Tutti su Marte

Nella seconda metà del mese di luglio ben 3 navicelle partiranno alla volta del pianeta rosso. Usa e Cina sbarcheranno su Marte con due rover adatti all’esplorazione della superficie, mentre per la prima volta gli Emirati arabi uniti invieranno una sonda spaziale in orbita intorno al pianeta per studiarne l’atmosfera. La Cina ha denominato la sua missione “Domande per il Paradiso”. Nel frattempo, la Nasa ha reso noto che il sismometro del lander InSight, noto come Seis, già da qualche tempo attivo sulla superficie di Marte, ha rilevato centinaia di terremoti e scosse di assestamento che scuotono regolarmente il pianeta rosso.

The robotic vehicle will hunt for rocks containing biological signatures, if they exist. (NASA/JPL-Caltech via AP)
