Mars Perseverance landing on 18 Feb

Post by TUPF »

It's do or die for a successful landing at 3:48PM Eastern/2:48PM Eastern today. Very intricate procedure using a tether to drop the SUV sized rover from a hovering mother craft. Space geeked.
After you've been on fire under Arctic pack ice everything else is a walk in the park.
