The Curiosity rover on Mars, landed in 2012, is capable of mineralogical investigation using X‑ray diffraction, complementing the abundant infrared remote sensing data already available on clay minerals. We can, however, expect that the in situ X‑ray diffraction information will convey a more complex picture than that inferred from infrared spectroscopy alone.
CheMin has landed.
