ChemCam inpsects Mars: can it support life?


ChemChem's instrumentation aboard the Mars Science Lab’s rover Curiosity has made all sorts of discoveries. ChemCam found evidence of lots of water in the planet’s past and enough water presently to possibly sustain future astronauts.

This instrument zaps rocks with a high-powered laser to determine their composition and carries a camera that surveys Mars, uncovering clues about the environment and climate, surveying geography and collecting data for a manned mission.
