NASA released a video this week that shows Perseverance’s last steps toward the launch pad, as it gets packed up and ready to board the rocket to the Red Planet.

With only one week left until the launch window opens for NASA’s Perseverance rover, the car-sized robot is going through final prep for its long journey to Mars.

NASA released a video this week that shows Perseverance’s last steps toward the launch pad, as it gets packed up and ready to board the rocket to the Red Planet.

The video shows Perseverance’s journey that began in February as the rover made its way to the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida on February 12. From there, the rover has been going through final tests before it gets approved for launch.

On Wednesday, a video was released of it being packed up in a fairing nose cone which will be maneuvered into place on top of the Atlas V rocket that will launch Perseverance to Mars as soon as July 30.
