Installing Perseverance's Sample Tubes
NASA’s Perseverance rover is almost ready to depart for Mars, with a launch planned for as early as 20 July. Here a team of engineers and technicians is seen installing sample tubes into the belly of the rover. These tubes will be used to collect and store samples of Martian soil for future return to Earth.
