Perseverance is a Mars rover created by the Jet Propulsion Lab to be used in NASA’s Mars 2020 mission. It was launched on July 30, 2020, and is expected to reach Mars on February 18, 2021. The rover is supposed to study the surface of Mars at Jezero crater.
NASA's Curiosity Mars Rover took a selfie in an area of the Red Planet called Mary Anning, named after the British explorer.
After landing on Mars the next year, Perseverance will begin looking for signs of ancient microbial and micro-organic life on the planet that may have existed 3.8 billion years ago in its rocks and dirt.
