Dating Younger Rocks

NASA (Dec. 9, 2013) — Hi I'm John Grotzinger. I'm the project scientist for Mars Science Laboratory mission and this is your Curiosity Rover Report. Curiosity's got some great new findings. We've been able to find a place on Mars where we can actually date a rock. That means we don't have to have astronauts to bring them back to Earth like we did back in the 1960's. We simply drill the rock, put it into the instrument and its able to give us the age at which time the rock formed. One of the big things that Curiosity is trying to do is explore and find organic carbon on Mars.
