NASA’s Perseverance Rover is on its way to Mars

The next Mars Rover mission had a successful launch and is on it’s way to the Red Planet. Named “Perseverance”, this 3 meter, 1 ton robot will survey a dried lakebed for signs of ancient life. Perseverance also brings along a new vehicle, a small dual-rotor drone, “Ingenuity”, that will map the region from the sky. If all goes well, Perseverance will gather mineral samples over the next few years, and future missions will include a lander capable of collecting those samples and firing them back into orbit, where a waiting craft will grab them and return to Earth. Learn more about “Perseverance” in this intriguing and inspiring video.
