Rock samples were collected by NASA’s Perseverance from the dry lake bottom of Mars’ Jezero Crater.
The sample reveals the Red Planet once had a potentially habitable sustainable environment.
NASA shares analysis of the first rock samples collected by Perseverance.
The core sample has a basaltic composition, which scientists think may have formed from ancient lava flows. This can provide a timeline of ancient lakes – from when they were formed to when they disappeared. There is also groundwater found in the rocks, which NASA says suggests Mars is a potentially habitable sustainable environment.
