NASA is swapping out its Sample Fetch Rover for two helicopters, similar to Ingenuity, to serve as backups to the Perseverance Rover.
We take a look at some of the details in the first set of science images to be released by the JWST science team.
NASA has been scouting out an area on Mars from spacecrafts in orbit. This is the first time the team is getting an up close look thanks to Perseverance.
NASA is preparing for the day it’ll turn off the InSight Lander’s instruments due to the dust slowly covering the robot’s solar panels.
Perseverance’s 70.5 foot wide parachute helped the rover land on Mars after making its way through the Martian atmosphere.
According to NASA, it’s the most zoomed-in and highest frame-rate observation of a Phobos solar eclipse ever taken on the Martian surface.
DEEDS is designed to survive in extreme environments, like the surface of the Moon or Mars, where temperatures can reach -180º C.
NASA’s OSAM-1 mission aims to be the first ever to refuel a satellite not designed to be serviced using SPIDER.
The interactive map tracks Perseverance’s path from its landing site at the northern end of its route, to its more recent locations.
The Perseverance rover was sent to Mars to look for signs of ancient life and collect rock samples to be returned to Earth.
Space ROS is a version of ROS 2 meant to meet verification and validation requirements aerospace software must meet before being used in a mission.
Leshin returns to NASA from WPI, where she served at the first woman president of the university since 2014.
Pebbles became lodged in Perseverance when it was extracting a sample from a Martian rock nicknamed Issole.
NASA engineers used a robotic arm with a hexapod to precisely place each segment of the telescope’s mirror.

Improving the Soil Property and Object Classification will save NASA scientists time when planning routes for their rovers and in finding important formations.
NASA’s VIPER rover will land at the Moon’s South Pole in 2023 to map and explore the region’s surface and subsurface. The Moon’s South Pole is one of the coldest areas in the solar system. No prior missions to the Moon’s surface have explored it.
Perseverance’s Sampling and Caching System uses a rotary-percussive drill and a hollow coring bit at the end of its 7-foot-long robotic arm to extract samples slightly thicker than a pencil.
Adaptive locomotive modality, or the ability to move in different ways, is integral to extreme terrain exploration on the Moon and Mars.
NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover completed its first drive using its auto-navigation feature, which allows it to avoid rocks and other hazards without input from engineers back on Earth.
