Did you know @NASAPersevere is carrying two microphones to Mars? One will capture sounds of the rover's landing and operations; the second is part of a science instrument, and will record sound to potentially help us understand the characteristics of rocks:

"It once held a lake. And what we're going to do, as soon as we get there, is to explore the rocks that were deposited in that lake for biosignatures - for evidence of ancient life." - @NASAPersevere scientist Ken Farley explains what the rover will study at Jezero Crater, Mars.

I’m 22 days from landing on Mars. With ~25.6 million-miles (41.2 million-km) left, I’m closing in on Jezero Crater. It’s the most dangerous Martian site attempted for landing, but I'm ready to take it on.🚀 #CountdownToMars

That's a wrap! @Astro_illini and @AstroVicGlover concluded today's spacewalk at 1:24pm ET, following a 6-hour and 56-minute excursion to perform @Space_Station upgrades. Inside, @Astro_Soichi and Kate Rubins await their crew mates as the airlock repressurizes.

Success! With a bit of strength and skill, @Astro_illini removed the H-fixture from the @Space_Station, opening the slot for future solar array system upgrades. Now, he and @AstroVicGlover are returning to the airlock to wrap up today's spacewalk.

Six hours into the 233rd spacewalk at the @Space_Station, @AstroVicGlover and @Astro_illini are conducting their final task, which is to remove a robotic device called an "H-fixture" that is no longer needed.

"Countdown 3, 2, 1..." @AstroVicGlover jettisons, or releases, an antenna cover as it no longer sparks joy and is not needed. Eventually it will burn up safely in Earth's atmosphere.
