct time, so you know exactly when it's going to land, but you get like three to four weeks of when it can possibly launch. Got It okay, so that's we're still within the window. We've at this time. We've slipped to the twentieth by. We're still within that window. It is you you mentioned the Cape. We are launching from Cape, Canaveral. Air Force Station Down in Florida. It's going to be launching on you L.. A. Atlas five five forty one rocket. It is going to be well actually before I get to the landing site I did want to ask about the profile of how it gets there I'm I. Don't know if it does. couple orbits around the Earth before a Trans Mars injection, or if there's anything fancy in between. Now, it's direct. It's a direct injection. Type two type three orbit it just goes straight out from the earth straight into.

Do is completely instrumented, and so understands the nature of the Martian atmosphere better, and by that we can design better landing systems. I think there's probably an upper limit to how much this manning system can land. In fact I know there is because I've read some of the mission architectures for potential humans to tomorrow's, and so they all have different landing systems associated with the giving this gives us information on. On like that. Atmosphere is like in the higher in the higher above the surface, and so we can get take that information and design better systems, and that's that's the important part of the system for for eventual humans to Mars. I don't know whether or not the skills to to four human activities, and that's a lot more mass. Yeah, no, yes, sure not necessarily designed by understanding what the environment is that you're dealing with? That's got. That's got to help for sure.

A lot of it is familiar to me, but for perseverance, specifically, some of the development of testing of some of those things to make sure perseverance is going to survive the journey. Yeah testing is is We joke all the time that. Testing is always nerve wracking because you've. Spent four years building something, and then all of a sudden you go into tested, and you just hope that it works the way everything is supposed to work, because it's really puts the. You. Put the needle to the the needles in the test. This better actors better description that not. So what happens is that we had to test everything and so If you remember back to when it's talking about what's the Mars exploration rovers, everybody talks about the fact that we're only supposed to exist for ninety days, but really what that means is that all of the instruments and all of the hardware was or or tested out about three times life, so we test, we test retest and we test for three times what the eventual life is going to be! We don't testing till they die testings to make sure that they work for three times. The nominal lifetime is. And what that means is that Mars is a very difficult place Mars every day on Mars temperature swings, or about one hundred degrees. Centigrade which is about two hundred degrees Fahrenheit, so imagine going from. Ice Freezing to boiling freezing to boiling freezing the boiling every single day and the hardware has to work through those environments..

The email system operates you go in seventeen about seventeen thousand miles an hour when you get the top of the atmosphere and seven minutes later, you've got to be going zero miles an hour. you? There's a great video online of describing this call. Seven minutes of terror that describes the. Deal system and it's all automated and it happens. All we turn it on and we. We let it go. And we find out whether or not we landed or not. But it's the sky, Crane Sky Crane configuration. We hit the top of the atmosphere going seventeen thousand miles an hour, and there's heat shield that heat shield dissipate in the atmosphere. It slows down to Sure. What the miles an hour is, but we then lose the heat shield and we opened up the parachute. That's a supersonic parachute has a very large parachute, which then dumps more energy. We slow down even further, but we get to about a couple of kilometers above the surface, and then we're on retro rockets landing system itself takes over this active landing system in the sky crane itself. What it's kind of like a the landing system is all over the rover, and the basically where we lower to the ground by a rope, and then rover hits the ground and moves off on its own power It's really cool to watch really cool video to To see how it all works I loved that video seven minutes of terror, especially back in two thousand twelve, when I was following curiosity, I watched that over and over and over it was fascinating. Is this is this landing system when you're describing perseverance, are there elements of this because I know? When I was reading the description of perseverance and some of its objectives, one of the things was improving the techniques for landing. Is this one of those things that might actually help us? The landing of perseverance might actually help us understand how eventually to land humans on Mars. That question is I? Don't really know I do know what it what it does.

"Piece of equipment so you learning along the way and you keep becoming more and more sophisticated. I think NFL was the most complicated mission ever flown robotic mission ever flown and perseverance is more complicated than that, so we keep adding and he'd getting better. which is what we we tend to want to do is. Always do always pushed the envelope. That's incredible. Yeah, there's been a lot of strides and I totally see the logic of wanting to. You it's. It's the ultimate test, right? Those wheels on on Mars is the ultimate test for the wheels. You'll learn from them. And you make the better for the next for the next mission. It's perfect talk about some of the just general design features of I. Guess a little bit of curiosity, a little bit of perseverance things things that make this the the right. Type of rover I know I know just. Curiosity in two thousand twelve with landing, it was such a big event for me and I was really fascinated by the wheels, and just this tradeoff of Torque and speed, and and wanting to get over some of those rocks and stuff like so so some of those engineering design elements of how how perseverance will do the roving on on Mars. So the way perseverance is going to do it as much like curiosity did with some. added. Exceptions which not. Hundred percent sure are actually going to work, not work, but the IBM planet because working is a different. Concept, We have a large feels, and what the what larger wheels on enable you to do is not worry about the number of. Really reduces the number of hazards at a particular site as you get closer to the ground, bigger rocks become problematic if anybody's ever driven A. Jeep versus a car. That's very low to the ground. You'll know that if you go over a speed bump. You kinda sometimes. Scrape gets around by having the bigger wheels that. You're able to go over a lot more on those particular rocks and not have to worry about them. Less of a problem we've learned on Cherry Ossie, we had problems. DOT DINGO gap of getting over sand getting up over a sand patch, so we kind of understand that we can't get over that. Those wheels We learned how to drive backwards to save wheels on that that we will learn on curiosity. Excuse me. Perseverance the the wheels themselves. We go actually very relatively slow I. Don't not sure what the speed limit is but we ended up going on. Eighty to one hundred meters a day as an average as a good day for Terry Acidy, and hopefully we'll be able to push that a little bit on perseverance We have a proven land landing system on perseverance We're using the sky crane exact same design as we used on curiosity.

And I was part of the We caught ourselves as surface sampling system scientists and what we did is we try to figure out whether it was possible to drill on Mars? And what? What type of materials could you drill into? Could you not trewin sue? Because this is all stuff we've done very time and that it's really scary because you send something to Mars. If it breaks, it breaks you. There's no way to six. There's nobody tape duct tape with the spacecraft joke about all the time that could just basically take themselves off. Fix the hardware and and just go back on you, you're you're stuck with what you have, and so you really really trying to figure things out along the way.

"Were in nature. So that there was liquid water at both those landing sites at some time in the past, and that's important, because now we know that Mars you know we, we can see different places on Mars. It all had these same acreage processes associated with. we sent Mars reconnaissance orbiter in two thousand five that was taking high resolution images of the planet and did. Some spectroscopy the planet as well so we can understand from war bit. Where different mineral deposits were We've sent Maven that was a scout mission and inside. They were to smaller class. Missions to look for whether Mars had earthquakes that was insight may even look at look was looking at the atmosphere China. Understand what happened the atmosphere. We know Mars atmosphere now does can't support liquid water on the surface. But we know in the past had liquid water on the surface, so what Maven did was even trying to figure out what happened to that. Messier and what were the processes that move forward? With that, which was really cool? I, think curiosity, which was the biggest rebel sent the Danes Thousand and landed in two thousand twelve. And that really was looking at chemistry, and looking for organic molecules, and trying to determine whether the planet was habitable in the House and by that we mean whether or not the their conditions existed on the surface of Mars that life as we know, it could exist. and curiosity has found that gale crater and that's That's pretty much the history, so that leaves us to perseverance which is going to go to. basically look for potential bio signatures and try to. Cash samples to return to. To. Later on. Yeah, that's a that's a huge milestone of and the difference with with perseverance you went through this beautiful history of all these different rovers and landers and orbiters I mean we've been. We've been sending all these crazy instruments to really as you said that this is the most study in other than other than Earth, and you can see why I mean. We're looking at all these different elements that are really diving deep into the history. How this House plan at work. What's on? The history of it it's it's absolutely fascinating, and it sounds like it's sounds like perseverance is just taking those next steps. If, you look if there is a there has been a process for the whole program, right? It's not just let's go to biology mission in a very complicated biology mission, but it's we're gonNA build walks. We're GONNA. Understand this understand that I don't understand you. Know Geology than chemistry than understand the internal dynamics of the planet understand the history of the planet, and we build along the way, so it's a and and we look at difference different. Sites along the way as well so what happens is is that you? You start adding all of these things together, and then what you're left with is you're left with a really interesting the history of the planet, and a better understanding of the planet. Wonderful well, let's dive into perseverance because. You ended when you were going through this history of the different orders Lynch Rovers. All those you talked about curiosity I understand. A lot of perseverance is modeled after curiosity in fact, if you look at pictures of the two of them, they very similar. They do NFL. Positi. is grover. That's about nine hundred kilograms. It's about the size of mini Cooper, it has a scientific payload That's very complex. perseverance is more complex than Aussie in several ways, but is built on this. The nuts and bolts and skeletons are. The same from perseverance as they are. So Whenever we go do mission. We have to learn from scratch how to do a lot of things for example You know the wheels how the wheels work how tolls interact how the robotic arm interacts so what we did with with perseverance is we took all of this stuff? We learned from MSL and all this stuff we learned from her, and and added to it to make them more complex mission, but we use the same type of of skeleton to actually do this, so from the outside it looks the same has six wheels. The wheels are very large sixty five centimetres in diameter. It has a robotic arm. has amassed they kind of the masks looks Kinda, the same a lot of arm kind of looks the same, except it's much more complicated, so our robotic arm perseverance is bigger than the robotic arm, and it's much more capable than robotic arm on MSL, but we had learned how to do all of that with MSL, so that we can do go to the next step and learn on what we're doing. Perseverance, the other thing perseverance has missile did not have. Is. Where the capability of cashing samples, so the body aren't has a core on it, and that core will go out to different spots that we decided to pick depending on the diversity of sites and things like that, and how much scientifically interesting the sample has for sample is and will basically be able to capture some of that sample. Put it into to seal that to Bob. and then basically go back and pick it up later with a different mission, and so perseverance does the science MIASMA? Sherlock picks all super. Cam Bass Cam. She Rim fax. Moxie and and that we all are doing great science. characterized the sample, and then we're going to be able to bring that sample back. So that's the next step in Mars exploration is the sample return aspect of this particular mission. That's perfect. That's one of the new objective as of perseverance bottom hearing with this with the skeleton, the framework that you were talking about it sounds like it's just A. Curiosity beyond its own. Admissions was prove that the hardware was it had to do with a sense of that this technology the way that you rove across the surface of Mars was proven, and then you just take the different scientific instruments and objectives you WanNa do and Rove across the Martian surface. Just doing meeting, those objectives says at the idea. That is the idea and what happens is is that you have It's a learning process the entire way You had to learn to walk before you could run into run before you could fly and that's exactly what we're doing here. the I used to work on on curiousity, and I was part of the We caught ourselves as surface sampling system scientists and what we did is we try to figure out whether it was possible to drill on Mars? And what? What type of materials could you drill into? Could you not trewin sue? Because this is all stuff we've done already time and that it's really scary because you send something to Mars. If it breaks, it breaks you. There's no way to fix it. There's nobody tape duct tape with the spacecraft joke about all the time they could just basically take themselves off the hardware, and and just go back on you, you're you're stuck with what you have, and so you really really trying to figure things out along the way. And by learning all of these things learning how the rover operates saw in this particular environment of San, environment versus a rock environment. Now we understand all of that. We can design things better. One of the things that MSL did do is we had a wheel issue it a certain point. We realized that the wheels degrading faster than they were designed to, so we learned from that. That and perseverance has a new set of wheels. and you could only do that by doing the seats you the testing of that we understood how robotic arm robotic arm placement can be. So how do we? How do we put a drill down? Whether the drill interacts with the rest of over in a bad way, so now we can do a core which is a.

"Were in nature. So that there was liquid water at both those landing sites at some time in the past, and that's important, because now we know that Mars you know we, we can see different places on Mars. It all had these same acquiesce processes associated with. we sent Mars reconnaissance orbiter in two thousand five that was taking high high resolution images of the planet, and did some spectroscopy the planet as well so we can understand from war bit. Where different mineral deposits were We've sent Maven that was a scout mission and inside they were to smaller class. Missions to look for whether Mars had earthquakes that was insight may even look at look was looking at the atmosphere China. Understand what happened to the atmosphere. We know Mars atmosphere now does can't support liquid water on the surface. But we know in the past had liquid water on the surface, so what Maven did was even trying to figure out what happened to that Messier and what were the processes that move forward? With that, which was really cool, I think curiosity, which was the biggest rubber we'd sent. The Danes thousand landed in two thousand twelve. And that really was looking at chemistry, and looking for organic molecules, and trying to determine whether the planet was habitable in the House, and by that we mean whether or not the their conditions existed on the surface of Mars that life as we know, it could exist. and curiosity has found that gale crater and that's That's pretty much the history, so that leaves us to perseverance which is going to go to. basically look for potential bio signatures and try to. Cash samples to return to. To. Later on. Yeah, that's a that's a huge milestone of and the difference with with perseverance you went through this beautiful history of all these different rovers and landers and orbiters. I mean we've been. We've been sending all these crazy instruments to really as you said that this is the most study in other than other than Earth, and you can see why I mean. We're looking at all these different elements that are really diving deep into the history. How this House plan at work? What's on? The history of it it's it's absolutely fascinating, and it sounds like it's sounds like perseverance is just taking those.

NASA is paving the way towards a sustainable presence on the moon and onto Mars. Though humans have never set foot on the Red Planet with been there many times most recently, the Mars insight lander that went to the surface of Mars to understand the planet's quote, unquote vital signs, it's seismology and heat flow, and whether the planet's core is solid or liquid before that the curiosity rover landed on Mars to explore the surface for chemical and mineral evidence of past habitable environments on Mars, searching for environments where microbes could have survived billions of years ago or these habitable environments I remember watching curiosity's landing live and man what a throw! Nastase Jet Propulsion Laboratory is sending a new rover to Mars. It looks a lot like curiosity, but with a whole new suite of incredible instruments, many of which are indirect preparation for human exploration on Mars. We're talking instruments to test the production of oxygen from the Martian atmosphere identifying valuable resources such as subsurface water, improving landing techniques and characterizing Martian weather in a way that could help future astronauts that are living and working in the environment. So here to go into detail on this new Mars twenty twenty. Rover called perseverance is Luther Beagle deputy division manager for science at NASA's jet. Propulsion Laboratory Luther is also the principal investigator of the Sherlock Instrument, one of the scientific instruments on perseverance.

"Listen to and follow longshots on the iheartradio, APP apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts. The last of the major experiments aboard the perseverance is the Mars Oxygen Institute Resource Utilization Experiment or Moxie. What a great acronym! Now, this experiment will attempt to generate oxygen from the carbon dioxide. That's in Marzieh's atmosphere. See here on Earth Co two makes about point zero four percent of our atmosphere, and that's it and honestly that's enough. Co Two is a greenhouse gas. In fact out of all the greenhouse gases that humans release in our atmosphere co two makes up eighty one point three percent of them, so a little co two can go a long way when it comes to the greenhouse effect, but Mars is. Atmosphere is a totally different story. They're Co. two is a major player. It makes up ninety five point thirty two percent. PERCENT OF MARS atmosphere. Oxygen by contrast makes tiny point one three percent of Mars atmosphere here on earth. It's twenty one percent of our atmosphere now it's incredibly obvious that we humans need oxygen, and it stands to reason that would be way better if we could produce the oxygen. We need on Mars while you know. We're actually on Mars as opposed to bringing everything with US everything we decided we'd need to bring. We have to launch off the earth and launching stuff is expensive, and it's risky, so it would be better if we could create all the stuff we need while we're already on Mars. Of that besides breathing, we need oxygen as a component for rocket fuel, so using the resources of Mars to create fuel would be a huge deal again. We wouldn't have to send our return trips. Worth of fuel out on the launch. That would be enormous now. moxie isn't going to tariff form Mars. It's a small scale experiment more like a proof of concept it will take co two from Mars atmosphere and converted into. And carbon monoxide through an electrochemical process so moxie polls in air from the environment. It'll pass that air through a filter and then pressurize the co two, so that's approximately one atmosphere in pressure that is one earth atmosphere in pressure, which is much greater pressure than what you would find in Mars zone atmosphere, the Co two then goes to a solid oxide, electrolysers or s, O x. e, the electrochemical process does the separating at a temperature of eight hundred degrees Celsius so. Things get pretty toasty there are gas pre heating components. There's also an exhaust cooling component. All this is really important for Moxie to operate, but also it's important to cool the exhaust in order to protect the other experiments that are aboard the perseverance. The exhaust also has to pass through a filter before it can be vented back to the Martian atmosphere. Now? Why is that well? It gets back to those contaminants. I mentioned earlier. We ever responsibility to limit the sort of contaminants. We could introduce to another planet, and there's actually an official policy about this is called the planetary protection requirements. Now assuming mock sees, experiments are successful. We might see. NASA and other organizations create larger implementations of the same technology to make. Make a significant amount of oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, and that will be a big step in the direction to send people to Mars as it will give those people an important component for making the rocket fuel needed to return back here to Earth and now finally it's time to talk about ingenuity, a high risk high reward experiment. It's high risk because. No one really knows yet. If it's actually going to work, it's high reward, because if it does well, we'll have an incredible experience that we can build upon so what the heck is ingenuity..

"Moreover, the distance will begin to grow after that point as the plants begin to move apart each other due to their different orbital velocities and elliptical orbits, so at the extreme end, when the two planets are the furthest, they can possibly be from each other on either side of the sun, so the sun is in between Earth and Mars, they are two hundred forty nine million miles apart four hundred one million kilometers at that distance. It would take light a whopping twenty two minutes to travel between Mars and earth. Now that this really matters because you also have a big old son in the way, so you would actually have complications. This scenario is called a solar conjunction. Now here's the thing because of all the factors that I've described here. It takes a little more than two years to go from one opposition or one conjunction to the next one. And actually it's about twenty six months, so earth and Mars will get the closest. They can possibly be in their respective orbits to one another, and then it takes another twenty six months for it to happen again halfway through those six months you will get to the point where they are furthest from each other, and you get the conjunction now. Why did I spend so much time talking about that? It's because NASA has to take all of this into account when planning out mission to Mars, you want to minimize the distance that you're. Spacecraft has to travel in order to get to its destination. Space travel is tough. Man I mean it requires a lot of fuel and fuel has mass and mass means that you need more to get out into space, so you can't just add more fuel to a launch vehicle. All Willy Nilly because just adding that fuel changes things. Moreover, you want to minimize all the things that can go wrong while traveling from point, Earth, two point, Mars. One good way to do that is to reduce the amount of travel time, which means aiming for a time when the two planets are going to be closest moreover..
