Building a robotic vehicle that will eventually travel to another planet is a complicated undertaking. With just one NASA rover, Curiosity, currently roaming around on Mars after the death of Opportunity, the much-hyped Mars 2020 mission takes on even more significance.Getting it right means testing, tweaking, testing, tweaking, and then testing some more, and NASA just published a new behind-the-scenes look at the intense trial process the rover's on-board computers have to endure. Tucked away inside a cleanroom at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Spacecraft Assembly Facility, the 2020 mission's hardware was tasked with landing on a simulated Martian surface that exists only in the spacecraft's complex computer brain.The Mars 2020 mission will target the Jezero Crater on Mars as its landing site.

The ability of the brain to ignore extraneous visual information is critical to how we work and function, but the processes governing perception and attention are not fully understood. Scientists have long theorized that attention to a particular object can alter perception by amplifying certain neuronal activity and suppressing the activity of other neurons (brain ''noise''). Now, scientists have confirmed this theory by showing how too much background noise from neurons can interrupt focused attention and cause the brain to struggle to perceive objects.
