Burns cliff, part of the crater walls of Endurance crater, shows off the various layers that have been built up over time on the surface of the red planet. An impactor from outer space revealed these layers long ago, and Opportunity came by to serendipitously discover and image them.

NASA claimed it plans to send a spacecraft with Perseverance, Mars research vehicle on July 30. This is mentioned in the message on the NASA website

"Due to launch vehicle processing delays in preparation for spacecraft mate operations, NASA and United Launch Alliance have moved the first launch attempt of the Mars 2020 mission to no earlier than July 30", reads the message. "A liquid oxygen sensor line presented off-nominal data during the Wet Dress Rehearsal, and additional time is needed for the team to inspect and evaluate. Flight analysis teams have expanded the mission launch opportunities to August 15 and are examining if the launch period may be extended further into August".
