Today is the day of the attempt of National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) perseverance rover to land on red planet.

As per details, NASA's nuclear-powered perseverance rover thundered off Earth in July and began its seven-month journey toward Mars.

The SUV-sized robot is approaching Mars, finishing 470-million kilometers journey from Earth.

The robot got to put itself down safely on the Mars which is a hard task as it has befuddled so many spacecraft before.

The US space agency's perseverance rover is carrying technology which will help it avoid landing hazards.

The six-wheeled robot will search the planet for signs of alien life and test technologies that humans will need to survive on future interplanetary missions. It will also search for ancient signs of life and will collect data and geology of Mars.

The perseverance will also take the first HD video of a Mars landing and drill the first martian rock samples for return to Earth.

However, if perseverance got successful, then space agency would have the amazing opportunity to find signs of past life on Mars.
