Perseverance rover is having trouble

(ORDO NEWS) — Representatives of NASA on the official channel of the Perseverance rover on the social network Twitter reported that the rover was unable to hermetically seal the container with the sample after taking the 14th soil sample.

It is believed that this is a small problem, but until it is resolved, the rover will most likely stop collecting new samples.

As a reminder, the rover is collecting soil samples from the Red Planet in order to bring them to Earth in the future (a special Earth Return Orbiter mission due to take place in the next decade), where scientists will be able to examine the rocks using more advanced tools and methods than those available rover.
