Luck favors the prepared. @NASA_Wallops' work on my parachute is proof of that. They overcame an extraordinary engineering challenge by doing everything possible to get my parachute right. See how they made it work under harsh conditions:

A moment of respect for the descent stage. Within two minutes of safely delivering me to the surface of Mars, I caught the smoke plume on one of my Hazcams from its intentional surface impact — an act that protected me and the scientific integrity of my landing site.

Quoted @POTUS

On Thursday, I joined the world and watched in awe as the Perseverance Rover touched down on the surface of Mars. It was a remarkable feat — one made possible by the hard work and ingenuity of the team at @NASA.

I called to congratulate them on their historic landing.

Behind every successful mission is a great team. Thank you for your kind words, Mr. President. My team and I couldn't agree more: when you work together, there's nothing you can't do.

Busy, busy. What I’ve been up to since landing, you ask? Well, quite a bit. On Feb. 22 at 11am PT (2pm ET/1900 GMT, hear my team back on Earth discuss the data I’ve sent them so far and what I’ll be doing these upcoming days. #CountdownToMars
