A specialized prototype rover that could
one day be used by humans on the red
planet of Mars to mine for water has
been developed by a group of scientists.
Singapore University of Technology and
Design collaborated with the Australia’s
Gilmour Space Technologies to create
the early prototype of the rover, Mars
Aqua Retrieval System (M.A.R.S.).
The team created the robot to
withstand 30 percent of Mars’
temperature and pressure conditions.
Discoveries by Curiosity and the
Phoenix Mars Lander, among others,
indicate that water is present on the
Red Planet and is either buried in its
soil or in non-liquid forms like ice. The
discoveries have also opened the
speculation to the presence of life forms
on the planet.
M.A.R.S. is designed to extract the
water from the soil, collect, and store it.
