NASA is sending a rocket to Mars this morning. The Atlas Five rocket will be carrying the Perseverance rover and a small helicopter to Mars. It will be the first spacecraft to record sounds on another planet. Perseverance will lift off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station at 7:50 this morning. The rover is set to land on Mars in February.
