  • NASA’s Curiosity rover has tasted its first sample from a Martian region called “the clay-bearing unit” on Mount Sharp, the US space agency said.
  • Curiosity drilled a piece of bedrock nicknamed “Aberlady” on April 6 the 2,370th Martian day, or sol, of the mission and delivered the sample to its internal mineralogy lab on 10th April , NASA said in a statement.
  • The rover’s drill chewed easily through the rock, unlike some of the tougher targets it faced nearby on Vera Rubin Ridge.
  • It was so soft, in fact, that the drill did not need to use its percussive technique, which is helpful for snagging samples from harder rock.
  • This was the mission’s first sample obtained using only rotation of the drill bit.
  • “Curiosity has been on the road for nearly seven years,” said Curiosity Project Manager Jim Erickson of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, US.
  • “Finally drilling at the clay-bearing unit is a major milestone in our journey up Mount Sharp,” Erickson said.
  • Scientists are eager to analyse the sample for traces of clay minerals because they usually form in water.
  • NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) spied a strong clay “signal” here long before Curiosity landed in 2012.
  • Pinpointing the source of that signal could help the science team understand if a wetter Martian era shaped this layer of Mount Sharp, the 5-kilometer-tall mountain Curiosity has been climbing.
