Mars 2020: The Red Planet’s Next Rover

NASA’s next Mars rover won’t just explore the Red Planet; it will, the space agency hopes, help a little bit of Mars make it to Earth a decade or so from now. 

Known as Perseverance, the upcoming rover will hunt for signs of habitable environments on Mars while searching for signs of past microbial life. The robotic traveler will also cache a series of samples that can be returned to Earth with a future mission.
