Alex will visit Cape Canaveral Air Force Station to witness the launch of the rover and will always be associated with this mission.
Mars 2020 will explore a landscape shaped by water which is the 'Jezero Crater', the site of an ancient delta
The rover weighs roughly 570 kgs and travels at a leisurely speed of 20 centimetres per second here on Earth.
The mission's primary goals are to check for the history of life and water on the Red Planet.
Curiosity is the largest rover built by NASA till date, weighing 899 kgs and moving at a speed of 30 mph.
There are currently people working on trying to establish a permanent human colony on Mars.
Viewers can ask questions of the engineers about the rover, mission during the 'Seeing 2020' broadcast.
The rock and others near Curiosity's drill site appear to have moved when the drill was retracted.
The German drilling instrument on the InSight lander struck what appeared to be a couple of stones.
Now it’s up to NASA's Curiosity and the newest, InSight lander to carry on the exploration.
