How to build the best, most powerful rover coolants for Mars
Curiosity is making good on a dream to go to Mars, and the mission team is working to develop an advanced, lightweight liquid-coolant that could be used to help it accomplish its goals.
The Mars 2020 rover, nicknamed Curiosity, will land on Mars at the end of 2020.
NASA has been working on building a rover with the goal of one day returning samples to Earth for testing.
“This is the best rover in our mission to Mars,” said Matt Taylor, a mission scientist with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., which designed the rover.
NASA plans to spend about $1 billion on the rover, which will include a suite of technologies that could help it go to the Red Planet.
Taylor said the team has spent the last year and a half developing a new technology that uses an adhesive to keep the rover in place.
That technology uses an “adhesive-based” design to make the rover stiffer and lighter.
It also uses a new material called a biocompatible polyurethane.
Scientists believe the new material could help the rover stay in place longer, and also help protect the rover’s batteries from the Martian environment.
But a new rover called ChemCam will use a different adhesive, called a polyurea, that’s designed to stay on surfaces and prevent water from soaking into the rover and corroding it.
The new rover, called Chemcam-2, will use the new polymer-based adhesive.
While NASA is investing in its first rover, the agency is still a ways off from launching its next.
The next round of the Curiosity mission, called Mars 2020, will be called Mars Exploration Rovers, or MAR.
NASA’s Mars 2020 mission will be one of the last missions to be launched before humans retire to Mars.
The spacecraft is scheduled to arrive in 2020 and will have a crew of two.
NASA plans to send a rover on another Mars mission, named Curiosity 2020, in 2026.
