I got thinking about the scientists working on the 2020 rover, your holding a test sample container and thinking, I may be holding this again after it's been on Mars, amazing ! I've always thought that the return spaceship would dock with a space station before eventually returning to earth, or is it set to come directly back to earth ? If it docks with a space station would the space capsule find it's way back to earth ?

They've seen the movie "Life" so now the plan is to return the sample to a space outpost in Lunar space, not around the Earth.
