Exciting NASA missions coming in 2021


Today’s Video of the Day from NASA describes the exciting missions that will be launched in 2021, such as landing the Perseverance rover on Mars.

This year, the first Artemis mission will take place. Along with other major projects, the Artemis program will lay the groundwork for humans to return to the moon. 

In addition, scientists will send the powerful James Webb Telescope into space, test our ability to redirect hazardous asteroids, and launch the new Earth-observing satellite Landsat 9 into orbit.
