    The overarching concept of our design is a multi-assay recording system (MARS) that consists of a modular electrophysiology headstage. The MARS drive can be configured in different ways to provide researchers with flexibility in their study design, resulting in greater experimental utility. NASA EDGE learns about the Sample Analysis at Mars [SAM] instrument currently operating on the Martian surface.

It is currently unknown whether or not life forms exist on such life exists, a MSR could potentially transfer viable organisms resulting in a risk of back contamination — the introduction of extraterrestrial organisms into Earth's biosphere.

    to be landed on Mars. The MPF system was not readily scalable to landing a kg payload, whereas the Mars '01 soft landing system was scalable without requiring extensive new technology developments. the soft landing system was also estimated to be a lower mass design and capable of providing more volume to the payload. The search for life on Mars is a major NASA priority. A Mars Sample Return (MSR) mission, Mars , will be NASA's next step towards this goal, carrying an instrument suite that can identify samples containing potential biosignatures. Those samples will be later returned to Earth for detailed analysis.

A point design of a penetrator system for a Mars mission is described. A strawman payload which is to conduct measurements of geophysical and meteorological parameters is included in the design. Mars Science Laboratory Sample Acquisition, Sample Processing and Handling: Subsystem Design and Test Challenges The Sample Acquisition/Sample Processing and Handling subsystem for the Mars Science Laboratory is a highly-mechanized, Rover-based sampling system that acquires powdered rock and regolith samples from the Martian surface, sorts the samples into fine.

This paper presents a Mars Sample Return (MSR) Sample Acquisition and Caching (SAC) study developed for the three rover platforms: MER, MER+, and MSL. The study took into account 26 SAC requirements provided by the NASA Mars Exploration Program Office.

For this SAC architecture, the reduction of mission risk was chosen by us as having greater priority than mass or volume. Introduction: Mars missions may benefit from sample acquisition systems under development that are capable of acquiring samples from the surface, from a few centime-ters below the surface, from 1 meter below the surface and from 10 meters or more below the surface.

Abstract: Future Mars sample return missions would require technology to robotically acquire and cache multiple samples for delivery back to Earth.

Anticipating the need to acquire samples and prevent cross-contamination, individual detachable scoops and caching boxes were designed for. This book describes the fundamentals of data acquisition systems, how they enable users to sample signals that measure real physical conditions and convert the resulting samples into digital, numeric values that can be analyzed by a s: 1.

The Mars Sample Return (MSR) mission represents a key milestone in the exploration and understanding of Mars, including the associated astrobiology questions and those regarding its potential habitability.

The very ambitious scientific objectives, the planetary protection and non-contamination issues, as well as the overall technical complexity and difficulties put a huge challenge on its.

After acquiring a rock core or regolith sample, the bit with the sample inside it is inserted di-rectly into the cache and a new drill bit is acquired.

Mars, being the fourth planet from the Sun, resides with Earth in a region of the Solar System where liquid water can exist on the surface (regarding the temperature aspect), and therefore the chance that life is, or once was, present on Mars remains a distinct possibility and the key question of Mars research.

• Avoidance of sample cross-contamination • “Waste” samples still have scientific value • Complexity of sub-sample multiplication • One sample goes out → TBD number of samples are returned • Samples are returned in non-original state, have been studied at different labs etc.MARS: DESCRIPTION Mars is the fourth planet from the Sun in the solar system after Earth and before Jupiter [2].

It is often called the “Red Planet” because of its orange-red color visible from Earth [4]. Mars is one of the four terrestrial, or earthlike, planets. It is made up of rocky layers.Detailed Reports of the Mars Sample Return: Site Selection and Sample Acquisition Study, JPLVolumes I-X, Mars Science Working Group Mars Sample Return Study Effort, NASA Jet Propulsion.
