Sprout Social : I’m officially halfway to the Red Planet. Since launch, I’ve logged 146 million miles (235 million km), and have the same to go. System checkouts are going well as I barrel toward my date with Mars: Feb 18, 2021. #CountdownToMars

Tune in to a live Q&A w/ Eric Aguilar, Technical Group Supervisor to NASAs Perseverance Mars Rovers sample caching system. Hear how they built it, how the Mars rover will use it in its search for ancient life & get advice on working for NASA. #CountdownToMars

Twitter Web App : MEDLI2 cruise checkout ✅

These sensors will measure the environment around my protective shell and performance of thermal protection system material during landing — key info for safer and more reliable landings for future Mars missions. #CountdownToMars

Twitter Web App : When I land on Mars, I have a to-do list to help in my search for ancient life: find favorable rocks, drill, collect & store. Eric Aguilar helped engineer the caching system Ill use. Catch his live Q&A: Oct. 22, 2pm PT (5pm ET, 2100 UTC).

Twitter Web App : I have 11 3D printed parts. As part of an explorative additive manufacturing technique, specialized engineers play with unique designs & traits, making hardware lighter, stronger, or more responsive. It's key to next-gen spacecraft design. #CountdownToMars

Twitter Web App : Im getting closer to Mars. Once there, I will use my “radar eyes” to see what’s beneath the surface.

My ground-penetrating radar can see at least 30 feet (10 meters) down to help search for signs of past microbial life. #CountdownToMars
