The Mars rover will remain on the planet until the end of the mission, as it has been since September 2017, when it took a first close look at the Red Planet.
The rover has not yet completed a drive that will make it to a landing site that could take it past the crater of the Red Rock.
It is currently conducting a calibration drill, but it could be more time before it lands.
The lander, named MAVEN, will return in 2020 to collect data from its sample collection and analysis.
The mission will take it beyond the Martian surface to look for clues about what happened to the Red Giant’s ancient surface and atmosphere during its time of greatest geological activity.
Mars is the only planet in our solar system that is thought to have liquid water, but its liquid remains largely unknown.
It was discovered in 1908 by American astronomer Edwin Hubble, who called the planet “the most interesting planet in the Solar System.”
The Martian surface is dotted with craters and fractures, which can be more than 10 kilometers across.
The most recent crater, dubbed Mount Sharp, has a diameter of 8 meters.
