Last week, NASA launched its most ambitious effort ever to answer questions about life on Mars. Meet the high-tech rover named Perseverance.
We took "early rise" a bit literally! #OTD in 2007, the Phoenix spacecraft experienced a successful liftoff for the beginning of its journey toward Mars. The launch occurred at Launch Pad 17-A at 5:26 a.m. EDT, sending the Delta-II rocket on its way in the dark morning sky.
We are going to the Moon — to stay. We will build sustainable infrastructure to support missions to Mars and beyond. This is what we’re building. This is what we’re training for. We are going. #Moon2024
Scientists & engineers launched “InSight” from Earth (a moving platform) across 300million miles to arrive where Mars (a moving target) will be seven months later, landing safely to do geophysics at the Martian equator. And you have a problem listening to us about climate change?
