WATSON zooms in on Martian rocks

NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover is focusing its science instruments on rocks that lay on the floor of Jezero Crater. WATSON (Wide Angle Topographic Sensor for Operations and eNgineering) is located on the SHERLOC (Scanning Habitable Environments with Raman and Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals) instrument, at the end of Perseverance’s robotic arm. On 10 May 2021, the 79th Martian day for Perseverance, WATSON was used to take a closer look at nearby rocks.
