NASA is hiring someone to help bring Martian samples back to Earth

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, space travel

NASA is planning to bring Martian samples back to Earth — and they’re looking for someone to lead the mission.

The Mars Sample Return (MSR) program, set to take place over the next decade, aims to collect samples of Martian rock, soil, and atmosphere for analysis and testing on Earth.

NASA has previously sent several rovers to Mars, but no program or robot has ever been able to bring back samples, which could give researchers new insights into the Red Planet.
