Nasa is preparing to make an announcement relating to its exploration of Mars. According to a statement from the space Agency, at a press conference, experts will talk about new achievements in terms of colonization of Mars.

Among the researchers invited to share the new Curiosity rover discovery with the public are two scientists from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, and two representatives from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

The event will be streamed on NASA's YouTube page, Facebook Live, Twitch TV, Ustream, and Twitter's Periscope platform.

25 killed in in Guatemala volcano eruption, 1.7mn residents affected
Three bodies lay partially buried in ash-colored debris from the volcano , which lies about 45 kilometres from Guatemala City. Lesser amounts of ash reached the capital of Guatemala City some 25 miles away, forcing the closure of its global airport.

The problem with the rover's drill was caused by a faulty motor.

"On May 20, a method known as" feed prolonged drilling" allowed Curiosity to drill its original stone sample because October 2016; on May 31, another technique known as" feed prolonged sample transport" successfully trickled stone powder to the rover for processing by its mineralogy lab. Delivery to its own chemistry lab will follow at the week beforehand.

The Mars Science Laboratory mission sent Curiosity rover to explore Mars in 2011.

The next step to making the rover fully operational again was the analysis of the said rock sample, in the form of Martian powder, inside the rover's two laboratories. FED lets Curiosity drill using the force of its robotic arm to push its drill forward and pull it back as it spins. It's quite remarkable to have a moment like this, five years into the mission.

Ashwin Vasavada who is the mission's project scientist of JPL believes this is a substantial milestone for the assignment. "It means we can resume studying Mount Sharp, which Curiosity is climbing, with our full range of scientific tools".
