NASA has been sending machines and tools to explore mars since 1970, but this is the first time any of those machines have looked under the surface in the Jezero Crater region. It may shed light on whether water existed on mars or not, and if this planet could become habitable for humans on day.
Perseverance will collect at least 20 samples during its life on mars. The rover is accompanied by a small helicopter, named ingenuity, which recently completed its 15th flight.
