Nasa has once again embarked on a expedition to rediscover that Mars does not inhabit life in any shape or form.
They sent a robot this time to explore the surface. This mission to get the robot there took 92 weeks, and a way of getting the robot safely on the planets surfaces was one of their most difficult challenges. Using a space ship, that has jet thrusters which work in the opposite way to normal projectile thrusters. These were called retro rockets.
This intriguing method slowly brought the mini sized robot safely to the red, dusty, rocky surface.
Good on Nasa!
