How a ship got stuck in the Suez Canal, and then freed
On March 23, one of the largest ships in the world became stuck sideways in the Suez Canal. The canal is one of the world's most important and busiest shipping waterways. Ships use it to transport goods all over the world.
The trapped ship, named Ever Given, blocked the canal, causing a traffic jam of cargo ships waiting to make it through. The cargo ships were unable to reach their destinations. This affected the prices of products around the world.
NASA's new rover, named Perseverance, landed on Mars on February 18, 2021. Mars is a neighboring planet in our solar system. The rover is a robotic vehicle used for exploration. Perseverance landed in a region called the Jezero Crater. Billions of years ago, it was full of water. The rover's main jobs are to hunt for signs of ancient life inside the crater and to collect and store samples for future return to Earth.
