The Houston apartment complex where the landing page of the NASA Mars rover will be located is expected to feature a biofuel research lab, according to a report from Politico.
The landing page will be built at a property in Houston’s Lakeway neighborhood, and the space will be open to the public.
It will also feature a lounge, retail space, and a community room for tenants.
According to the report, a representative for the development company confirmed the plans to Politico on Monday.
The lander will visit the site on March 9 and then land on a site called Landing Page 3.
This landing site is an open field on a flat, flat-topped hill, which is ideal for rovers to conduct testing of various technologies, according the report.
A number of the apartments in the property include biofuel lab space and office space.
Lander’s lander would sample the surface of the lake in an attempt to sample methane and carbon dioxide that are trapped in the surface.
The site will also house research labs, which are intended to help NASA researchers find new ways to study Mars, the report said.
