Rod returns to catch us up on what's happening on Mars. The Chinese Rover has had its mission extended past its original 90 days. Road says it's very impressive for a first mission. Meanwhile, the US Perseverance rover had its first drilling attempt to grab a sample to return home in a future mission. But the soil was so powdery; they have to move to another location and try again. 

Meanwhile, Blue Origin continues to litigate over the fact that SpaceX was chosen for the Human Landing System and Blue Origin wasn't. So Bezos is suing for a piece of the pie, causing the program to stall until the litigation is settled. Not a good look Jeff Bezos.
