Re: Dust

We were talking to the team on their stand at Goodwood, the sample containers the rover will have to find and collect are quite small, about 12cm long. Perseverance can't leave an exact location, due to the lack of GPS on Mars, so they will have find them visually, hoping that dust wont cover them up over the years before the recovery missing takes place.
