The largest, most advanced rover NASA has sent to another world touched down on Mars Thursday, after a 203-day journey traversing 293 million miles.

Confirmation of the successful touchdown was announced in mission control at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California at 3:55 p.m. EST. Packed with groundbreaking technology, the Mars 2020 mission launched July 30, 2020, from Cape Canaveral Space Force Station in Florida. The Perseverance rover mission marks an ambitious first step in the effort to collect Mars samples and return them to Earth. The first of its kind, DA62 SurveyStar, has been handed over To GeoFly. Despite the difficulties caused by the pandemic, system integration went flawless in all directions. Considering that it is the first customer aircraft and involved numerous parties from various countries, it cannot be taken as given but once again demonstrates the strength of Diamond’s Special Mission Aircraft Division, to act as the single point of contact towards the customer in order to provide a ready-to-fly turnkey solution. American Legend Aircraft is participating with McKinney High School students and local STEM project organizers to build a Legend Cub two-place airplane. Organizers state that the project represents the team's first time building a Legend Cub. The project is currently underway at McKinney National Airport (KTKI), a short distance from the Dallas-area school. The Legend Cub’s design takes its cues from one of the world's most recognized small airplanes, the Piper Cub. The first Legend Cub was manufactured in 2005. All this -- and MORE in today's episode of Airborne!!!
