If all goes according to plan, we will be able to witness quite an exciting thing on Thursday.
NASA’s newest rover, Perseverance, has been on its way to Mars since last summer, and it is also heading for the red planet not alone, but with a helicopter named Ingenuity.
Soon, exactly on February 18th, and Thursday, the big journey will end, and if all goes well, we will be able to watch live as the two structures of the space agency will hopefully land on the surface of the planet without any problems.
The maneuver will not be easy, as the marcher will have to slow down from a speed of 12,000 mph to a pace with which he can already land comfortably, but even so, he will need, among other things, a parachute for the stunt. Plus, the engineers won’t have an easy time either, as there’s a 20-minute delay in communication, which means they can’t even help land directly.
If all goes according to plan, the marcher will land on Hungarian February 18 at about 9:55 p.m., but NASA will begin live coverage of the big event from 8 a.m., which can be watched on YouTube. You’ll also find livestream below where they’ll be able to keep an eye on things, so on Thursday you’ll just have to look back at this news.
