RainDreamer Posted September 28, 2015 Share Posted September 28, 2015 Perchlorate removal is a very involved process. Maybe they will repurpose the Mars 2020 mission? But it is more likely that "brown patch" exploration will be the focus of the mission after that one, which would postpone the sample return mission. In any case, there is going to be some reshuffling of exploration cards in the near future.I think they said in the stream that the Mars 2020 rover, which is based on curiosity, is not fit to explore the area. They will need to design a new robotic craft that can travel the steep area and remain easy to be sterilized for planetary protection purpose (apparently that is a design concern that KSP players never have to care for).
