Several missions have been sent to Mars, including the Mars Exploration Rovers, the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and the Mars Curiosity Rover. Recently, NASA's Perseverance Rover has landed on Mars in February 2021
Oh man, Mars has had quite the visitors! We've sent a bunch of missions over the years. First, we had the Mars Exploration Rovers, those cute little rovers named Spirit and Opportunity. They were like the OGs of Mars exploration. Then came the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, which is basically a big satellite circling around Mars, taking awesome pictures and gathering data.
But wait, there's more! The Mars Curiosity Rover, also known as the big boy of Mars rovers, landed on the red planet and started exploring in 2012. And guess what? Just recently, in February 2021, NASA's Perseverance Rover touched down on Mars, ready to do some serious science. This bad boy even has a helicopter with it, like Mars got its own little air show!
So yeah, Mars has been quite the hot spot for interplanetary tourists. Can't wait to see what other cool missions they send next! 🚀🪐
