Perseverance Rover Watch Party
Date(s) - Thursday, February 18
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join NASA Ambassadors and watch the live landing of the Perseverance Rover on the surface of Mars! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Mars 2020/Perseverance landing was delayed to February 18, 2021. Following in the path blazed by its fellow rovers Spirit and Opportunity, Perseverance will explore Mars to better understand its geology and to search for signs of ancient life. It will also pioneer the use of several new technologies including the delivery of a helicopter drone called Ingenuity. Register using the form below to join us via Zoom and ask questions of Moffat Library’s resident NASA ambassadors.
Or check out NASA’s February 18 livestream starting at 02:15 pm and explore the Perseverance Rover at your own pace over on NASA’s YouTube channel! The descent and landing itself will take place at approximately 03:30 pm.
