NASA Mars 2020 Rover Perseverance Launch Video : Full Details in 4k

This is another interesting video by Science Loop on Youtube. It's great to watch NASA's Perseverance rover (2020 Rover) and Ingenuity (Mars Helicopter) launch by Atlas 5 (V) Rocket from Florida Cape Canaveral. It is just starting its journey to the Red planet (Mars).

The Mars 2020 mission and its components are fascinating. Mars 2020 is a Mars rover mission by NASA's Mars Exploration Program that includes the Perseverance rover and the Ingenuity helicopter drone. It was launched on 30 July 2020 at 11:50 UTC. It will touch down in Jezero crater on Mars on 18 February 2021.

NASA 's Perseverance rover (2020 Rover) is the most advanced Mars Rover and Ingenuity (Mars Helicopter) is the first ever Helicopter which will fly outside of the Earth. Amazingly, it carries 23 cameras in total, and two microphones. 19 cameras in total are included in the Perseverance rover.

Mars Helicopter Ingenuity is a robotic helicopter that is planned to be used to test the technology to scout interesting targets on Mars, and help plan the best driving route for future Mars rovers. The small drone helicopter is planned for deployment in 2021 from the Perseverance rover as part of the Mars 2020 mission. It is expected to fly up to five times during its 30-day test campaign, early in the rover's mission, as it is primarily a technology demonstration.

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.

Humanity's most sophisticated rover launched with the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter at 7:50 a.m. EDT (4:50 a.m. PDT) Friday on a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket from Space Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

"With the launch of Perseverance, we begin another historic mission of exploration," said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. "This amazing explorer's journey has already required the very best from all of us to get it to launch through these challenging times. Now we can look forward to its incredible science and to bringing samples of Mars home even as we advance human missions to the Red Planet. As a mission, as an agency, and as a country, we will persevere."

  1. Thanks Igorbnews for sharing this. ��

    1. Thanks, Science Loop. It is amazing that NASA flawlessly launched its most ambitious Mars rover yet. The Perseverance rover is on track to reach the red planet in February and begin exploring a crater that held water 3.5 billion years ago.

      The Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter are en route to Mars. The quest is to find ancient signs of life. This is exciting. A global pandemic could not stop this launch.
