Together we landed with @nasapersevere on Mars. Thanks for being with us as we explore where no one has gone before. We couldn’t do it without you, and we wouldn’t want to. Now, let’s get to work. #CountdownToMars https://t.co/BT75v4ExEK https://t.co/cB6znwAhca

The spot where @NASAPersevere began its journey on Mars now bears the name “Octavia E. Butler Landing." Groundbreaking author @OctaviaEButler is a perfect fit for this mission, as her main characters embody overcoming challenges.

The adventure is only beginning. @NASAPersevere took its first drive on Mars. This test marks a major milestone before science operations get underway for the largest and most advanced rover yet on the Red Planet. https://t.co/z5ltJ9f8ad

Teachers & parents: @NASAPersevere is on Mars, but the science is just getting started. Budding explorers can design, launch and land a spacecraft with our Mission to Mars Student Challenge. Students’ work can even be featured on the showcase page! https://t.co/P2mLPU5eli https://t.co/qqwDjUy43S

The Mars Ascent Propulsion System contract has been awarded to @NorthropGrumman. This moves @NASA & @ESA closer to realizing Mars Sample Return, a mission that will collect @NASAPersevere's samples for return to Earth and build upon decades of exploration. https://t.co/Y3z17D1Kdb https://t.co/7LVx5Y6KIO

In order to study climate change better, researchers want to access, analyze and process large amounts of complex land cover data more easily. So we’ve joined forces with @BU_Tweets to create a cloud computing platform for global climate change scientists. https://t.co/t9bOx8fgWD https://t.co/vFMsNgkeNv

✨March brings more cosmic goodies! Spot Mars near the Pleiades or look for the reddish stars Aldebaran and Betelgeuse. Toward the second half of the month, look for the bright pairing of Jupiter and Saturn in the pre-dawn sky.

@NASAPersevere @NASA https://t.co/BnSWCYWlXf

We’re awfully fond of @NASAPersevere and @MarsCuriosity, but even we can admit they’re not as adorable as the baby penguins “Mars” and “Rover.” Thanks for the nod to our missions, @CincinnatiZoo! 🤖 + 🐧 = 💞 https://t.co/z7hAEBxkOV

She helped us propel the dawn of the Space Age through her work as a ‘human computer’. Now, our headquarters building will be named in her honor. Get to know Mary W. Jackson, our first African American female engineer: https://t.co/QvrTKd3L2Z https://t.co/pJd6h8AttM

For the first time, a young comet-like object has been spotted near Jupiter’s ancient Trojan asteroids. @NASAHubble captured visible-light snapshots of the object showing signs of comet activity, such as a tail and an enveloping coma of dust and gas. https://t.co/9UnBIoduKI https://t.co/p88q6Loj12

Rarely do you get do-overs in space exploration. @NASA_Wallops built & extensively tested a 72-ft parachute that could survive inflating in a Mach 2 wind in half a second to land @NASAPersevere safely on Mars. See how they did it: https://t.co/wDHmWGnp9O https://t.co/pRAI5NfWnN
