Mars Perseverance Mission- Imaginary Article

Mars Perseverance Mission

It is 2031 and the samples have just been returned to Earth from the Mars Perseverance Explorer. You are to write an imaginary, but scientifically plausible, article that announces the first findings from that mission.   Your paper must include the following (with headers to label each of these sections). Consequently  an overview of the Perseverance mission with an explanation of how and from where they gather the samples . Also a description of the samples gathered. Hence a scientific explanation of indicators of past or current life on Mars that they are  examining from the samples. Additionally a scientific explanation of how they think the lifeform  survives (metabolism, nutrients, energy source, protection from extreme conditions). Examples on Earth that help scientists understand the potential lifeforms from the sample.

Further Description

You are expected to use information you have learned on the course to EXPAND upon the information from the NASA website and current articles on the Perseverance mission. Cutting and pasting from these sites, or simple re-writes of what is there, does not constitute a term paper. You must demonstrate your OWN learning of the material in the course. A successful paper will be at least 2000 words and will follow the format above. It will include: A clear, accurate, and coherent scientific argument that uses scientifically valid information (from the Internet or journals) and many of the main concepts used in the course. Your paper should demonstrate your understanding of these concepts, not just the awareness of the terminology.

A clear organization and correct grammar to provide a readable and intelligent paper. It should be easy and pleasurable to read. This must include an introduction, conclusion, and the mandatory headers to help make clarify your argument. Within this format, your paper should demonstrate individuality and creativity to show how you have digested and interpreted the information, and to show me it is your OWN work. Papers that read like a bunch of cut and paste text without any personality will be poorly graded.
