Touchdown on Mars!!! NASA's Perseverance landing successful!

It really happened! Almost a decade after the landing of Curiosity, NASA successfully lands an even more complex rover on the red planet, Perseverance!

The first 3 images retrieved by Perseverance just minutes after it's successful landing was confirmed

Needlesst to say as a space geek and former ESA employee, I've been looking forward to this day for years and watched the event live with others in my professional network. Even feeling emotional right now.

You can watch the landing and post coverage on NASA TV right now.

What an incredible moment!!!
