This Day in History

On this day in 1969 the Mariner 6 was launched for a Mars flyby to study the red planet’s atmosphere. This is especially notable with last week’s landing of the Perseverance Rover on Mars for a multitude of missions to look for previous life on Mars and prepare for potential human exploration of Mars!

How far we have come from a flyby of the planet to the amazing feat last week.
