MAH | Mission to Mars

July 28, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

We’re going to Mars!

NASA is about to launch a new rover, named Perseverance, to the Red Planet. We’ll go over the basics of this mission, including how the rover got named, when it’ll launch and how you can watch, when and where and how the rover will land on Mars, and what it’ll do once it gets there.
