After landing one day Practically perfect, NASA released the first color photographs of the Perseverance Rover on the surface of Mars. The images were posted on the robot’s official Twitter channel, @NasaPersevere.
The first image is of the rover, still attached to the Skycran platform by cable, seconds before it touches the planet. According to the agency, at the time of the photo the vehicle was about two meters from Martian soil.
The image is just one frame from the lineage video that is still being broadcast and processed on Earth.
“This is something we have never seen before. It was amazing, and the team was taken aback. At a press conference this Friday (19), Rover Entry, Decent and Landing Process Deputy Leader Aaron Stehura said, “It was a taste to be able to win this and share it with the world.”
The second picture is a close-up of one of the wheels of the fixture, such as Martian clay rocks in the background. “I love rocks. Look at those people close to my wheel. Are they volcanoes or sedimentary? What story do they tell? I can’t wait to find out, “said the robot.
The third photo shows an “open horizon, with a lot to explore”.
There is also an image captured by the camera Alas Alas From Mars Reconnaissance Satellite. It is possible to see in detail the landing module, which protected the rover when it entered the atmosphere, suspended from its parachute.
Upon arrival on Mars, it will undergo a period of rigorous testing and adjustment, followed by the preparation of five Ingenuity helicopter flights, before the period of scientific discovery begins. See what First 100 days Of the rover on the red planet.
