A lander that’s been sent to Mars to investigate a possible water source has been found to have an unusual problem.article”It’s not a problem for the lander,” NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory said in a statement.
“It’s a problem in the payload.”
The Mars rover Curiosity was built to survive the impact of a comet in 2020.
But it’s still not clear what caused the landers engines to blow up, NASA said.
“The rover team will investigate this problem in a follow-up analysis of the rover’s software,” the agency said.
“If it proves to be a real issue, we will take immediate steps to fix it.”
