On Feb. 18, join us in welcoming our Perseverance Mars rover to its new home on Mars. After the entry into Mars’ atmosphere and descent to landing, it will touch down in a basin called Jezero Crater. The rover will search for signs of ancient microbial life & collect samples for future missions to return. It’s brought a friend to Mars as well – the Ingenuity Mars helicopter, a technology demonstration that will attempt the first-ever powered flight on another planet.
