Perseverance: Being There

Perseverance: The Mission and the Team, Thomas Zurbuchen

"As we went through the countdown, just minutes before the launch of NASA's Perseverance rover, we got a message that seemed fitting: "there is an Earthquake in Pasadena." MiMi Aung, the project director of Ingenuity, the pioneering Mars helicopter was just on air from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory when her world started shaking. "She seemed a little more nervous than normal." somebody remarked and wondered why. Minutes later, the same person wondered: "how did she keep it together during all this?" This is the question many have asked many times, and the Perseverance team answered it over and over, not by words, but by actions. Here are some Perseverance moments during the past few years."
