Mars Rover Has a Friend – This is Only a Test 560 – 7/30/20

We’re going reverse order this week, but kick things off with anticipation for the impending launch of the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover slated for early Thursday, and its kit of high-tech gear being sent offworld. We discuss the Oculus headset photo leak, our hopes for Tales from Galaxy’s Edge, the Xbox games showcase, and major takeaways from last week’s Comic-Con at home. Thanks to Maskil for making our awesome heavy metal theme this week!
