When @NASAPersevere lands on Mars, it’s bringing along Ingenuity. This experiment will attempt the 1st controlled flight on another planet. If successful, the helicopter could lead to more advanced tech. Here are six things to know: #CountdownToMars

Learn more about the small-but-mighty tech I’m carrying to Mars.

How does sound change on Mars? I’m taking two mics with me, so we’ll soon find out. Try this new interactive to preview the difference: 🎧 Once I land, we can compare notes.

As the Sun sets on 2020, I'm thinking of everyone back on planet Earth. Here's to the next orbit, and brighter sols to come!

Save the date: @NASAPersevere lands Feb. 18, 2021. #CountdownToMars #HappyNewYear

The #CountdownToMars is on. Let's go.

I’m on a one-way mission to Mars, but the samples I collect there will be the first things ever to make a round trip. In the search for signs of ancient life on Mars, see how super-clean sample tubes make for super-clean science.

I’ve adjusted my flight path again, and I’m on target for Mars. Save the date and get ready to tune in on Feb. 18, 2021. About 75 million miles (120 million km) to go. #CountdownToMars

Quoted @Dr_ThomasZ

Returning samples of Mars to Earth has been a goal of planetary scientists since the early days of the space age & the successful completion of this @NASAMars Sample Return key decision point is an important next step in transforming this goal into reality

The samples I collect on Mars will be returned to Earth by future missions. It’s a relay, and my partners are getting warmed up.

Meet Bill Allen, mechanical systems design lead for several Mars rovers including @NASAPersevere. The Los Angeles native started his @NASA career in the mail room and now leads tiger teams, which solve some of our most challenging problems #CountdownToMars

Meet one of the many amazing members of my team. #CountdownToMars

My team worked with @USGS_AstroGeo to make an interactive map of my landing site in Mars’ Jezero Crater. This will help scientists better understand what I’m seeing, drilling and caching as I explore. Click each color block for info. #CountdownToMars

I’m bringing along special items on the #CountdownToMars as part of a @NASA tradition called “festooning.” These items, both practical and decorative, include a sundial, ~11 million names, and spacesuit material to test for future human exploration of Mars

As we continue my #CountdownToMars, learn more about an experimental device I have called MOXIE. It’s designed to convert carbon dioxide from the Martian air into oxygen. That’ll be important for fuel and life support in future Red Planet exploration.

One of my two microphones captured these sounds during an in-flight checkout on my way to Mars. The hum you hear is the heat rejection fluid pump that helps keep the temperature comfortable in my aeroshell. #countdowntomars

I’m set to take weather reports on Mars. MEDA (Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer) senses pressure, wind speed/direction, humidity & temp. With @MarsCuriosity and @NASAInSight, we'll have the 1st meteorological network on another planet. #CountdownToMars
