The world’s largest space research company NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) is very close to executing its Mars mission. Under this mission, NASA will send a rover to the Mars, which is scheduled to launch as early as in July 2020, and it is expected that the Rover will touch down on the red planet in February 2021.
Even after this mission, it will take a lot of time for us to begin our journey on Mars, but if this mission succeeds, it will prove to be a historic victory for the entire human world. Although at present, the possibility of life is not confirmed on mars that’s why no person is being sent to this mission right now, but yes people’s names are definitely being sent to this mission. Yes, you have read correctly, the name of the people, NASA has made this mission a little public to make this mission special for the people, and has given this opportunity to all the people of the world that they can send their names on Mars with NASA’s Mars 2020 rover.
Rover, sent to Mars, is actually a robotic scientist whose weight is more than 2,300 pounds ie 1,000 kilograms. This giant car-size rover will discover signs of previous microbial life on Mars, characterize the planet’s climate and geology, collecting samples for the future, and also and pave the way for human exploration of the Mars.
A special type of silicon chip will be used to send so many names on the rover. The Microdevices Laboratory at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, will use an electron beam to stencil the submitted names onto the silicon chip with lines of text sized 75 nanometers which will be smaller than one-thousandth the width of a human hair. More than 1 million of the same size names can be written on a single dime-sized microchip and then all the name printed chip or chips will ride on the rover under a glass cover.
About this mission, the associate administrator for NASA’s Science Mission Directorate (SMD) in Washington Thomas Zurbuchen said that “As we get ready to launch this historic Mars mission, we want everyone to share in this journey of exploration.” “It’s an exciting time for NASA, as we embark on this voyage to answer profound questions about our neighboring planet, and even the origins of life itself.”
