The rover Curiosity started studying of a stone of Little Colonsay


A few days ago NASA after all was succeeded to awaken the sleeping research rover Curiosity on Mars - the song under the name Please would you be my neighbor behind authorship of Mr was sent it. Rogers. Now, when research rover was already finally restored in respect of the functions and motor skills, the new round of a research mission is necessary to it - namely to inspect the examples of breeds located on the site Hayfield. Since 2012 when rover landed on the surface of the Red Planet and till today, he managed to find four very occupied examples of the stone breeds hidden at a small depth.

the Last from the found stones carries the name Little Colonsay and represents the most interesting candidate for studying - the matter is that this stone was not analysed by rover tools in view of its entry into the hibernation mode earlier. Today research rover sent several pictures to the command center NASA and thus started the following stage of studying of breeds. ChemCam where the laser and the spectrograph will be accepted to disclosure of secrets and secrets of breed will this time serve as its main tool.

According to preliminary pictures and data, specialists of the center of a mission Curiosity believe that the stone of Little Colonsay represents a meteorite piece as has the properties which are obviously reflecting light and pronounced shine - however, this theory only waits for the confirmation. At the moment time the mission continues in the normal mode, and experts hope that in the nearest future anything special does not happen to the rover Curiosity as last time.

Should note the fact that the rover Curiosity anyway develops some tools which were not used earlier in general or which were used seldom - for example, the strengthened drill to get more deeply into a subsoil of the Martian surface. While it is not clear what following step of rover and a mission in general will be, however experts note that the current stage will take rover at least about half a year on the exact analysis.
