How Mars Curiosity’s labs are back in action?

NASA has said the testing of the new drilling and sample delivery method will continue as the Curiosity team analyzes the results of the lab analysis.

According to NASA, Thursday's Mars science discussion will be hosted by Michelle Thaller, the assistant director of science for communications in the agency's Planetary Science Division.

"The media and public are invited to ask questions during a live discussion at 2 pm EDT (11:30 pm IST) Thursday, June 7 on new science results from NASA's Mars Curiosity rover".

For instance, back in 2016, the web lit up with speculation that Nasa had found an "alien homeland" on a moon of Jupiter.

The Mars Science Laboratory mission sent Curiosity rover to explore Mars in 2011.

NASA's announcement will stream live online and on the agency's terrestrial television platform NASA Television from 2pm EDT or 7pm United Kingdom time.

Curiosity has been exploring Mars since touching down in August 2012 with the goal of finding out if the red planet was ever able to support microbial life.

She took a photo and posted it on Twitter , writing, "This should not be hanging in my soon-to-be-kindergartener's classroom". Speaking to The Boston Globe , Cohen said that while she was disturbed by the rhyme, she understood why it was there.

Also in conference will take part the senior scientific employee of Laboratory of jet movement NASA in Pasadena Chris Webster, an employee of a Scientific laboratory NASA JPL Ashwin Vasavada and the Director of the Department of intelligence of the solar system in space flight Center name Goddard Paul Mahaffey.

The NASA conference will stream live on Express.co.uk alongside Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, YouTube and Periscope.

However, the rover had to pass one more hurdle and move the rock powder from its drill into its internal lab.

Curiosity drilled its last scheduled rock sample in October 2016. The inlets lead to Curiosity's onboard laboratories.

"We're cautiously optimistic that MarCO-B can follow MarCO-A", said Joel Krajewski of JPL, MarCO's project manager.

However, all the hints indicate towards a correlation between the restart of Curiosity Rover's drilling experiments and this "new science results". The risk paid off, and now we have a key pattern that we may have never received. Engineers at NASA spent more than a year developing a workaround drilling technique called Feed Extended Drilling, or FED, which uses the rover's robotic arm to direct and push the drill into the ground as the drill bit spins. Surprisingly, we had the opportunity after five years of the mission.
