They have gone far beyond the neutron spectrometer work. The new instrument uses cosmic rays and gamma rays to identify many different substances---not just water.

A candidate for the 2020 mission.

A jack-hammer would be a nice addition to the payload. Get the crust off the rocks.

Now 'THAT' is what the Martians need as a wake-up call from EARTH to get them up for us to see them. Sent those UK MOLES to Mars fast before the Martians escape.

Hurry, Hurry, Hurry! Everyone now...

Perhaps we have the history of a Lost Civilization,, buried deep beneath rock and radar.

Perhaps the last Martians had to move underground.

How can we know until we ''scratch the surface?''

One thing we dam shure know,,,, there is nothing on the surface but rocks and sand.

All repeat... ALL Future Missions should at least partially focus on underground.

"And a rock turner. GOTTA' have a way to flip the rocks over." Hort, I think the wheels on the rover will spin any way the operator wants them to spin. Rotate 5 one way and 1 the other way. With careful manuvering, we could FLIP rocks.
