Team from University of Aberdeen to explore Mars

The team from the University of Aberdeen has developed a device to monitor whether water forms on the planet’s surface.

A  device, put together by the university’s Department of Planetary Sciences, will monitor a process scientists believe produces water on the planet but has never been seen before. The instrument was originally supposed to be sent to Mars during a space mission devised by the European Space Agency and its Russian counterpart, but this was put on ice following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine last year.

Funding from the UK Space Agency will now see the device loaded onto a forthcoming Japanese mission to Mars scheduled to take place in the next five to 10 years.
