It's been a busy 100 days! Since Jan. 20, we've landed our Perseverance rover on Mars, and flown our Ingenuity helicopter, a technology demonstration that caught a ride with the rover to the Red Planet. A ceremony marked the naming of our Mary W. Jackson Headquarters in Washington after the agency's first Black female engineer, honoring her contributions to our mission of exploration.
