NASA plans to send robots to the surface of Mars. Jezero Crater in the next two years. Because geological evidence shows that. There is a river that flows into a large lake in the area billions of years ago. And maybe there are traces of living things.

These holes are located on the Mars equator, 50 km wide, 500 meters old and 3,500-3,900 million years old, with traces of water flowing across rivers into rivers. Birth is a delta. First, it flows into a large lake inside the basin.

NASA Mars Expert This hole is the Mars 2020 survey area, because it is a large water reservoir that can exist for billions of years. At that time, Mars was warmer and more humid than now.

Said Kenneth Farley from Caltech, one of NASA's expert teams. It is important to make a decision to choose a hole. Is a large delta system There are sediments, mud and limestone that preserve traces of lakes or other living organisms from upstream.

Pit names are the name of a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. This means "lake" in several Slavic languages ​​such as Czech, Bosnian, and Croatian.

Robot Mars 2020 Rover, patrol car to be used in this mission. The design and development of the original Curiosity robot used in the last mission. New detection and analysis tools for soil and rock samples. It also has experimental equipment. To explore the possibility of producing oxygen for astronauts to live on Mars in the future.
