Reynolds UK Products Enable NASA Mars
We’re delighted to be part of the SuperCam instrument, a combined camera, laser and spectrometer designed to look for organic compounds that could be clues of possible past life on the planet. It is able to make measurements and identify chemical and mineral targets as small as a pencil point from up to 20 feet away. More information
Our partnership was with IRAP, the French Institut De Recherche En Astrophysique Et Planétologie, key contributors to the SuperCam instrument. This is part of a long-standing collaboration which includes parts on the Solar Orbiter mission. More information from IRAP
