American space agency, NASA has started the process to determine landing site for Mars rover that is expected to be launched in July or August 2020.
The space agency has finalised eight locations on the Red planet for potential landing. They experts have chosen eight sitesas candidate landing sites for the Mars 2020 Rover out of the initial list of 21 targets. The rover is expected to land in February 2021.
The rover is expected to search for rocks that might provide evidence of life that might have existed on MARS. The site was chosen after a vote following a workshop in Monrovia that was organised for three days. The leading locations are where there are ancient river deltas and hot springs that might offer an ideal place to search for evidence of past microbial life on Mars.
Many experts have said that Jezero crater, where one of one of the old river deltas is located, is leading the list of potential sites for landing.
Bethany Ehlmann, a planetary scientist at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) in Pasadena, said, "The appeal is twofold. Not only is there a delta, but the rocks upstream are varied and diverse."
