    Launch time for NASA's Perseverance Mission to Mars is about 30 mins away.

    https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/timeline/launch/watch-online/




    I usually miss these and the Space X launches, so I'm excited to see one live.

    [Edit] Launch coverage starts in 30. Launch time is July 30 at 4:50 a.m. PDT (7:50 a.m. EDT) [/EDIT]

    And..if we do go to mars
    1]Must we still wear a mask & keep social distancing?
    2]How long are we to be quarantined for upon our return?
    3]If we do go and then told we can't return to earth for weeks because of flight cancellations on earth etc...will i lose my job?

    By the time we humans get to go to Mars, the questions you asked will be mostly redundant. Oh and to Q3, if you miss the launch window to come home it's about a 26 month wait, so don't go for a last minute wizz and get left behind.
