   26 Feb 00:00:09  |  Universe Today

Geologists love fieldwork. They love getting their specialized hammers and chisels into seams in the rock, exposing unweathered surfaces and teasing out the rock’s secrets. Mars would be the ultimate field trip for many of them, but sadly, that’s not possible. Instead, we’ve sent the Perseverance rover on the field trip. But if a geologist …

   24 Feb 00:00:03  |  Universe Today
