A strange rock has been captured on Mars by NASA and is attracting the attention of scientists

There is no doubt that thanks to the existence of NASA, knowledge about the other planets has advanced sufficiently and extremely quickly. Now this institution has recently unveiled a new discovery that is considered important and, due to its characteristics, attracts the attention of those interested in the space.

The discovery was made by Rover Perseverance, a rover explorer that was launched to Mars and has remained there for some time. Thanks to this technological equipment, several advances considered important have been demonstrated, allowing us to draw conclusions about the atmosphere of Mars. In fact, this research robot has high-end technology such as high-resolution cameras, microphones and a remote laboratory.

The latest find involves a huge stone that is said to look like an avocado. The shape of this stone has sparked interest because not only does it resemble the world’s most famous food, but it may also have been a modified item. Scientists are currently examining the rock and drawing conclusions from it.

Rover Perseverance mission on Mars:

Although Mars has been one of the planets most studied and explored by humans for more than forty years, there are still many secrets and unknown information about this space body. Questions such as “What happened to the hundreds of rivers on this planet?” or “Did life ever exist on Mars” have not yet been answered.

For this reason, the famous robot Perseverance was built and sent to Mars. In this way, the robot was equipped with the latest high-end technology to answer the question of whether humans could live on Mars in the future.

Interest in the Red Planet is so great that countries such as China, the Union of Arab Emirates and the United States are behind important research. In return, they allocated large sums of money for Mars exploration.

In July 2020, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, the robot was launched. Since then, his mission has been to explore the surface of the celestial body. The investment in this project was significant and thanks to it the technology team was able to achieve several improvements compared to its predecessors. For example, it has stronger wheels, a robotic arm and a computer system that processes incredible amounts of data.

In order to answer the question of whether living things existed on Mars, the robot is able to analyze and detect minerals and organic material. The chemical composition of the rocks on this planet will also be investigated.
