NASA's Perseverance Rover is on its way to Mars

The next Mars Rover mission had a successful launch and is on it's way to the Red Planet.

Named "Perseverance" this 3 meter, 1 ton robot will survey a dried lakebed for signs of ancient life.

Perseverance also brings along a new vehicle, a small dual-rotor drone, "Ingenuity" that will map the region from the sky.If all goes well, Perseverance will gather mineral samples over the next few years, and future missions will include a lander capable of collecting those samples and firing them back into orbit, where a waiting craft will grab them and return to Earth.All footage in this video is from NASA and JPL / Caltech.
