Dr. Kent Montgomery, the director of the Texas A&M-Commerce Planetarium, says the rover on the Mars 2020 mission will include 23 tiny, high-def cameras, meaning the number and quality of pictures we will see will be far greater and better than before.  We will see nearly live (slightly delayed) images as the spacecraft hurtles toward Mars.  The mission will launch in 2019.
