NASA Perseverance rover ready to explore the wilds of Mars


NASA's newest rover is carrying a helicopter in its belly all the way to Mars after its successful launch.

Mars will soon be welcoming another visitor from Earth. NASA has sent its Perseverance rover to collect samples, search for signs of past microbial life and even unleash an experimental helicopter.

Perseverance launched on July 30, 2020, kicking off a months-long journey through space. It is scheduled to arrive at the red planet early in 2021. Landing is a tense process, but if all goes well, Perseverance will join Curiosity as NASA's only functioning rovers on Mars.
