The Mars 2020 mission duplicates most of Curiosity’s entry, descent, and landing (EDL) system and much of its rover design. The mission advances several innovations that include sensors to measure the atmosphere, cameras, and a microphone. Perseverance will have the ability to land in more challenging terrain than Curiosity, making more rugged sites eligible as safe landing candidates.
