By looking for evidence of water, carbon, and other important building blocks of life in the Mars soil and atmosphere, this suite will help answer one of humankind's biggest questions about the planet: did it ever support life? SAM was designed and built in an international collaboration between Goddard Space Flight Center, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the University of Paris, and Honeybee Robotics. This video series highlights the mission, its objectives, and some of Goddard's contributors to the project. This video profiles Jess Lewis, designer of SAM's Solid Sample Inlet Tube (SSIT). The SSIT is essentially a high-tech funnel that helps direct the Mars soil into the SAM suite for analysis. This video profiles Jess Lewis, designer of SAM's Solid Sample Inlet Tube (SSIT).
