NASA is about to send the ultimate valentine to Mars with Perseverance rover landing


NASA has a very special Valentine’s Day delivery en route to the Red Planet — one that could deliver presents to us in person, in a few years.

About once every decade, the agency sends out a seminal Mars landing mission to learn more about our potentially habitable neighbor. Its latest effort is the powerful Perseverance rover, ready for touchdown on Thursday, Feb. 18. (Bonus Valentine for you: You can watch the landing live here at Space.com, courtesy of NASA TV, and participate in a virtual NASA Social event as well.)
