Percy’s One Year Anniversary On Mars

On February 18, 2021, the Perseverance rover safely touched down on Mars. Over the past year, Percy has more than 50 gigabytes of scientific data, sent over 100,000 images, set a new record for longest distance traveled in a single day (787 feet), and had collected 6 rock & atmosphere samples for future return missions to earth. Percy is currently on its two-week trip back to its landing-site to collect more rock samples. Afterwards, it will head towards a dried up river delta to get an up-close examination of the lake bed. Upon arrival, Percy will search for signs of ancient microbial life!
