Mars cart collects pieces of stone from planet Mars

It seems that the Mars robot Perseverance has managed to collect stone noise from the planet Mars. Thats what NASA says.

The photo above shows how the robot drilled a hole in a stone. The grit that raised as a result has been captured by Perseverance. Thats shown in a photo that forwarded the Mars cart:

Its not quite sure if it succeeded. The grit is no longer visible in a second picture.

The Mars Robot has more than 40 tubes to collect stone noise. They will be picked up later by another robot.

Space Agency NASA wants to investigate the stone noise to learn more about the planet. Itll take a while before they can start doing that. Its not until about ten years that the tubes come to Earth.
