Join Online NASA Meet Up for Mars Mission



Article: #CountdownToMars Social - NASA.gov

NASA has been hosting in-person get-togethers for a decade now. During these times, however, they are doing them online, and it's easy to participate.

Just go to their Facebook page: #CountdownToMars Virtual NASA Social Answer a few questions, and get approved. You will then be able to participate. This is a great opportunity to be part of the historic launch later this month, when the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover will launch on its mission to the red planet.
