[WATCH] NASA's Perseverance rover makes historic landing on Mars

Watch an epic journey unfold on Thursday, February 18 2021 as NASA's Perseverance rover landed on Mars.

To reach the surface of the Red Planet, the rover has to survive the harrowing final phase known as Entry, Descent, and Landing.

Only then can the rover – the biggest, heaviest, cleanest, and most sophisticated six-wheeled robot ever launched into space – search Jezero Crater for signs of ancient life and collect samples that will eventually be returned to Earth.
