NASA is announcing a new discovery from Mars on Thursday

NASA's Curiosity rover landed inside Mars's 96-mile-wide Gale Crater on August 6, 2012, and has spent its time since then investigating the Red Planet's geology, climate and the question of whether or not it has ever supported microbial life. "It symbolizes months and weeks of effort by our staff to pull off this", said Jim Erickson, project director of the Mars Science Laboratory mission, that will be directed by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Pasadena, California.

After 18 months, NASA's Curiosity Mars rover's onboard laboratories are back online.

The space agency revealed few details about what will be announced Thursday, but the "live discussion" will feature "new science results from NASA's Mars Curiosity rover", according to a NASA announcement.

Engineers in Nasa had to improvise a brand new method for the rover to drill rocks on Mars following a mechanical problem took the drill offline at December 2016.

The event will be streamed on NASA's YouTube page, Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, and Twitter's Periscope platform. "The media advisory on Thursday's press conference on "new science results" from Curiosity rover states that results are embargoed by Science Magazine - and Eigenbrode's bio is suggestive".

The key technology for Curiosity's soil sampling is its robotic arm, specifically its robotic hand, which is a complex assembly of sensors, drilling apparatus, and a system for accepting, grading, and conveying soil and rock powder to the laboratories located inside the body of the rover.

The vehicle was then driven east on Route 460 at a maximum speed of about 40 miles per hour , according to State Police. The vehicles typically carry a large communications suite to keep commanders in contact with various echelons at once.

And, sure enough, on May 31, the rover successfully transferred the sample - taken from a Martian sedimentary rock that has been given the name "Duluth", the Inquisitr reported last month - into its mineralogy lab and will move it into the chemistry lab later during the week.

However, the rover had to pass one more hurdle and move the rock powder from its drill into its internal lab.

"The science team was convinced that the engineers could deliver-so Convinced we drove back into some website that we overlooked drilling ahead".

"This was no small feat".

"On Mars, we have to try and estimate visually whether this is working, just by looking at images of how much powder falls out", John Michael Moorokian, the engineer who led the development of the new sample delivery method, said in a statement. "It is rather impressive to have a moment such as this, five years to the assignment". But this is a major milestone for the mission, said Ashwin Vasavada of JPL, the mission's project scientist. "It means we can resume studying Mount Sharp, which Curiosity is climbing, with our full range of scientific tools".
