Mars beckons and NASA is ready to heed the call of the Red Planet with the upcoming launch of the Perseverance rover. But before launch day, kids of all ages can put their imagination to paper via the latest edition of NASA Space Crafts.

The fourth planet from the Sun is in the spotlight for this edition, with a coloring page to get you ready for the Mars 2020 mission as part of the agency’s NASA@Home initiative.

The Mars 2020 Perseverance rover is designed to better understand the geology of Mars and seek signs of ancient life. The mission will collect and store a set of rock and soil samples that could be returned to Earth in the future. It will also test new technology to benefit future robotic and human exploration of Mars. The rover will begin its journey this summer when it launches on a United Launch Alliance Atlas V 541 rocket from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida en route to Mars’ Jezero Crater.
