Today, engineers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory will attempt a feat that is terrifying and impressive in equal measures: Landing a rover on Mars. The Perseverance rover, along with its helicopter sidekick Ingenuity, has been traveling to Mars since summer last year.
Now, it’s set to arrive at the red planet and execute the extremely challenging landing maneuver that will allow it to touch down safely and begin its search for signs of ancient life.
