NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover launch live updates: NASA is set to launch its Mars Perseverance Rover on July 30 at 17:20 IST from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. The main aim of the Mars Perseverance Rover is to seek signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for a possible return to Earth. The duration of the mission is expected to be at least one Mars year which is equivalent to 687 days on Earth.

The Mars Perseverance Rover is expected to land on Mars on February 18, 2021, after covering a distance of 300 million miles (482.8 million kms approximately). The landing site of the rover will be the Jezero Crater on the Red Planet. This is the third launch to Mars after China’s rover-orbiter combo and a United Arab Emirates orbiter launched last week.

“We don’t know if life existed there or not. But we do know that Mars at one point in its history was habitable,” NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine said on the eve of the launch.
