UK's robotic Mars rover 'Rosalind Franklin' is going to land on the surface of Mars in 2023. The rover was successfully tested in the Oregon desert. It is UK's first-ever Mars rover and will be delivered by the 15-foot parachutes that were a part of the test. It was supposed to be launched earlier this year but the Covid crisis led to the delay in the project. The mission is aimed at finding signs of life on Mars.
