NASA has announced that they will be live streaming a Mars event, giving viewers a chance to get as close as possible to the red planet. This will be the first time ever that the event will be live streamed, according to CBS News.
The event will feature a rover landing on Mars, which will be a historic moment for NASA. The rover, named Perseverance, will be equipped with scientific instruments, enabling it to search for signs of ancient microbial life on the planet.
NASA scientists have spent years preparing for this moment, and they say that the Perseverance mission will be their most ambitious one yet. The rover will spend at least one Martian year, which is equal to about two Earth years, exploring the Jezero Crater on Mars.
The live stream will begin on February 18th, at 3:55 PM Eastern Time. The event will be hosted by NASA and will feature commentary from scientists and engineers on the team.
NASA says that this is an incredible opportunity for people to get as close to Mars as they will ever be able to, without leaving Earth. The live stream will provide a unique perspective on the planet and the rover’s mission, and will help to educate people about the importance of space exploration.
