Watch Nasa’s Cinematic Animation of Mars Sample Return

A cinematic animation from NASA has been created, highlighting some of the most significant events from the future Mars Sample Return (MSR) mission. Multiple spacecraft are involved in the challenging uncrewed mission, which is scheduled to launch in 2033. The Perseverance rover mission, which is currently investigating the Martian surface and collecting samples for the MSR mission to pick up and deliver to Earth, is connected to the MSR mission. NASA's most advanced rover to date, Perseverance, made a stunning landing on Mars in February 2021. The samples it collects will be brought back to Earth by the MSR mission and examined there in cutting-edge labs.

If so, it might provide hints as to how life came to be on our planet. In a statement that accompanied the animation, NASA stated that it was working with the European Space Agency to prepare plans for one of the most ambitious space missions ever attempted: returning the first samples of Mars material to Earth safely for in-depth analysis. "Bringing samples from Mars to Earth for future study would take place over the course of several steps using a number of different spacecraft, in some ways synchronized. The Mars Sample Return campaign's crucial phases are depicted in this brief animation, including the landing on Mars, securing the sample tubes, propelling them off the surface, and transporting them back to Earth.

NASA's Perseverance rover will continue its work, gathering more samples from various locations on Mars in advance of the launch of the ambitious MSR mission, as the JPL team continues its preparation work on Earth.
