The Martian rover drilled out two cores from Martian rocks in the Jezero Crater for further analysis.
Sputnik is live from Washington DC where NASA is holding a press conference dedicated to the samples collected by its Perseverance Rover on Mars. The first one was taken four days ago and the second one on Wednesday, 8 September. Perseverance is set to collect a dozen more samples on the Red Planet before returning home to Earth for analysis - which is expected to happen about ten years from now.
