President Biden hails successful Mars landing of NASA’s Perseverance rover


 An hour after NASA’s Perseverance rover nailed an epic landing on Mars, the agency’s acting chief Steve Jurczyk got a surprise phone call from the president of the United States.

“His first words were ‘Congratulations, man,’ and I knew it was him,” Jurczyk said of the call from President Joe Biden today (Feb. 18). “He talked about how proud he was of what we had accomplished.”
