SPRING Mission: Exploring the past and enabling the future of Mars

SPRING will operate the Miniaturized Variable Pressure Scanning Electron Microscope (MVP-SEM) on the martian surface to assess biosignatures and ancient signs of habitability. SPRING will also deploy an impactor suite, the Mars Surface Probe (MSP), to excavate the target units at depth before the rover lands.
