NASA’s Perseverance rover getting ready to snag 2nd Mars sample

NASA’s Perseverance rover will soon try to collect its second Mars sample.

The car-sized robot sealed up a drilled-out core of a Red Planet rock dubbed “Rochette” over the weekend, notching a huge milestone for its ambitious mission. The Perseverance team aims to replicate that success soon, putting poor Rochette to the drill again.
