Perseverance rover goes on a Mars road trip

June is a fine time for a Martian road trip if you're a robotic rover.

Perseverance began driving away from its Octavia E. Butler landing site on June 1. The Mars rover left the scenic overlook where it captured images and video of the Ingenuity helicopter's flights and is heading for another one that will reveal some of the oldest geologic features of Jezero Crater.

The crater, which hosted an ancient lake 3.9 billion years ago, could contain evidence of ancient microbial life if it ever existed on Mars.
