Mission Overview: NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover

 

NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover is heading to the Red Planet to search for signs of ancient life, collect samples for future return to Earth and help pave the way for human exploration. The rover will carry with it several technology demonstrations including a helicopter, which will attempt humanity’s first powered flight on another planet. Perseverance has a new set of science instruments and the ability to “self-drive” on the Martian surface.
The Perseverance rover is scheduled to launch from Space Launch Complex 41 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center as early as July 30. It is set to land at Mars’ Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021.
