To be launched in July. The latest Rover/s I believe there are two
sections to this one, to be released separately on the descent to the surface.

Let's hope for some exciting revelations from this package.
Ron.

Perseverance will also carry the experimental Mars Helicopter, so we should hopefully get some amazing aerial drone-style imagery of the Martian surface.

Yeah! Really looking forward to that, as you say, we'll see the surface from a whole new perspective.

This is one of the space highlights of the year for me. My name's landing on Mars.

Just imagine, once terraforming is complete, and all the rovers are housed in the Mars Exploration Museum, a Martian will ask one day, 'I wonder what Scouse Space Cadet* was like?' Ok I know, I know, but we're allowed to dream! 🙄

I watched it on the NASA feed. Couldn’t quite believe how emotional I became. I can’t imagine what people felt watching the Apollo launches. I will be following this mission for years I am sure.
