Another feat of human perseverance
When the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover
Landed on the surface of Mars on Feb 18,2021
To look for habitability, seek biosignatures, cashing samples and
test oxygen production from the Martian atmosphere.
Equipped with new entry, descent, and landing (EDL) technologies, such as Terrain-Relative Navigation (TRN),
That allows the rover to detect and avoid hazardous terrain
By diverting around it during its descent through the Martian atmosphere.
Rocks and soil samples would be collected and stored that may later be retrieved and ferry back to Earth by future missions for further research.
It is not only digging about the traces of life in the past but more about exploring the possibility of human habitation in future.
If Mars ever get habitated by the humans, will it be in safe hands?
It is not only about perseverance, but also about preservation.
