Big Ai failure ;D gotta watch this one!

Perseverance is supposed to gather samples and prepare them so the next rover can send them back in orbit, where another spacecraft (from ESA?) will take them back to earth. I guess they'll have to land nearby Perseverance to do this, won't they?

edit: this article about Viking is great & very surprising, thanks for sharing!!

You are quite right. I found a short video about how the sample return process is supposed to work. It will involve several different missions including one from ESA.
