The Perseverance rover and the Ingenuity drone are already halfway to the Red Planet
As a reminder, Perseverance began its journey aboard the Atlas V rocket from United Launch Alliance on July 30 this year, which means that it needs as much as 7 months to reach its destination. Specifically, it is the Jezero Crater, which is located on the edge of Isidis Planitia, a giant basin north of the Mars equator. If all goes according to plan, then a new era of research for the Red Planet will begin, which may provide answers to many questions that plague us, including the most important ones about the traces of life. It should not be forgotten that the Mars Helicopter, a drone called Ingenuity, flew with it, which, if it works, will enable the first controlled flights over the surface of Mars.
