Was there once life on Mars? Our Perseverance rover aims to find out! On Thursday, July 30, watch our new robotic astrobiologist launch on a seven-month journey to the Red Planet. Launching on board will be the most sophisticated set of tools ever sent to Mars, with the hope Perseverance will uncover the planet’s secrets. Tune in to our live launch broadcast starting at 7 a.m. EDT. Teams are targeting 7:50 a.m. EDT for liftoff of Perseverance atop United Launch Alliance’s Atlas V rocket from Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

About this Event

NASA’s next mission to Mars—the Mars 2020 Perseverance mission—will send the most sophisticated rover ever to the Red Planet, with a name that embodies NASA’s passion for taking on and overcoming challenges. After landing in February 2021, this robotic astrobiologist will address key questions about the potential for life on Mars, what the environment was like billions of years ago, and seek signs of ancient microbial life that might be preserved in the unique rocks of Jezero Crater. Perseverance will use its drill to collect rock and soil samples and set them aside for a future mission to potentially return to Earth. It will also demonstrate new technologies that pave the way for human exploration beyond the Moon. The Mars Helicopter, Ingenuity, will ride to Mars attached to the belly of the rover. The helicopter will be a first-time test of powered flight on Mars.

As NASA prepares for this exciting mission, we intend to bring the excitement of launch to you! Please join us virtually.
