Mars Science Lab

NASA's Mars Science Laboratory is scheduled for a 2009 Earth launch. Two of the analytical devices selected for the mission are being designed by IU Bloomington geologists. They and their colleagues hope to learn more about the exact composition of Mars -- despite much information about the elements that exist there, humans know next to nothing about how those elements are organized in rocks.
