Curiosity looks for life on Mars – level 2
Curiosity, the Mars Rover which landed on the planet six months ago, drilled into the surface of Mars for the first time. It took a sample which can provide information if there was life on Mars.
It has never been done before on any other planet in our solar system except Earth. The sample was taken from a hole which was 1.6 centimetres wide and 6.4 centimetres deep. The sample will be analysed in the robot's onboard laboratories.
The rover will continue looking for geologic and chemical conditions needed to support and preserve life.
Interesting words: rover (car), surface (top level), preserve (keep).
You can watch the video in the Level 3 section.
