New Delhi: US Space Agency NASA’s Perseverance Rover is going to touch Mars (NASA’s Perseverance Rover is going to land). Earlier, the UAE’s Hope Campaign and China’s Tianwen-1 have also entered the orbit of Mars. Of these, Tianwen will also land a lander and a rover on Mars, but then Perseverance is important which will also carry out some important experiments for future human missions and life expectancy. NASA scientists are very excited about this campaign.
4th Generation Rover
It is worth noting that even before this, NASA’s Perseverance Rover is going to land has landed on Mars. Perseverance is NASA’s fourth generation Mars rover. Earlier in 1997, Mars Global Surveyor was sent to Mars for the first time in the Pathfinder campaign. After this, Spirit and Opportunity were sent to Mars in the year 2012, in the year of CURICITY.
They’ve lit up at @flyLAXairport as I come in for a landing – on Mars, that is. I’ll be “wheels down” on the Red Planet in less than 16 hours.

This campaign by Perseverance Rover is special in many ways. This is an ambitious project of NASA. It will land on the most dangerous adjacent Jezero Crater on Mars, where once there was water. The major goal of persistence is to find evidence of signs of life in the Jajiro crater. It is speculated that Mars once had the same life as it was at the beginning of Earth’s life. If this was indeed the case, then it is expected that persistence will be able to find signs of fossils or life.
Oxygen production efficiency
The main objective of Perseverance Rover is to investigate the circumstances on the red planet, how friendly they are for humans. Let us tell you that for this, the surveillance will also do many experiments on the surface of Mars. The most important of these include the use of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere of Mars and producing oxygen there. In the future, oxygen production is very important for NASA’s human operations.
Tune in to see what to expect from the most difficult Mars landing ever attempted. I’m the most massive and technologically advanced rover to date, and one day from the most harrowing part of my trip: Entry Descent and Landing. https://t.co/UvlXztaw29 #CountdownToMars pic.twitter.com/3cKETTlQM1

Water exploration and investigation
The US space agency is aiming to send manned missions to Mars in the next decade. NASA will also do a lot of experiments through persistence. Apart from this, life signs and liquid water searches and investigations related to them are also included. Its Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA) will study the weather of Mars. The climate of Mars can be studied with the information of its temperature, air pressure, wind, radiation, dust, etc.
Mars soil samples
NASA’s persistence will collect soil soil samples. After this, these samples will be brought to Earth under a second expedition in which the study of these samples in collaboration with the European Space Agency will give information about the possibility of life on Mars and its related history. NASA will do the work of lifting samples from Mars, which it will take to the ESA vehicle which will take the samples to Earth.
Three countries together on mars
The right time to send expedition to Mars is when Mars and Earth come very close to each other, this happens once every 26 months. This is the first time that three countries have gone on expedition together on Mars.
