NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover


Mission to Mars

Tristian Corona, Staff Writer

It’s been seven months since the rover Perseverance has set off on its course to Mars. The rover is expected to make landfall today sometime around noon. Perseverance will be the fifth rover to ever touch down on the Red Planet. It is tasked with searching for signs that microbial life may have lived on Mars billions of years ago. It will collect rock core samples in metal tubes, and future missions would return these samples to Earth for deeper study.
