NASA and the US Army use X-rays to look more closely at meteors on Mars
According to the Army research laboratory, Black Beauty, a 2 billion-year meteorite that scientists say is blasted to Earth from Mars with great impact, is among the space specimens to be dealt with in a joint program with NASA
Using KT, researchers say they can gather new insights into the inner workings of objects by presenting 3-D high-resolution images that NASA calls a potential gold mine for further research.
The "Black Beauty" depicted above is a 2 billion-year meteorite that scientists say is blasted from the Earth by Mars. "NASA can eventually use some of this information to contribute to understanding for their next mission on Mars, "said Dr. Jennifer Seitins, an Army engineer.
What is unique about Black Beauty is that it is one of the oldest Martian meteorites that has been found on Earth and has been proven to have evidence of water. "It makes it so special." Collaboration between NASA and the Army's Research Laboratory was born from a project that analyzes moon samples from NASA's Apollo 16 mission and uses technology already used to analyze the microstructure of various materials.
NASA claims the project has already provided important information and a previous understanding of the way some materials work.
NASA program and the US Army take a closer look at some of the world's rarest space models
The partnership we are developing – this collaboration with the Army Research Laboratory in these new measurements of new things – was extraordinary and Dr. James Garvin, chief scientist at NASA's Space Center.
We've already found things that were against what was thought to exist
"Space is a great place and much has to be done."
According to the International Meteorological Society, of the 61,000 meteorites found on Earth, only 224 of them are identified as coming from Mars, making them among the rarest specimens.
The two countries say they plan to publish two articles from magazines later this year for their discoveries, analyzing both the lunar so and Martian rocks.
"We are all discoverers and we are doing this with the US Army," said Garvin. "Meteorites have an incredible history.
What are the plans of NASA for the MAN'S MASTER MISSION in the 2030s?
Mars has become the next giant leap for the study of mankind for space.
Details of the mission in the lunar orbit were revealed as part of the chronology of the events leading to missions to Mars in the 2030s.
NASA outlines its four-stage plan (pictured), which one day hopes to allow people to visit Mars at the "People of Mars" Summit held yesterday in Washington. This will lead to many moon missions in the coming decades
In May 2017, NASA's deputy NASA Policy and Planner Greg Williams outlined the space agency's four-stage plan that hopes one day to allow people to visit Mars,
The first and second phases will involve multiple moon trips to allow the construction of a habitat that will provide a travel zone.
The last piece of hardware delivered would be the actual Deep Space Transport vehicle, which will later be used to carry crew to Mars. An annual simulation of life on Mars will be held in 2027. Phase three and four will begin after 2030 and will include perennial crew expeditions the Martian system and the surface of Mars.
