The spacecraft that will carry NASA’s Perseverance rover to Mars is examined prior to an acoustic test in the Environmental Test Facility at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California. The image was taken on April 11th, 2019. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
This photo shows a test of the mortar system that will be used on Feb. 18th, 2021, to deploy the parachute for NASA’s Perseverance rover. The test took place in November 2019 at a facility in central Washington. (NASA/JPL-Caltech)
