PNAs:depleted carbon isotope composition observed in gale crater on Mars

In the past 9 years, Mars Science Laboratory -“curiosity” rover has carried out long-term exploration on the river lake facies sedimentary system near gale crater, and collected and analyzed more than 30 drill hole samples. These samples were taken from different lithologic units in the hundreds of meters of gale crater, representing the complex evolution history of the region, providing a great opportunity for carbon isotope research.
