It’s been a busy 100 days! Since Jan. 20, we’ve landed our Perseverance rover on Mars, and flown our Ingenuity helicopter, a technology demonstration that caught a ride with the rover to the Red Planet. A ceremony marked the naming of our Mary W. Jackson Headquarters in Washington after the agency’s first Black female engineer, honoring her contributions to our mission of exploration. Vice President Harris spoke with NASA astronauts on the International Space Station. Our Artemis program to return astronauts to the Moon completed a successful Green Run hot fire test for our Space Launch System rocket core stage, which arrived this week at Kennedy Space Center. NASA’s SpaceX Crew-2 mission launched four astronauts to the space station, and we selected SpaceX as partner to build landers for Artemis missions. We made addressing climate change a priority, and celebrated Earth Day on and off the planet.
