Since landing inside the 45 kilometer (28 mile) wide Jezero Crater on February 18, 2021, Persy has been busy observing the Mars environment, capturing images, and collecting samples for future retrieval. As we reach the first anniversary of Perseverance’s landing, members of the Mars Mission team will give a rover roundup, outlining how Persy has spent its first year on Mars, and the ways it’s moving toward key mission objectives, such as developing a better understanding of Mars’ astrobiology, including seeking signs of ancient microbial life.
