Perseverance, the largest, most advanced rover NASA has sent to another world, touched down on Mars yesterday. The $2.4 billion rover arrived at Jezero Crater, a basin that scientists say was once flooded with liquid water.
Since 2019, NASA's InSight's probe, called the “mole,” has been attempting to burrow into the Martian surface. Martian soil’s tendency to clump deprived the mole of the friction it needs to hammer itself to a sufficient depth.
To date, SpaceX has launched over 800 Starlink satellites. Now SpaceX has invited participants to take part in a public beta test but on one condition - participants must acknowledge that Mars is a “free planet.”
Groups like Mars Habitat are dedicated to conducting simulated missions in analog environments. The lessons learned will not only prepare people to live and work in space but foster ideas for sustainable living here on Earth.
