NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover is set to touch down on the Red Planet on Thursday, February 18th.
Earthlings are pretty darn excited.
At Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), the famous LAX pylons are glowing red in anticipation of the landing.
Many other sites and landmarks around the world, including Cleveland’s historic Terminal Tower, are also glowing red in anticipation of the landing.
Krispy Kreme is celebrating the landing too with a special Mars doughnut. This chocolate cream-filled doughnut is dipped in caramel icing with a red planet swirl and sprinkled with chocolate cookie crumbs. The limited-edition doughnut is available in shops and online for one day only – Thursday, February 18.
And of course, you’ll want to tune in to watch NASA’s live coverage of the Perseverance Rover Landing, starting at 11:15 am PST and 2:15 EST.
