NASA's Perseverance Rover lifts off to Mars

Rover will search for evidence of life and help bring NASA one step closer to landing humans on Mars.

    NASA has launched its Perseverance Rover from Cape Canaveral in Florida to seek out life on Mars.

    When it reaches the Red Planet, the rover will look for biosignatures, take rock samples, and fly an experimental helicopter over the planet's surface.

    The launch comes on the heels of similar missions from China and the United Arab Emirates.

    Al Jazeera's Andy Gallacher reports from Florida, US.
