Follow along as NASA launches the Mars 2020 Mission, perhaps the most ambitious hunt yet for signs of ancient life on Mars.
The spacecraft will blaze into the Martian atmosphere at some 12,000 miles per hour and attempt to lower the Perseverance Rover in the rocky Jezero Crater, home to a dried-up river delta scientists think could have harbored life. Perseverance will comb the area for signs of life and collect samples for possible return to Earth. Traveling onboard is a four-pound helicopter that will conduct a series of test flights-the first on another planet.
During its journey, Perseverance will also test technology designed to produce oxygen from the Martian atmosphere, in hopes that the gas could be used for fuel-or for humans to breathe-on future missions.

    They are bullshitting around and playing hide and go seek.If life exists on mars its not going to introduce itself to strange visitors,and from another world are you kidding me.All those people at NASA getting excited about what,the whole universe has rocks and damn dirt and you have strange looking rocks on earth.When you see something moving up there or a strange structure of some sort,then we can jump for joy .But right now NASA is acting like a bunch of crazed kids from the city that just seen animals in the country and country life for the first time.

    First of all the scientist that are sending these rovers to mars are approaching this exploration of Mars at a wrong approach.They are taking baby steps and wasting to much time and tax payers money with this elementary level of exploration.They must take a more aggressive approach and stop crawling like a baby in it's attempt to explore Mars.Take an adult approach and stop approaching like a infant filled with curiosity uncertainty.Like the bible say seek and you shall find.

    the government has been teleporting certain people there since the 70S they went as far as sending kids first because they are to scared to lie but an adult can lie and not say the truth think about it a kid getting sent to mars where ther is a base but the government sent rovers to remote areas like the sahara desert here a rover can only go so fast and mars is a big planet and sent these rovers to make it look like its a place we can live on "News flash" we are already there and dont need to spend our money and time risking lives on a 6 month trip when we can be there in 15 min dont belive me look up "you need to here this prepare your self they tried keeping it hidden" by anonymous official here on you tube!!! and see for your self two generations of lies they been feeding us probably more pandemic is nothing compaired to this bs. judge for your self .!!!

      Me too, but I'd appreciate a little more political & health management industries appreciation here on Earth. In my opinion, intentional chronic under/transient-staffing, spine safety, & other PPE mismanagement are the hospital industry's main shortcomings, and why I will retire when the current legitimate, CoViD related under-staffing abates. Please don't get very sick. I am confident that the USA will lose another half-million family members to foolish disregard of the epidemic over the next year or two.

    Sadly the retrieval part of the mission will likely never happen, as it relies on participation by other countries. The Biden administration is currently destroying our relationships with other countries around the world, so even if the U.S. still exists by then, and that itself seems unlikely, I doubt we will be able to count on any help from other countries. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see the entire program canceled in the near future, while the rover is still fully operational.

    When cameras here on earth are able to function properly en below 30 degree weather, I will trust that nasa has been to mars. When I can close the door to my wifi router room without losing any of the signal, then I will trust that nasa is able to transmit footage from 300+ days away. When a cellular phone has a signal deep en the forest here on earth, then I will trust that nasa can transmit radio frequencies from 300+ days away. When cellular phone calls no longer drop here on earth, then I will trust that nasa is able to maintain upload and download speeds from 300+ days away. When electrical outages no longer exist, then I will trust that nasa is able to communicate with a rover 300+ days away. When video camera footage that is needed to solve crimes no longer mysteriously disappear or do not record at all, then I will trust that nasa is communicating with a rover 300+ days away. If nasa has technology that can hold a strong signal to infinity and beyond, then the people should have that same exact technology, no excuses.
