"There would be no bigger discovery in the history of humanity than finding life that is not on our own world", NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said.

NASA says it has a handle on the problem, and mission controllers are now performing the requisite steps to transition the spacecraft back into normal cruise mode.

The Perseverance forms part of NASA's Moon to Mars mission, which aims to have the first woman (and the next man) on the moon by 2024.

According to an agency -Mars 2020, the space ship which was carrying NASA's new rover Perseverance to the Red planet Suddenly experienced technical difficulties and was temporarily running on essentials system only. Navigation data indicate the spacecraft is perfectly on course to Mars.

"As the spacecraft entered into Earth's shadow, the Sun was temporarily blocked by Earth, and the outlet temperature dropped", said Wallace.

Six of the 89 samples tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus responsible for COVID-19, VCH said in a news release Friday. Numerous new cases have also involved younger people, in their 20s to 40s. "Have a good time - safely".

"The mission addresses high-priority science goals for Mars exploration, including key questions about the potential for life on Mars", NASA said. In the first few hours after liftoff, retrieving precise location and positioning data from the spacecraft was hampered in a brief "communications issue", NASA officials said, involving the agency's global network of antennas used to communicate with its most distant probes.

The Perseverance rover blasted into the skies at 4:50 am EDT (11:50 GMT) on July 30th atop a United Launch Alliance built Atlas V rocket on a mission to collect samples for an eventual return mission to Earth, and continue the hunt for life on the Red Planet.

Scientists have long debated whether Mars - once a much more hospitable place than it is today - ever harbored life. Perseverance also features seven instruments, including the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment or MOXIE, which seeks to demonstrate the ability to turn carbon dioxide into oxygen.

As now envisioned, the lander launches in 2026 and arrives at Mars in 2028, touching down close to the Mars 2020 rover near Jezero Crater.

Perseverance Rover is part of NASA's long-term robotic exploration program of Mars. A NASA-provided payload on the orbiter would provide the capabilities needed to capture and contain the samples, placing them in an Earth entry vehicle that would land the samples safely on US soil.
