FLORIDA, U.S. - On May 18, The An-124-100 of Volga Dnepr transported the 32-meter long rocket booster from Huntsville, Alabama, to its final destination, where it will be launched.

In addition to the huge rocket booster, Volga-Dnepr also transported payload fairings and RD-180 engines that will be used in the mission.
After unloading the cargo, launch service provider United Launch Alliance moved the rocket into the Atlas Spaceflight Operations Center for post-shipment checks.

The high profile delivery signaled the start of a new phase of launch preparations for the Perseverance Rover, the centerpiece of NASA’s $2.5bn Mars 2020 mission.
The launch is scheduled at 9:10 am on July 17.
