Feb. 18: Our Perseverance Rover & Ingenuity Helicopter Arrive at Mars

On Feb. 18, join us in welcoming our Perseverance Mars rover to its new home on Mars. After the entry into Mars’ atmosphere and descent to landing, it will touch down in a basin called Jezero Crater. The rover will search for signs of ancient microbial life & collect samples for future missions to return. It’s brought a friend to Mars as well – the Ingenuity Mars helicopter, a technology demonstration that will attempt the first-ever powered flight on another planet.
