Introduction: Recent orbital and landed missions, OMEGA on Mar Express and two Mars Exploration rovers [1-5] have found Mg-sulfates on Mars. In order to further advance our knowledge on the hydrologic history of Mars and to evaluate its potential for hosting life, in situ identification of hydration states of magnesium sulfates, as well as the Ca-, Fe-, hydrated sulfates, will be crucial for future landing missions. Because of the large daily temperature variation at the surface of Mars [>100K… CONTINUE READING
