NASA’s most-advanced Perseverance rover successfully touches down on Mars

National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on Thursday (local time) announced that its largest and most advanced rover has touched down on Mars.

 

The Perseverance rover reached Mars after covering 203-day journey traversing 293 million miles (472 million kilometers).

 

The rover is about the size of a car, the 2,263-pound (1,026-kilogram) robotic geologist and astrobiologist will undergo several weeks of testing before it begins its two-year science investigation of Mars’ Jezero Crater.

 

The touch down was confirmed at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California at 3:55 pm EST (local time).

 

Packed with groundbreaking technology, the Mars 2020 mission launched July 30, 2020, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida.

The Perseverance rover mission marks an ambitious first step in the effort to collect Mars samples and return them to Earth, according to an official statement.
