Capture, Containment and Return System (CCRS)

The Mars Sample Return (MSR) campaign is set to achieve a groundbreaking milestone in space exploration. MSR's primary objective is to collect and return Martian samples to Earth for detailed analysis. The Capture, Containment, and Return System (CCRS) is a crucial component of this mission. Designed by NASA, the CCRS will autonomously secure samples collected by the Perseverance rover and stored in a container on Mars' surface. Once in orbit, the system will retrieve the container and prepare it for the trip back to Earth. The success of the MSR mission is poised to revolutionize our understanding of Mars by returning the first Martian samples to the Earth.
