PRODUCT INFORMATION

This tube of reddish material is engineered regolith to be chemically and mechanically identical to that of planet Mars. Regolith is a mixture of dust, soil, broken rock and other organic materials. NASA uses this material to test their rovers' performance abilities on the planet and to determine how well crops can be grown on Mars.

The Jezero Delta Simulant (JEZ-1) was made to simulate anticipated materials in the Jezero Crater deltas that will be investigated by the NASA Mars 2020 rover. The simulant is a mixture of MGS-1 mineralogy with smectite clay, Mg-carbonate, and additional olivine that have all been detected from orbital remote sensing in the Jezero delta deposits.

The state of lithificaiton, mineralogy, and grain size distribution are likely variable throughout the Jezero deltas; JEZ-1 represents unconsolidated material, but can be compacted under various pressures to form a more cohesive solid.
