NASA has launched its Perseverance Rover from Cape Canaveral in Florida to seek out life on Mars.
When it reaches the Red Planet, the rover will look for biosignatures, take rock samples, and fly an experimental helicopter over the planet's surface.
The launch comes on the heels of similar missions from China and the UAE.
