NASA is still trying to find out, discovering evidence of water in a Martian meteorite just over a week ago. But though scientists are happy to investigate meteorites and live vicariously through robotic rovers roaming the Red Planet, theyre really itching to get their hands on samples scooped right off the Martian surface to analyze here at home. Now, a team at NASA believes they can do so cost-effectively, as soon as 2022, by relying on commercial spaceflight provider SpaceX for a little help. Back in 2011, NASA proposed using a modified SpaceX Dragon capsule — dubbed Red Dragon — to deliver equipment to the Martian surface as a landing craft.
