The rocks may harbor evidence of liquid water activity on ancient Mars.

These strikingly layered Mars rocks may be the Perseverance rover’s next sampling target.

Perseverance recently snapped some nice photos of layered rocks on the floor of Mars’ Jezero Crater, and mission team members shared two of them Thursday (Nov. 4) via the rover’s official Twitter account.

“Get a load of these layers! I’m getting out my abrading tool to take a look inside. Layered rocks like this often form in water, and can hold clues about what their environment used to be like. Let’s see if this would be another good place for #SamplingMars,” mission team members wrote in the Thursday tweet.
