Paper Abstract

NASA is developing the MARS 2020 mission, which includes a rover that will land and operate on the surface of Mars. MARS 2020, scheduled for launch in July, 2020, is designed to conduct an assessment of Mars’ past habitability, search for potential biosignatures, demonstrate progress toward the future return of samples to Earth, and contribute to NASA’s Human Exploration and Space Technology Programs.
