#OnThisDay 1972: "This luxury detached flying saucer, so ideal for the average Martian with a wife and two kids." Nationwide visited a house that looked more like a home for a Gallifreyan than a human.
Pull out your red-and-blue 3D glasses: Ingenuity's latest flight, at its lowest altitude ever, has returned a three-dimensional tableau of the Martian landscape, including one big rock.
Historic first! #Perseverance Mars rover collected its 1st pair of Martian rock samples, which may provide insights about the planet’s ancient climate & habitability. Visit to learn more about ’s memory, RF & p #Infineonwer #radhard solutions for . #space

“Mind-bottling, isn't it?” The blades of glory, aka rotor blades of the #MarsHelicopter , have been unlocked and are ready for testing. Next, we’ll do a slow-speed spin-up of the blades for the first time on the Martian surface.
We’re in the home stretch. The #MarsHelicopter has lowered all four legs and is in position to touch down on the Martian surface. Once it’s fully ready, @NasaPersevere will release it gently to the surface.
After 203 days and 300 million miles, our @NasaPersevere landed on Mars at 3:55 p.m. EST on Feb. 18. After spending some time checking out its systems, it'll be rolling across the Red Planet, looking for signs of ancient Martian life.
And so, the journey begins… With today’s launch of @NasaPersevere , we begin another historic mission of exploration. Our #CountdownToMars continues with Perseverance landing on the Martian surface on Feb. 18, 2021. More:
