Perseverance rover to land on Mars tomorrow!
is super exciting! Does anyone plan to watch the landing live?
One thing I think that is really neat is that there is a helicopter strapped
to the belly of the rover. That helicopter, Ingenuity, will attempt the
first powered flight on Mars (or any other planet!. Basically the Wright
Brothers flight attempt but on the red planet! You can see a cool simulation
of that here: https://mars.nasa.gov/technology/helicopter
I find these types of missions fascinating and it will be interesting to see
if the mission proves fruitful in finding habitability and testing oxygen
Keep your eyes on the skies,
