MISSION

Dynamic Albedo of Neutrons

The Dynamic Albedo of Neutrons instrument will provide the first surface means of detecting neutron emissions that escape as cosmic rays from space bombard the martian surface. It is a way of detecting hydrogen and, thus, the possible presence of water). Traditionally, this capability has been on board spacecraft orbiting Mars. This instrument will provide local ground measurements to compare to what has been detected from orbit.
