TOUCHDOWN!! Perseverance has successfully landed on Mars

NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory 2020 Rover, Perseverance has successfully landed on the Red Planet.

Congratulations to NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration and everyone involved in the mission.

A special mention and congratulations to one of our customers, Carpenter Additive, who helped in the mission by providing titanium components for Perseverance, the Mars 2020 Rover, which will support mission-critical, pioneering measurements of the chemical makeup of our neighbouring red planet.

The six-wheeled vehicle will now spend at least the next two years drilling into the local rocks, looking for evidence of past life.

What an exciting and historic day!
