NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover collects 9th sample from Red Planet

NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover is digging on the Red Planet’s surface for evidence of running water in the planet’s past – and signs of ancient life on Mars, if it ever existed.

Perseverance is currently exploring an ancient river delta in the interior crater lake and recently collected its ninth Martian rock sample not far from where it originally landed in February 2021, mission team members announced.
