Feb. 18: We’re Landing a Rover on Mars!


On February 18, 2021, the Perseverance Mars Rover will touch down on the Red Planet. The rover will seek signs of ancient life and collect samples of rock and regolith (broken rock and soil) for possible return to Earth.

Similar in size to a car, Perseverance is the heaviest rover we’ve ever sent to the surface of Mars, carrying a variety of out-of-this-world experiments that will help prepare us for future human exploration.

  1. This is geat. I can't believe I'm alive to witness this historical event. Congratulations to NASA and to all of us, of course, living at this very moment. Now, I wonder what will happen to the earthly microorganisms such as bacteria contained on the craft. I mean, introducing such unknown microorganisms to planet Mars should also be studied. Will these microorganisms able to withstand the atmosphere of the planet Mars? Will they evolve? I was also thinking that what if the craft brought earthly seeds or plants to the red planet, will these plants grow and survive there? Hmmm. I'm trying to work my brain here 😅
