  • Perseverance rover sent back images of a 3.7-billion-year-old ancient river delta
  • It may serve as clue to investigate signs of ancient human life on Mars
  • The rover collected the images from Jezero crater

The volcanic activity has been called "super eruptions". (Photo Credit: Twitter/@NASA)

  • Volcanic eruptions on Mars spanned over 500 million years
  • The eruptions altered Mars' climate
  • Creators around the area were thought to be asteroid impacts

  • NASA's Perseverance rover collected two rock samples from the red planet
  • The samples show signs that they were in contact with water for a long period of time
  • The samples were collected from Jezero Crater,

  • Brown and Batygin have added several other observations of objects
  • They have calculated that the clustering is almost certainly real
  • Planet 9 is said to be many times the size of Earth

  • NASA had initially planned just five flights for its helicopter on Mars, Ingenuity
  • It has completed 12 flights and covered a distance of 1.6 miles
  • NASA is now working on data from the helicopter to design its successor

  • Four volunteers with no underlying health and dietary issues are invited
  • They will live in the Mars Dune Alpha, a 3D-printed 1,700-square-foot module
  • They have to be US citizens aged 30-55

  • NASA plans to bring around 30 rock samples from Mars to Earth for analysis
  • Data sent from the Perseverance rover showed no evidence of rock being gathered
  • The drilling is the first step in a process that is slated to take 11 days

  • The samples are likely to provide insight on any existence of life on the planet
  • The sample will be collected from what used to be a lake bed
  • The collection is expected to be completed in two weeks
