A small pile of pebbles is clogging up the Perseverance Mars rover's operations. .

The rover, which is collecting rock samples for eventual return to Earth, began to struggle on Dec.

29, after extracting a core from a rock the mission team nicknamed "Issole." According to a NASA blog, the problem occurred in the device that transfers the drill bit and sample out of the rover's drill arm and into a carousel inside the rover's chassis for storage.

The Perseverance rover landed on Mars on Feb.

The rover has equipment that can do some analysis on board, but the hope is that a future Mars mission will be able to retrieve and return the rover's rock samples to Earth. .

The rover's very first attempt to collect a rock sample failed

But the rover soon succeeded in collecting a pair of rock samples in quick succession.
