Take a moment to visit the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California
Attach the Remote Sensing Mast to Mars
2020 Rover in the clean room High Bay 1 of the Spacecraft Assembly Facility. Full
Integration of the mast – a process that involves the installation of science
Instrument Sensors, Electrical Wiring and Cash Register – Continued in
the following week, which ends on June 11th.

During the launch of Mars 2020
interplanetary cruise and its fast and fiery descent to the Martian surface,
The mast is stowed flat on the deck of the rover. Soon after putting the mast
(The top is more than 2.2 meters high) is raised to achieve a high result
Perch for the SuperCam, Mastcam-Z and Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer, as well as four
Navcam engineering cameras.

Mars 2020 will be launched in July from the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida
It will land at Jezero Crater on February 1

8, 2021.

First, the rover is equipped with a sample caching system that collects the data
Mars rock and soil samples and store them on the surface of the planet for
Return and return to Earth through subsequent missions. It will be Mars 2020 as well
the first spacecraft in the history of planetary exploration with this ability
to realign his touchdown point during the landing sequence –
Technology that could prove essential for future missions with a crew to the moon
Mars.

Accused of returning astronauts to the moon
2024, the Artemis moon exploration plans of NASA are published
build up a permanent human presence on and around the moon by 2028. We will use it
What we learn on the moon to prepare to send astronauts to Mars.

JPL creates and manages the operation of
the Mars 2020 Rover for the NASA Science Mission Directorate at the agency
Headquarters in Washington.
