I had an alarm set for 04:45 so that I could watch Perseverance and Ingenuity launch toward Mars. Turns out I didn’t need it.
The launch was flawless.
So now the spacecraft coast for seven months with a couple of small course corrections as needed until it intercepts Mars and lands at Jezero on February 18, 2021. After enduring and surviving (and nailing the landing) in the classic “Seven Minutes of Terror.”
It’s only rocket science.
