How to pronounce ‘Jezero crater.’ (Yes, you may be doing it wrong.)


If you read about NASA’s Perseverance rover, come across the name of its landing site on Mars — Jezero Crater — and pronounce it in your head, you may be doing it wrong. Many people at NASA aren’t pronouncing it correctly, either. 

NASA’s Perseverance mission will attempt to land on Mars today (Feb. 18). Once it reaches the 28-mile-wide (45 kilometers) Jezero Crater, the rover will use its seven instruments and the help of a helicopter called Ingenuity to study Earth’s neighboring planet like never before.
