NASA launched the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover LIVE on KARK 4 TODAY from Cape Canveral.
Once on Mars, the rover’s cameras, probes and drills will collect soil and rock samples for a future trip to Earth. It also has a microphone to hear what Mars sounds like. The rover will also be complete with a tiny drone that will fly just 15 feet off the ground to survey the landscape.
Scientists home this mission will find signs that microbial life did or did not exist.
