Mars 2020 Mission, Perseverance Rover Launch

Launch is planned for this summer, and the Mars 2020 team is working hard to get the Perseverance rover to the launch pad.  Check the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex  for hours and/or any restrictions.  If you plan to attend in person, consider making refundable travel reservations.

The first launch opportunity begins at
4:50 a.m. PDT/ 7:50 a.m. EDT on July 30

The launch period is approximately three weeks, from July 30 to August 15. The duration of the daily launch window varies from day to day. The launch windows will last approximately two hours, with a unique launch opportunity every five minutes.
The Mars 2020 spacecraft with its Perseverance Rover will launch on an Atlas V-541 rocket from Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida.  The Atlas V is one of the largest rockets available for interplanetary flight.  This is the same type of rocket that launched the InSight and Curiosity to Mars.  The launch vehicle is provided by United Launch Alliance, Centennial Colorado.
