Hosted by Ken Brandt.
When you think of Mars, what comes into your mind? Martians, armed with ray guns coming to earth with ill intent? A barren, dry, and cold wasteland? A watery wonderland of rivers, lakes, seas, and rain? With the exception of the armed Martians, you are correct.
Perseverance lands on Mars tomorrow. It’s landing ellipse is centered on the floor of Jezero Crater, 31 miles in diameter, and mostly flat.
