Percy’s deposition

Percy returned to Mars in July 2020. After nearly a year of exploration, yesterday (21 Dec 2022) Percy began one of his main missions, sample deposition.

Many holes were dug on the surface of Mars and soil, rock dust, etc. were collected from them in small titanium tubes, sealed and deposited in various places on the surface of Mars.

NASA intends to return these samples to Earth through the sample return program planned for 2027-2028.
