It’s 2020 on Earth. Going to Mars sounds awesome! Forever!
The Rover “Perseverance” blasted off from Cape Canaveral, at 7:50 am, Thursday morning.
It takes 7 months to get to MARS, and The Rover is scheduled to return in 2031 with samples from the planet. Translation: We’re looking for LIFE on MARS!
The US is still the only country to ever land on Mars.
Perseverance has its own twitter account, and is tweeting updates: @NASApersevere
