Washington, Jun 19 (PTI) NASA has installed a webcam that allows the public to get a live, bird's-eye view of its Mars 2020 rover as it takes shape, the US space agency said.

The move will allow people to watch as engineers and technicians assemble at and test the rover the NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in the US before it embarks next year.

"There is so much happening and changing in the clean room, I come here every opportunity I get," said John McNamee of JPL.

"It is great that we can share this part of our journey to the Red Planet with the public anytime they want," said McNamee, project manager of Mars 2020.
