Perseverance: Nasa's Mars rover celebrates 1,000 days of science

Nasa says its Perseverance rover has essentially completed the job it was asked to do when it landed on Mars in February 2021.

Confirmation of ancient lake on Mars builds excitement for Perseverance rover's samples

If life ever existed on Mars, the Perseverance rover’s verification of lake sediments at the base of the Jezero crater reinforces the hope that traces might be found in the crater. 

Nasa's Perseverance produces breathable oxygen on Mars

Nasa's Perseverance rover has been able to generate 122g of breathable oxygen - enough to sustain a human for three hours on the Red Planet.

Perseverance Rover Finds Preserved Organic Matter on Mars

Researchers poring over imagery and data from the Perseverance rover on Mars have found evidence of organic molecules in the planet’s Jezero Crater, potentially providing evidence of the planet’s carbon cycles and its ability to host life.

Perseverance Rover Discovers Possible Organic Compounds on Mars

Rock samples from the Jezero crater analyzed by NASA's Perseverance Mars rover show evidence of liquid water and signatures that could be organic compounds. 

NASA's Mars Perseverance rover finds hints of microbial life

NASA scientists said Thursday the Mars Perseverance rover found biologically-interesting rocks in an ancient lake bed that could indicate microbial life existed on the red planet billions of years ago.

NASA Can Now Reliably Produce a Tree's Worth of Oxygen on Mars

A machine called MOXIE, stowed away on NASA’s Perseverance rover, can reliably convert carbon dioxide into a small tree’s worth of oxygen. During various tests, MOXIE steadily breathed in Martian atmosphere and breathed out at least six grams of oxygen an hour.

Rover confirms existence of ancient Mars lake and river delta

The first research paper from Perseverance rover team was published lately. It shows that Jezero Crater on Mars was probably the site of some violent floods.

Perseverance has Detected Over 300 Dust Devils and Vortices on Mars

Other rovers have also experience dust devils, but Jezero crater, Perseverance’s landing site, seems to have a high occurrence of dust devils.

Mars Helicopter Succeeds in Historic First Flight

Monday, NASA's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter became the first aircraft in history to make a powered, controlled flight on another planet. The flight was a success.

First audio recordings from Mars Perseverance rover

NASA’s Perseverance Rover that landed on Mars last month has beamed back historic audio recorded on the surface of the Red Planet.

NASA rover reaches Mars in search for signs of past life

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.

NASA, ULA Launch Perseverance Rover to Mars

NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is on its way to the Red Planet to search for signs of ancient life and collect samples to send back to Earth.
