The Mars 2020 rover presently is on the company's Kennedy Space Center in Florida is ready for launch this summer season.

Perhaps the most important mission of Perseverance, however, is to collect a sample of material on Mars and store it in a capsule for later inspection.

Nasa's first wheeled robot, which landed on the planet in 1997, was called the Microrover Flight Experiment until a 12-year-old student from CT suggested the name Sojourner, in honour of abolitionist and women's rights activist Sojourner Truth. "We as humans evolved as creatures who could learn to adapt to any situation, no matter how harsh", Mather wrote in his essay proposing the name. It's already surmounted many obstacles to get us to the point where we are today - processing for launch. "But we will not give up". The student with the winning essay will appear at the live stream event to unveil the chosen name for the rover. The contest invited students in kindergarten through 12th grade to submit suggestions.

Nasa's naming competition for the robot attracted 28,000 entries, with all submissions accompanied by a short, 150-word essay.

Furthermore, Perseverance is enabled to capture the first audio samples from Mars, with multiple onboard microphones programmed to record the sound of the rover's descent to the surface, and also the workings of the rover.

Almost 4,700 volunteer judges had narrowed a pool of 28,000 contest entries down to 155 semifinalists. NASA then put the names to the public, giving them a chance to vote for their favorite in an online poll. Engineers began assembling Perseverance two years ago at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California.

Tools How the rover took these images?

The official name of the Mars 2020 rove was selected through a nationwide contest launched by NASA in August a year ago. Not content with just one large panorama, NASA also created a second, smaller model that indicates more of the rover within the picture. "We're making history right now", NASA associate administrator Thomas Zurbuchen said at the announcement event. It will also undertake the first ever drilling procedure on Martian surface, procuring rocks from Mars and storing it in order to bring it back to Earth.
