NASA's hefty Martian rover will use an AI brain on a robot arm to map out signs of ancient life on Red Planet

"NASA's hefty Martian rover..."

Unfortunately, Mars was only life-friendly for its first half a billion years before its small core cooled and died also taking out the protective magnetic field and the rest is history. NASA's realistically right to potentially look only for tiny dead microfossils although both Europa and Enceladus look to be potentially far more hospitable to life. That's where I'd send the probes.
