    NASA has chosen United Launch Alliance (ULA) to launch the 1,025 kg (2,260 pound) rover on its six month long journey to the Red Planet. The overall mission has been divided into four segments by NASA: Launch, Cruise/Approach, Entry-Descent-Landing (EDL) and Surface Operations.

    ULA’s Atlas V 541 (more on what that means later) will lift off from SLC-41, CCAFS at 9:35 am EDT with the Perseverance rover in its 5 meter fairing. Climbing to an initial orbit of 270 km (167 miles), the Centaur upper stage will then boost the rover towards Mars. It is important to note that there is a one month period where the position of Earth and Mars are aligned perfectly for a transfer. After this period ends, the teams will have to wait for about 26 months before a new opportunity opens up. However, NASA has expressed interest in a contingency plan after the window is up.

    Surprisingly, this six month phase has a lot more to it. The only part of the spacecraft left is Perseverance which is enclosed in its aeroshell. This shell acts as protection, but also hosts the power and course correction propulsion systems. Throughout this time, mandatory health and communications checks will be performed by NASA’s specially trained team of engineers and mission specialists. Towards the end of this phase, preparations will begin for the Entry, Descent and Landing (EDL).
    Also known as the “7 minutes of terror”, this phase of Perseverance’s flight can be some of the most nerve wracking for the team and space fans. Due to the fact that Mars is so far away from Earth and communications are limited to the speed of light, the transmission signals can take about 20 minutes to reach Earth. That’s a 40 minutes round-trip. All the data that the teams see happened 20 minutes ago. By the time we see the spacecraft enter the Martian atmosphere it could already have landed, or crashed.
    The payload consists of the Perseverance rover and the attached drone, Ingenuity. The Perseverance rover is by far the most complex and most technologically advanced piece of hardware to travel to another planet. Similar in shape/size to the former, still operating, Curiosity rover, launched on November 26, 2011, Perseverance is only 126 kg (278 pounds) heavier and 13 cm (5 inches) longer. Taking a big step up from the Curiosity rover, Perseverance will have similar, but much more advanced instruments focused on sample collection for future return to Earth. Let’s talk about some of the major instruments on the rover.

    A prime science goal of NASA’s Perseverance rover is to search for biosignatures, markers left behind in Martian rocks by microbial life forms, assuming they existed. But for the first time, if all goes according to plan, scientists will be able to analyze rock samples gathered by Perseverance in modern laboratories on Earth.
    This is the first time in history where NASA has dedicated a mission to what we call astrobiology, the search for life,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

    “We’re doing transformative science,” said Matt Wallace, the Mars 2020 mission’s deputy project manager at JPL. “Really, for the first time, we’re looking for signs of life on another planet, and for the first time we’re going to collect samples that we hope will be part of the first sample return from another planet.”

    But the scientific payoff to that elusive question will have to wait at least a decade, once samples drilled from Martian rocks by the Perseverance rover come back to Earth. The rover itself carries instrumentation to help scientists choose which rocks to sample, but will not have the ability to confirm on its own whether life ever existed on Mars.

    “The mission objectives of our effort are to explore the geology of our landing site, to look for signs of biosignatures from the past,” said Adam Steltzner, chief engineer on the Mars 2020 mission at NASA’s. “We are not a life detection mission. We are looking for signs of past life on the surface of mars. Also, signatures that mars was habitable, and to the degree that is still habitable, where it might be habitable.

  • Mars launch: NASA sends Perseverance rover to space


    (CNN) The Perseverance rover and its Ingenuity helicopter are finally on the journey to Mars. The spacecraft carrying the rover and helicopter successfully launched to Mars Thursday morning aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V 541 rocket from Cape Canaveral, Florida at 7:50 a.m. ET. The team in the control center at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory confirmed acquisition of signal from the spacecraft shortly after 9 a.m. ET. This signifies that JPL's deep space network has locked on to the spacecraft, which is on its journey to Mars, said Omar Baez, launch manager at NASA's Launch Services Program. Students Alex Mather and Vaneeza Rupani , who named the rover and its accompanying helicopter during two national contests earlier this year, were present for the launch. I'm exceptionally excited about what we're about to do because we're going to launch Mars 2020 with the Perseverance robot, said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine during a press briefing at Kennedy Space Center. But there is so much more going on here. This is the first time in history where we're going to Mars with an explicit mission to find life on another world -- ancient life on Mars. The Mars 2020 mission launch occurs after nearly a decade of hard work and planning by thousands of engineers, scientists and specialists at NASA centers across the country and their commercial partners. During the final stages of mission preparation, teams had to manage the difficulties of the coronavirus pandemic. I really just cannot say enough about how incredible this team was, said Michael Watkins, director of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. They really knuckled down and completed this on schedule and we are ready to go. NASA really came together as a family and really it's just been a surprisingly smooth experience given all the troubles with Covid. As many at NASA have said, the rover truly lives up to its name. A second brain on the rover will help Perseverance to land in what would have been an impossible site before, strewn with hazards and obstacles. This Terrain Relative Navigation instrument will help Perseverance autonomously determine the safest place to land itself. Once on the surface of Mars, that computer will help the rover to think while driving. The rover will use a suite of new scientific instruments to explore Jezero Crater, the site of an ancient lake and river delta on Mars. The lake existed between 3.5 billion and 4 billion years ago when Mars was wetter, warmer and habitable. Perseverance will search for signs of ancient microbial life that may have once existed on Mars during this time. It will collect and cache samples of rock cores and soil to be retrieved and returned to Earth by future planned missions. They will be the first Martian samples, apart from Martian meteorites, to be returned to Earth. The samples are expected back on Earth by 2031 at the earliest, due to the complicated nature of the missions that will need to retrieve th

  • Nasas Perseverance Mars rover has been attached to the top of the rocket for Red Planet Mars


    Nasa Mars rover Perseverance is attached to rocket.
    Nasa's Perseverance Mars rover has been attached to the top of the rocket that will send it toward the Red Planet.

    The nosecone containing the rover and other spacecraft elements have been fixed to an Atlas V rocket at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida.

    The robot rover will search for signs of past life on the Red Planet.

    Perseverance is scheduled to launch on 30 July at the earliest and will land in Jezero Crater near the Martian equator in February 2021.

    In addition to scouting for signs of past biology, the mission also carries a drone-like helicopter that will demonstrate powered flight in the Martian atmosphere.

    On Tuesday 7 July, a 60-tonne hoist on the roof of the Vertical Integration Facility at Cape Canaveral's Space Launch Complex 41 lifted the nose cone 39m (129ft) to the top of the United Launch Alliance vehicle.

    There, engineers made the physical and electrical connections that will remain between the booster and spacecraft until about 50 to 60 minutes after launch, when the two are pyrotechnically separated and Perseverance is sent on its way.
    John McNamee, project manager for the mission at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, said the mating had been special because there are so many people who contributed to this moment.

    He added: To each one of them I want to say, 'we got here together, and we'll make it to Mars the same way'.

    The targeted launch date has been pushed back three times, first to 20 July, then to 22 July and later to 30 July.

    The launch window extends to the 15 August.

  • NASA launches robotic rover to search for past Martian life


    NASA has launched its new Mars rover Perseverance from Florida's Cape Canaveral.

  • China Launches Mars Mission in New Space Challenge to U.S.


    China launched its Tianwen-1 probe to Mars on Thursday that ramps up the nation’s challenge to NASA’s dominance in space, embarking on its most ambitious space mission yet.

    A Chinese-made rocket took off from Hainan Island carrying the Tianwen-1 probe, the People’s Daily said on its Twitter account, on the initial leg of its seven-month journey to Earth’s neighbor, traveling 3 miles per second as the program tries to make China a space superpower. Last year, it became the first nation to land a probe on the far side of the moon.

    “Before 2030, China will land on Mars, take samples on Mars, and return, which has never been realized by human beings before,” said Ouyang Ziyuan, a Chinese Academy of Sciences academician and first chief scientist of China’s lunar probe project, according to the People’s Daily.

    “China has the ability to fly further and we will continue our exploration,” Ouyang said.

    Thursday’s liftoff of the Long March-5 Y4 marks the second of three international missions to Mars scheduled for this month. On July 20, the United Arab Emirates launched the Hope Probe orbiter from a Japanese island. On July 30, NASA plans to send the Perseverance rover on its way to the Jezero Crater, near the shoreline of a Martian lake that disappeared billions of years ago.

    NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine welcomed China’s mission.

    “With today’s launch, China is on its way to join the community of international scientific explorers at Mars,” he said in a message on Twitter.

    “Safe travels Tianwen-1!” he wrote.

    Mars is a destination now because its orbit is closer to Earth, a phenomenon that happens only once every 26 months.

    At a time when China is trying to commercialize space by building its own satellite navigation network, the Tianwen-1 mission is a throwback to the Cold War-era competition between the U.S. and USSR for bragging rights, said Blaine Curcio, founder of Orbital Gateway Consulting in Hong Kong.

    “The Mars mission is probably more similar to the 1960s space race,” he said. “It is more on the prestige side than strategic importance side.”

    China Plans 39 Million-Mile Race to Mars to Catch Up With NASA

    To be sure, NASA began Mars exploration more than 50 years ago. The Chinese “are largely checking off a lot of the boxes that the U.S. did in previous decades,” said Brian Weeden, director of program planning at the Secure World Foundation, a space policy institute in Washington.

    Not all of this year’s planned trips are proceeding. The European Space Agency and Russia’s State Space Corp. Roscosmos in March postponed their joint mission to 2022.

    In a statement, the agencies cited technical and coronavirus challenges. The pandemic “left our experts practically no possibility to proceed with travels to partner industries,” said Roscosmos Director General Dmitry Rogozin.

  • Mars Opportunity Rover Marks 15-Year Anniversary on Mars with Future Uncertain


    Fifteen years after the Mars Opportunity rover landed on Mars, no one expected NASA would be concerned with the rover’s future in 2019. NASA only expected the Mars Opportunity rover to last 90 Martian sols, or 92 Earth days. Raymond E. Arvidson, PhD, with Washington University in St. Louis is deputy principal investigator for the Mars Exploration Rover mission. Arvidson said, “I’ve learned not to bet against Opportunity.” Since its landing on January 25, 2004 Universal Time which is January 24, 2004 Pacific Time, Opportunity explored well over 100 impact craters and produced valuable scientific data before the rover fell silent June 10, 2018 during a massive dust storm on Mars.

  • NASA rover finally bites the dust on Mars after 15 years


    (14 Feb 2019) It was on 7 July 2003, that NASA's Opportunity rover departed Earth, on its way to the Red Planet.
    The rover lifted off in a cloud of steam aboard a Delta II Heavy rocket.
    It departed Earth a month after its sister rover, Spirit.
    The two slow-moving, golf cart-size rovers landed on opposite sides of the planet in 2004 for a mission meant to last 90 sols, or Mars days, which are 39 minutes longer than Earth days.
    Both were intended to roll across the rocky red soil of Mars and send back data that could help scientists determine whether there was ever enough water on the planet to support life.
    There were cheers in January 2004, when Opportunity landed on Mars, arriving on the Red Planet exactly three weeks after its identical twin set down.
    Just three days later, NASA released the first color photographs taken by Opportunity, showing layers of Martian rock.
    The horizontally-striped and fractured slabs of bedrock were just a short drive from where the six-wheeled robot sat atop its lander.
    There were cheers again, just days later, as Opportunity successfully rolled off its lander onto the rusty soil of Mars.
    The rover also sent back images, as scientists announced the discovery of an iron-rich mineral that forms in liquid water.
    A picture, taken by Opportunity's rear hazard camera, showed the rover's empty lander and a parallel set of tracks leading away from it.
    Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory erupted in cheers as the photograph appeared on a screen in mission control.
    By March 2004, scientists were drawing conclusions from data gathered by Opportunity.
    They said Mars was once soaked with water, enough to support life in a good, habitable environment, after reviewing data from Opportunity.
    A study of a fine, layered rock by the rover detected evidence of sulfates and other minerals that form in the presence of water.
    Both rovers were designed to operate for just 90 days.
    But in April 2004, NASA formally extended its ongoing mission to Mars, giving both rovers - Spirit and Opportunity - another five months to search for evidence the planet once was a wetter place hospitable to life.
    That extension would continue to grow.
    Spirit got stuck in soft Martian dirt in 2009, NASA eventually gave up trying to free it.
    Opportunity outlived its twin by eight years and set endurance and distance records that could stand for decades.
    It lasted 14 and a half years, says project manager, John Callas.
    We went over 45 kilometers, more than a marathon's distance and we lasted more than 5,000 days on the surface of Mars. It's just incredible for what was to be a 90-day mission.
    Since January of 2004, there's been a team of people that go to work every day on Mars. They go to work operating the rover that is exploring Mars.
    And so, in a sense, they've become Martians and the surface of Mars has now become our neighborhood. It's a place where we work. It's familiar to us.
    And so, we now have to say, when we say our world, it actually has to include the surface of Mars now. So, this rover - these rovers, Spirit and Opportunity - have made our world a bigger place and that's I think one of its great legacies.
    Opportunity was exploring Mars' Perseverance Valley, fittingly, when the fiercest dust storm in decades hit and contact was lost.
    The storm was so intense that it darkened the sky for months, preventing sunlight from reaching the rover's solar panels.
    Flight controllers sent more than 1,000 recovery commands, all in vain.

  • 35C3 - The Mars Rover On-board Computer


    How Curiosity's Onboard Computer works, and what you can learn from how it was designed

    Mars Rover Curiosity is one of the most sophisticated pieces of hardware ever launched into space. Because of the communication delay from Earth to Mars, it needs to accomplish most of its tasks completely autonomously: landing, navigation, exploration and singing birthday songs to itself. To do all this, it only has one central onboard computer. Let's look at that computer and the software it runs in detail.

    While space is a somewhat unique environment, we can still learn a lot by looking at how the pieces hardware and software on board of Curiosity are designed and managed. The spacecraft only has one onboard computer that took over from the second it was launched towards Mars. It navigated the stars and orbits, managed a very complicated landing procedure, and now drives around as a car-sized rover over rocks and slippery ravines, all while collecting samples and analysing them with its on board lab.

    First we'll have a look at the history of the Mars Science Laboratory plans, then in part two we will launch into hardware. What processors do we have, how are the working together? How is redundancy handled, and shielding against radiation?

    As a part three, we'll look closely at the rover's software. Using over the air updates, almost all code running on Curiosity has been pushed there after it had landed on Mars. NASA pushed updates to enable new scientific missions, to make it traverse the environment in a different way, and to route around broken hardware.

    After listening to this talk, you should find yourself inspired to look at problems of software and hardware fault-tolerance and long-term maintenance in a new light. You should be entertained by a hopefully interesting aspect of computers and space flight. And you'll get a certain awe of the engineers at JPL and their accomplishments.

  • How NASA Plans Launch Windows for Lunar Landing


    This video describes the intricacies that go into planning a launch to go to the moon. These concepts still hold true today.

    In the context of spaceflight, launch period is the collection of days and launch window is the time period on a given day during which a particular vehicle (rocket, Space Shuttle, etc.) must be launched in order to reach its intended target. If the rocket is not launched within a given window, it has to wait for the window on the next day of the period. Launch periods and launch windows are very dependent on both the rocket's capability and the orbit to which it is going.

    A launch period refers to the days that the rocket can launch to reach its intended orbit. A mission could have a period of 365 days in a year, a few weeks each month, a few weeks every 26 months (e.g. Mars launch periods), or a short period of time that won't be repeated.

    A launch window indicates the time frame on a given day in the launch period that the rocket can launch to reach its intended orbit. This can be as short as a second (referred to as an instantaneous window) or even the entire day. For operational reasons, the window almost always is limited to no more than a few hours. The launch window can stretch over two calendar days (ex: start at 11:46 p.m. and end at 12:14 a.m.). Launch windows are rarely exactly the same times each day.

    Launch windows and launch periods are often used interchangeably in the public sphere, even within the same organization. However, these definitions are the ones used by NASA (and other space agencies) launch directors and trajectory analysts.

  • NASA delays launch of next generation rover to Mars


    1. Mid of National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) media briefing on delay of next generation rover to Mars
    2. SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Griffin, NASA Administrator:
    Today we're announcing a delay in the launch of Mars Science Lab (MSL). Because of a number of factors that need to be addressed, we're slipping the launch of MSL to 2011. As many of you know, this mission which is designed to assess whether the martian environment is or ever was ever able to support microbial life, had been scheduled for launch in the fall of '09 but because of problems, principally with the rover's actuator motors, but also because of rather extensive back log of other work, we will not be ready to launch by the hoped for date next year.
    3. Cutaway of reporter asking a question
    4. SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike Griffin, NASA Administrator:
    Despite the delay, work on the mission really is progressing well with the exception of the motor problem, which we just do not yet adequately understand. I have full confidence in the JPL (Jet Propulsion Lab) team to be able to work through the difficulties but we've determined that trying for '09 would require us to assume too much risk, more than I think is appropriate for a flagship mission like Mars Science Laboratory.
    5. Wide of media briefing
    6. SOUNDBITE: (English) Doug McCuistion, Director, Mars Exploration Programme at NASA: (++part overlaid with STILL images of the cruise stage++)
    This is really three missions in one. This is a very complicated system. I know we hear the words complex and complicated almost overused but I want to give you an idea what that really means. This is the cruise stage. This cruise stage is probably in the order of 25 feet in diameter. This is amazingly complex, typical spacecraft have propulsion lines that are roughly the diameter of a pencil - this has propulsion lines that are roughly an inch in diameter and they're several gradations below that. So this is an incredibly complex, first
    of a kind piece of equipment.
    7. STILL of NASA Mars Rover Family
    8. Photo comparing size of Mars Science Lab Rover with previous rovers
    9. SOUNDBITE: (English) Doug McCuistion, Director, Mars Exploration Programme at NASA:
    The slip to 2011 is essentially going to cost us in the range of 400 (m) million. Why does it cost so much? We're adding a couple of years to the mission, there are operations costs in years that we didn't expect MSL to be operating any longer, so we have to add those funds. The total at the end of that is in the order of 2.2 to 2.3 (b) billion life-cycle cost.
    10. Cutaway of NASA officials during briefing
    11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Ed Weiler, Associate Administrator for NASA's Science Mission Directorate:
    In the future NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) are going to work together to come up with a European-US Mars architecture. That is missions won't be NASA missions, they won't be ESA missions, they will be joint missions. We need to work together, we'll never ever do a sample return mission, unless we work together.
    12. Cutaway of media briefing
    NASA said on Thursday that it's delaying a mission to Mars, citing technical issues and a backlog of work, space agency officials said on Thursday.
    During a news briefing, NASA official Mike Griffin said the main reason was a problem with the rover's actuator motors, but also admitted a number of other projects had pushed the mission back.
    The launch of the massive roving robot was due to launch in 2009, but it won't get off the ground now until 2011, adding 400 (m) million dollars to the price tag, said NASA's Mars Exploration Programme Director, Doug McCuistion.
    The project has been dogged by cost increases and technical challenges.

    11. Rover moving across Martian surface


    The first of two scientific missions to the planet Mars, which had been delayed for two days due to thunderstorms, lifted off from Cape Canaveral early on Tuesday.

    The so-called Martian rover named Spirit lifted off aboard a Boeing Delta II rocket.

    A second rover named Opportunity will be launched to the Martian surface later this month, and both are expected to land on the Red Planet in January.

    Moving on six wheels, the rovers act as robotic geologist roaming over the Martian surface in a search for water and other common elements.

    Each is equipped with a panoramic camera, a camera for close-up views of rocks and a drill to cut into rocks.

    Previous missions have shown Mars had water in the past, but scientists want to find out how long the water was there and in what quantities - scientists believe the water may show that the planet once was able to support life.

    The rovers' landing sites, on opposite sides of the planet, were chosen for their likelihood of holding evidence of water.

    Studying the minerals would yield information on how the rocks were formed, whether they were ever submerged in water and whether hot water ever ran over them.

    The rovers are expected to travel up to 132 feet (40 metres) each Martian day, which is 24 hours and 39 and a half minutes long.

    The missions are expected to last at least three months - after that they the rovers will eventually shut down as dust builds up on their solar panels, and they will remain on the planet.

    Only 12 out of 30 previous attempts have reached Mars, and only three out of nine attempts have succeeded in landing on the planet.

    On 2 June, the European Space Agency's Mars Express blasted off from Russia's Baikonur base in Kazakhstan.

    It too, will search for signs of life on the Martian surface when it lands in late December.

    From the Baikonur cosmodrome on July 30, 2020 at 00:27:42 Moscow time, the launch of the Proton-M carrier rocket with the Briz-M upper stage and the Russian telecommunications spacecraft Express-103 and Express-80 is planned.

    The Proton rocket rolled out to pad 39 at the Site 200 launch complex at Baikonur on Sunday, riding a railcar from a fueling station across the Kazakh steppe to the launch facility. Once it arrived at the pad, the rocket was raised vertical and a mobile tower moved into position around the launcher for final pre-flight checks.

    Built by the Russian aerospace contractor Khrunichev, the 191-foot-tall (58.2-meter) Proton rocket is set to blast off with the Express 80 and Express 103 communications satellites, two spacecraft heading positions more than 22,000 miles (nearly 36,000 kilometers) over the equator to link users across Russia.

    Stacked one on top of the other for launch, the two Express spacecraft are owned by the Russian Satellite Communications Company, or RSCC, a state-owned operator of Russian telecom satellites. The national operator provides civilian satellite communications services across Russia and neighboring countries.

    The Proton rocket is scheduled for launch at 5:27:42 p.m. EDT (2127:42 GMT) Wednesday. It will be the first flight of a Proton rocket — Russia’s most powerful operational launch vehicle — since December.

    Liftoff is scheduled for 2:27 a.m. Baikonur time on Thursday.

    The Proton rocket will take off powered by six first stage RD-276 engines, each consuming a mixture of hydrazine and nitrogen tetroxide propellants. The six main engines will generate 2.5 million pounds of thrust as the Proton climbs away from Baikonur and heads northeast.

    After separation of the Proton’s first stage, two more liquid-fueled stages will ignite to power the Express 80 and Express 103 satellites into space, along with a Breeze M upper stage designed to maneuver the twin payloads — weighing a combined 9,700 pounds (4.4 metric tons) — closer to their final geostationary orbit more than 22,000 miles over the equator.

    According to Roscosmos, the Russian space agency, the Breeze M upper stage will release the Express 80 spacecraft — riding in the upper position in the dual-satellite stack — around 17 hours and 59 minutes into the mission. The deployment of Express 103 will follow 17 minutes later.

    The satellites will use electric thrusters to reach their final operating positions in geostationary orbit.

    Express 80 is heading to a slot along the equator 80 degrees east longitude, while Express 103 will enter service at 96.5 degrees east. Both satellites were built by ISS Reshetnev, a Russian spacecraft manufacturer, and are designed for 15-year missions.

    The satellites each have 16 C-band transponders, 20 Ku-band transponders, and an L-band payload, according to Roscosmos. The communications payloads were supplied by Thales Alenia Space of Italy.

    The new spacecraft will provide fixed and mobile communications, digital TV and radio broadcasting services, high-speed Internet connectivity, and other data transmission services, Roscosmos said.

  • Scientists are building a new Mars rover for $2 billion mission


    The Curiosity rover is still exploring Mars’ rocky surface eight years after landing on Earth’s neighboring planet. Some experts believe Mars could have been much more Earth-like 3.5 billion years ago, with water flowing through ancient rivers and lakes. To continue the quest for knowledge, NASA will be launching a new rover and is set to announce its name after a contest among students to name it. Mark Strassmann reports on the $2 billion mission from the California laboratory where the new rover was built.
