19th of February 2021: Yesterday NASA managed to land the first-ever helicopter, Ingenuity, along with a rover called Perseverance, on Mars. The landing vehicle took off with the helicopter in a rocket from Cape Canaveral in Florida on July the 30th 2020, powered by solar panels and batteries and possesses 4 carbon-fibre rotors which it uses to propel itself. Perseverance landed to the north of Mars’ equator, in a sector of the planet called the Jezero Crater. China plans to land a rover in a nearby crater in May. Perseverance is now in the process of drilling in Mars’ surface to extract rocks. Whether this event is real or not can always be questioned, as the landing on the moon has been. Although water has recently been discovered on Mars, temperatures can reach -90°C (-130°F) and the level of gravity on the red planet is 62% lower than that of earth. City Hall buildings have been lit up in red in the cities of San Francisco and Los Angeles, where part of the project was worked on, to celebrate the rover’s landing.
