Biden, Harris, Obama has successfully landed NASA's Perseverance on Mars' surface

As NASA landed its largest and most advanced Preservance rover on the Martian surface, Steve Jurczyk, acting chief of the agency, received a call from President Joe Biden of the United States, congratulating him on the successful landing. To hail the team of scientists who worked hard to make the historic landing of Perseverance possible, Biden also took to his Twitter handle.

Congratulations to NASA and everyone whose hard work made the historic landing of Perseverance possible.”Today proved once again that nothing is beyond the realm of possibility with the power of science and American ingenuity,” Biden tweeted.

US Vice President Kamala Harris also tweeted, “Congratulations to @NASA and all of its partners on the success of their mission.”The historic landing of today embodies the spirit of perseverance of our nation-building on previous achievements and paving the way for future missions.

Meanwhile, former US President Barack Obama recalled the investment made by the administration eight years ago to help continue America’s rich exploration and discovery tradition.”Thanks to @NASAJPL on the @MarsPersevere landing today! Looking forward to seeing what this mission reveals—and proudly, our administration invested in this effort eight years ago to help continue America’s rich tradition of exploration and discovery.”

The successful landing of the rover in the vast Jezero Crater was revealed at 3:55 p.m. After a harrowing sky crane landing, EST (2055 GMT)

The six-wheeled vehicle landing would mark the third visit in just over a week to Mars. On successive days in the past week, two spacecraft from the United Arab Emirates and China swung into orbit around the planet.
