Perseverance rover collected organic materials from a Red Planet river delta.

The rover is looking for signs of early Martian life.

The US Space Agency is planning a mission to bring Mars samples back to Earth.

Ken Farley, a project scientist, said the delta rocks have the most organic material. This is different from mission findings.

The Mars rover has taken 12 samples after gathering four in the delta, a former lake bed.

The latest discovery was made in a location where silt and salts accumulated into a lake billions of years ago.

According to the researchers, these sediments originated in conditions that supported life.
