Dome to Home
Humanity has been fascinated by Mars for centuries, and the allure only continues as we explore for water, signs of ancient life, and the possibility of one day living on the Red Planet. It's only with the help of spacecraft and rovers that we can unlock some of the mysteries. As we speak, the Mars 2020 mission is speeding through space to deliver the robots Perseverance and Ingenuity to the surface of the planet. Join us for the 12-part Dome to Home series Perseverance to Mars that follows the journey of this mission and how we've come to learn what we know about Mars up to this point. What will we learn next?
