This is no ordinary geocaching trading item!

Mars Perseverance Rover is a Mars Perseverance Rover Travel Bug, traveling from geocache to geocache on a very specific mission.

Trackable ItemIf you do not intend to log your visit on the Geocaching.com web site, please DO NOT TAKE THIS ITEM. Its travels and its progress requires you to log that it is being taken from this geocache. You will also need to log when you place it in another geocache. It's easy!

If you are willing to log your part of this Trackable's journey and place it in another geocache as soon as possible (after you log your find), grab it from this geocache.

My Current Goal:

Geocaching and NASA head to Mars with the Perseverance Rover

Mars 2020 is part of NASA's Mars Exploration Program, a long-term effort of robotic exploration of the Red Planet. This specific mission addresses high-priority science goals for Mars exploration, including key questions about the potential for life there. On the day/sol when the rover landed on Mars, Geocaching HQ launched this page about Perseverance and Geocaching's history with regards to space:

Perseverance has four main science goals:
