Last week, at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) that shows technicians working on the Agency's next engineering marvel: the Mars 2020 Rover. The camera is trained on the laboratory's cleaning room, where the Rover is slowly taking shape.
As NASA notes, this next-gen Mars Rover still has months of final testing ahead of it before it's ready for launch in July 2020. You can watch the whole process unfold on your laptop (with only minor interruptions for camera maintenance).
Scientists will work on the rover Monday through Friday, starting at 8 a.m. (11 ET), and NASA will be holding daily web chats with JPL's social media team and the Mars 2020 team at 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. PT, Monday through Thursday.
