PIXL allows scientists to study where specific chemicals can be found within an area as small as a postage stamp.

PIXL, one of seven instruments aboard NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover, is equipped with light diodes circling its opening to take pictures of rock targets in the dark. Using artificial intelligence, PIXL relies on the images to determine how far away it is from a target to be scanned. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
