SAM was designed to address the present and past habitability of Mars by exploring molecular and elemental chemistry relevant to life. The SAM suite includes a Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer (QMS), a Gas Chromatograph (GC), and a Tunable Laser Spectrometer (TLS). The laser spectrometer is used to measure isotope abundances in the atmosphere. A timetable of SAM's atmospheric measurements is included below.
