Rover Robot equipment

Hi guys,

Do any of you know anything about ChemCam and other equipment Rovers use in order to search for ever existent water on Mars? I am doing a research as part of my studies and would be very thankful if any of you could fill out a short questionnaire for my primary research! Here is the link for the questionnaire goo.gl/forms/rWFdMZUfKwZM7tbu1 please copy and paste in your browser

To answer your question whether rovers will answer the question of life existence on Mars: No, that will require humans. Dr. Carol Stoker did a little experiment a few years ago. She had students operate rovers on Earth, to look for evidence of life. She didn't tell them where the rovers were, they were remotely operated. None found any. The rovers were in Dinosaur Park, the most concentrated fossils anywhere on Earth.
