The robotic object has a total of 23 cameras, so that the “Red Planet” can be recorded as much as possible. Website Cnet Gathered the mains in a video, which you can see below:
Cameras have different engineering or science intentions. All captured photos have been sent back to Earth. They are stored in a database with raw files, which are available on the Internet.
This is because all data on scientific missions carried out by the US Space Agency must, according to current law, be sent to the public domain.
Another image released by NASA in its official Twitter account shows a rock being hit by a strongly present laser. As you can see in the post above, if you get closer to the image, you can see many holes made by the instrument.
The hole will be about 15 cm wide and will be located in the right corner of the stone. The objective of the initiative was to investigate the chemical components present in steam generated by the use of high temperatures.
In the perforated rock it was possible to find a basalt composition. The substance is common in igneous or volcanic rocks that are present on both Mars and Earth. The rover has been on a mission in the Martian region searching for signs of microorganism life.
