    Looking forward to watching this in July (hopefully). The original Mars rovers were so much fun to follow.

    Same here. Going to take 6 months or so for it to get there so it'll be quite interesting to track the trip. The new rover tech is really cool; looks like they made many clever improvements over the last one. Particularly impressed by the way it collects samples. Also really wanting to see the new mini helicopter flying around Mars.

    This is certainly exciting. We learned so much during the last rover mission on Mars and there seem to be some really cool improvements and updates to this new one.

    Does anyone else think the mini helicopter looks like a ceiling fan with a box and four spider legs attached to it?!

    Same here. I'm really excited for this. I really hope everything goes smoothly and there's nothing that holds up the process. This mission reminds me alot of what they have in store for the Titan mission. Should be able to get a ton of good data from this one to make sure Titan's mission is successful.

    lol. So I should have clarified I am really looking forward to the landing. But it is always fun to watch NASA launch rockets on mainstream news or NASA tv.

    Oh yeah. I followed you on that. Was just saying it will also be interesting to track the trip too because it takes so long to get there. But no doubt the actual main event will be the landing.

    Talking about Mars` rovers, I`d like to tell about the firs mission to Mars from GB
    The first ever UK-built Mars rover landing on the planet’s surface have successfully achieved their initial high-altitude full-scale drop tests.
    The mission known as the ‘Rosalind Franklin’ mission will attempt to search for life on Mars. Successful achievement of the parachute test commemorates a crucial milestone ahead of launch schedules for 2022. I am looking forward to the first Mars mission from GB
