Last week, humanity experienced another historical event with the arrival of Perseverance loving You. The NASA rover landed safely on the surface of the red planet to begin its research mission. However, it is until today that the US space agency shares the first landing video. The material, just over three minutes long, shows us the last moments before touching the Martian soil.
Of course, it is a spectacular video because of the clear images that we can see of Mars. The video starts from the moment Perseverance’s supersonic parachute deploys until it touches the surface. If you followed the transmission on February 18, surely you caught the tension that was experienced in the NASA control center. Now we can see what happened to the rover during that unforgettable moment.
It is not the only material that NASA has shared after the landing of Perseverance. In fact, the same day of its arrival the agency released the first images of the rover. In later days he did the same with more better quality photos and, as many expected, finally in color. In the same way, some amateurs created amazing videos using the images offered by NASA. You can see an example below:
The Perseverance Task
As we inform you here in Hypertext, the Perseverance integrates 23 cameras. But they are not only to delight humanity with the landscapes of Mars, also to carry out its multiple missions. Recall that the rover aims to “search for signs of ancient microbial life, characterize the geology and climate of the planet, collect carefully selected rock and sediment samples.”
“The team is overwhelmed with excitement and joy to have successfully landed another rover on the surface of Mars. When we make such investments, we make them for humanity, and we make them as a gesture of our humanity,” stated Adam Steltzner, Perseverance chief engineer. Of course, it should give great peace of mind to successfully land a robot that cost $ 2.7 billion.
