NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) have formed a team of scientists that will be the backbone of the study of Martian rock samples that will be brought to Earth in the future.

Band bearers of science on the return of samples from Mars

The group was called the Mars Sample Return Campaign Science Group. It includes 16 scientists from different countries. Of course, not only these people will get access to the samples, but this will be the basis of the project.

These 16 people will be the flag bearers for the science of returning samples from Mars. They will create a roadmap by which science will reach this historic milestone, including establishing sample-related decision-making processes and developing procedures that will allow the global scientific community to study these first samples from another world.

The group included:

  • Laura Rodriguez – NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Southern California.
  • Michael Thorpe – Johnson Space Center NASA, Houston/Texas State University, San Marcos
  • Audrey Bouvier – Bavarian Institute of Geosciences, University of Bayreuth, Germany
  • Andy Czaja – Department of Geology, University of Cincinnati
  • Nicholas Dauphas – Origins Laboratory, University of Chicago
  • Katherine French – Central Energy Resources Science Center, USGS, Denver
  • Lydia Hallis – School of Geographic and Geosciences, University of Glasgow, UK
  • Rachel Harris – Department of Organic and Evolutionary Biology, Harvard University, Boston
  • Ernst Hauber – Institute for Planetary Research, German Aerospace Center, Germany
  • Suzanne Schwenzer – School of Earth, Environmental and Ecosystem Sciences, Open University, UK
  • Andrew Steele – Earth and Planetary Laboratory, Carnegie Institution of Washington
  • Kimberly Tait – Department of Natural History, Royal Ontario Museum, Canada
  • Tomohiro Usui – Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency
  • Jessica Vanhomwegen – Biohazard Emergency Response Laboratory, Institut Pasteur, France
  • Michael Veibel – Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences, Michigan State University
  • Maria-Paz Zorzano Mier – Center for Astrobiology, National Institute of Aerospace Technology, Spain

The first meeting of the Science Team of the Mars Sample Return Campaign is scheduled for June 28-29. At the same time, of course, there are no samples from Mars on Earth yet. The Mars Sample Return Mission implies the possibility of launching a ship to receive samples from Mars in the best case in 2026, and then they will get to Earth only in 2031.

SoC in Apple Watch Series 8 is equivalent to SoC

Bloomberg editor Mark Gurman spoke about the new Apple Watch that Apple will release later this year, including the Apple Watch Series 8 and Apple Watch SE 2.

There have been reports earlier that Apple will add a faster Apple S8 SoC to the Apple Watch Series 8, but Gurman claims that “the Apple S8 will have the same specs as the Apple S7.” At the same time, the Apple S7 in terms of characteristics is almost a copy of the Apple S6 in the Apple Watch Series 6 of the 2020 model.

Mark Gurman added that next year’s Apple Watch Series 9 will feature a “completely new processor.” As for the Apple Watch SE 2, it will have the same screen as the Apple Watch SE, as well as the Apple S8 SoC, which will be faster than the Apple S5 SoC found in the Apple Watch SE.

watchOS 9 is ending support for the Apple Watch Series 3, so I’d eventually expect that model to be discontinued in the fall. The Apple Watch SE will remain a mid-range option.

He previously said that the Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to feature at least one new body temperature sensor.
