We now have a better picture of where the European Space Agency’s Rosalind Franklin ExoMars rover will be driving when it lands on Mars for its life-seeking mission, all thanks to a brand new geological map of its landing zone.

“This map is exciting because it is a guide that shows us where to find the answers,” said Peter Fawdon of the UK’s Open University in a press statement. “It serves as a visual hypothesis of what we currently know about the different rocks in the landing site. The instruments on Rosalind Franklin will allow us to test our knowledge on the spot when the time comes.”
