Return to the red planet: NASA prepares to launch alien-hunting Mars rover Perseverance tomorrow which will dig up Martian samples and launch the first helicopter on Mars

NASA is set to launch an SUV-sized rover to Mars on Thursday, July 30 with the hopes of answering one question – is there life on the planet?

The Perseverance rover will take flight aboard a United Launch Alliance Atlas V rocket at 7:50am ET from Cape Canaveral, Florida and is scheduled to arrive on the Red Planet in February 2021.

The descend to Mars has been described as 'seven minutes of terror,' but if the rover makes a successful landing it will travel to Jerzo Crater - a region scientist speculate was home to a lake 3.5 billion years ago.
