News! After 17 days in which the Perseverance rover interrupted the communications with NASA (in and from Mars), it successfully resumed them with a new surprise. NASA recently announced that the Perseverence rover has drilled again into the soil of Mars. This time the rover drilled deep so that no one ever saw what was hiding there. In short, they were large rocks, then suddenly small, the sizes varied. Communications with NASA resumed for Perseverance on October 19, 2021 (first stopped on October 2, 2021). This period of stoppage of communications with NASA is due to the conjunction of the Sun (the Sun was then between Earth and Mars).

From October 25, 2021, the rover started drilling again. In recent days it has reached very low points below the soil of Mars. He began to explore the surrounding area more and more South Séitah, Mars. "Layered rocks like this often form in water and may contain clues about what the environment was like before. Let's see if this would be another good place for #SamplingMars ", NASA posted on the rover's Facebook account. The Perseverance rover has the mission to find small shapes or places that show that life is or was possible on Mars.

So far, NASA says there could be a lot of water on Mars, maybe even at the poles. But Perseverance has a role to play in finding out. "Looking inside to see something no one has ever seen. I sanded a small piece of this rock to remove the layer from the surface and take a look underneath. I'm focusing on my next target for #SamplingMars, "he posted his Perseverance Facebook account on November 9th.

Instead of parts of Mars, there were lakes in front, quite a few lakes, and probably life and existence. NASA uses Perseverance and the Martian helicopter Ingenuity. There is still evidence to prove some things.

Meanwhile, Elon Musk said he wanted to make life on Mars possible, it's not clear how, but he gave some details. You can find out the details given by them here:
