NASA launches rover in mission to find signs of ancient life on Mars

Nasa’s most sophisticated rover yet, Perseverance, has successfully blasted off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral on a $2.7bn mission to search for traces of ancient life on Mars. Perseverance will travel for about seven months before attempting to land on the Jerezo crater, which scientists suspect could bear evidence of potential past microbial life on Mars. The car-sized, six-wheel scientific vehicle will also test out equipment for future human missions to the red planet
