The POT continues to reveal surprising discoveries as part of his mission in Marsthrough the robot called rover perseverance, because now they have announced that organic matter was found in the samples collected by this terrestrial device.

Perseverance project investigator at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena, Ken Farley, explained that collecting these samples provides a rich understanding of the post-crater geological history and a diverse sample set.
It should be noted that NASA’s mission on Mars ends in 2030, when all the samples collected by the Perseverance rover are expected to return to Earth. However, by 2033 NASA is scheduled to retrieve some samples from the Martian surface.
