According to astronomers, the images show important clues that may facilitate the search for evidence of life on Mars.
studying published employment Science Made based on high-resolution images taken by the rover at a place believed to exist drifts that was once river banks.

Researchers believe that layers within the cliffs reveal how their formation occurred, as NASA astrobiologist Amy Williams and colleagues found in Florida. Similarity With cliffs seen from the floor of the pit and Earth’s River Patterns.
