The hole is 50 miles wide, 500 meters deep and ancient, 3,500-3,900 million years old, with a trail of water flowing in a river on the river. Birth is a delta. First, it flows to a large lake in the basin.

NASA's Mars Experts This hole is a Mars 2020 research area because it was a large water tank that could have existed for billions of years. In those days, Mars was hotter and hotter than he is today.

Kenneth Farley said of Caltech, one of NASA's expert teams. It is important to decide to choose a pit. It is a large Delta system There are sediments, mud and limestone that keep traces of lakes or other living organisms upstream.

The name of the pit is the name of a city in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It means "lake" in some Slavic languages ​​such as Czech, Bosnian and Croatian.

The robot of the Mars 2020 Rover, a patrol car to use on this mission. The design and development of the original curiosity robot used in the last mission. New probes and analysis tools for soil and rock samples. It also has experimental equipment. To explore the possibility of oxygen production for astronauts to live on Mars in the future.
