Sometimes you don’t.

But first the news:

Did you know we’re about to send another rocket to Mars?

In two days, maybe.

Within the next month, fo sho.


Quick Facts

  • Mission Name: Mars 2020
  • Rover Name: Perseverance
  • Main Job: The Perseverance rover will seek signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return to Earth.
  • Launch Window: July 30 – Aug. 15, 2020
  • Launch Location: Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida
  • Landing: Feb. 18, 2021
  • Landing Site: Jezero Crater, Mars

And then you can see videos of some people who worked on this mission and I’m so totally SQUEE about NASA-JPL engineer Heather Bottom.

And then there’s NASA-JPL scientist Moogega Stricker!

And Deputy Project Scientist at NASA-JPL Katie Stack Morgan!

How can you NOT be so totally OVER THE MOON?!?
