NASA Adapting Earth Sensor To Read Data From Mole In Mars Soil SpaceDaily

NASA scientists are modifying a sensor so it could look for signs of martian life by reading data from a soil-burrowing ‘mole’ capsule. Researchers at NASA Ames Research Center in California’s Silicon Valley are adapting the Earth observation instrument for potential use during future Mars missions in a search for water, ice, organics and minerals in the soil.
