I've been thinking about it all day but I couldn't find an answer. Any idea?

 The trip to Mars will take about seven months and about 300 million miles (480 million kilometers). The spacecraft departs Earth at a speed of about 24,600 mph (about 39,600 kph). During that journey, engineers have several opportunities to adjust the spacecraft’s flight path, to make sure its speed and direction are best for arrival at Jezero Crater on Mars. The first tweak to the spacecraft’s flight path happens about 15 days after launch.
