Michael Bouchard and the rocky search for origin of Perseverance
Michael Bouchard and the rocky search for origin of Perseverance Michael Bouchard, a PhD candidate and NASA Earth and Space Science Fellow at Washington University St. Louis (pictured on Earth left) searched for clues to the origin of Perseverance by comparing the composition of rocks within the valley to other rock suites observed along the rim of Endeavor Crater. Among the most intriguing rocks found to date in Perseverance are the Nueva Vizcaya type (right), which are scoured and eroded probably by wind-blown sand. Collection of M.
