NASA’s Perseverance rover has successfully landed on Mars! It is ready to explore and learn all about its new environment. Perseverance was given its name by NASA competition winner, 13-year-old Alexander Mather from the USA. The rover will spend two years studying Mars, searching for signs of past life and collecting samples from the surface.
