Perseverance is a robotic scientist that will search for signs of past microbial life on Mars and characterize the planet’s climate and geology. It will also collect rock and soil samples for future return to Earth and pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet. The mission is scheduled to launch from Space Launch Complex 41 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida at 9:15 a.m. EDT July 20. It will land at Mars’ Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021.

  1. You won't acknowledge what has already been discovered! And you fail to report this to mainstream media as they are silent on it! You are a loser scumbag operative agenda driven criminal!

  2. I Just hope Elon gets people there first….Otherwise , If and when they do find something there we'll never know…(N)ever (A) (S)traight (A)nswer…..

  3. Need your help, NASA!
    From a Marine vet, asking all "we" millions of other Veterans, to get organized, to provide a backbone, (for other folks to cling to), for a contingencies management system, for consolidating and coordinating resources, instituted into a non-profit, liaison / logistics corp, built on a matrix organizational structure!

    Call it:
    "Disaster and Emergency Services"
    ….. Support …
    …. Systems …
    ….. ( Projects and Missions )

    FEMA recommends that all communities maintain secondary EOCs (operations centers)

    "We" can use this…
    To build a…
    "manual back-up system"

    "A well regulated [contingencies management system] being necessary to the [national security posture] of a free state, the right to [employ a Swiss type system won't be] infringed!"

    To mechanize and empower demos-kratos within a republic!

    Vets are civilians, who happen to have military experience and training, that's going to waste, and we could change that, quickly!

    For most Vets, that oath rules our lives… for life…!

    Vets have proven themselves, honorable and trustworthy, to be "Semper Fidelis" to our Queen… Lady Liberty, and Her ways!
    ( We will select our leadership, from the bottom up!!!)
    "We" needs neighborhood incident management!
    Mitigation, preparedness, response, recovery!
    NCB Warfare Recon:
    … Detect, contain, monitor, decon!

    Vets are a good place to start, to draw all others folks in… Kids… Mom's… Dad's… Elders…!

    [From my 40+ yrs in "civil-defense", and found a way to do this, so it will be easy and perpetual!]

    "We" need a site, and such (made by you educated / experienced folk), to help us connect… Quick!!!

    Standing by!

  4. It's a shame how NASA has kept so many facts from the people who are providing the funds to do what they are doing! How about releasing photos and documents without brushing out images? N – never A S – straight A – answer!

  5. hey, @NASA, if its tons and mars heli is 4lbs, why not send two helis? double production for just 4lbs more. cut risk in half of a early accident w a delicate heli bc u have a spare that only cost u 4lbs.
