Mars Spirit rover

Mars Spirit rover. Computer illustration of the Spirit rover on the surface of Mars. This is one of two identical rovers sent to Mars in 2003. It is designed to study the history of the Martian climate and to search for evidence of ancient water. It will study the composition and formation of soil and rocks. It has a panoramic camera on the white pole at upper centre which will allow interesting areas to be chosen for study. It will travel up to 100 metres in each Martian day (sol; 24 hours 37 minutes). It is hoped it will operate for over 90 sols. Spirit landed successfully on Mars in January 2004

Copper, zinc and brass

Copper, zinc and brass (from left to right). Brass is an alloy of copper and zinc. It can contain from 20-45 percent of zinc, depending on the type of brass. Brass is easily shaped (malleable) and is a good electrical conductor. Copper and zinc are both transition metal elements. Zinc is also used in batteries and paints. A major use of zinc is in galvanizing: coating other metals to protect them from corrosion. Copper is also used to manufacture coins, in plumbing, dyes and chemical catalysts
