Not long ago, humanity’s most ambitious mission to another planet reached its destination. On February 18, when the Perseverance probe landed on Jezero Crater, the world will be amazed and hopefully open a new chapter in space exploration.
And thanks to the numerous cameras on board (23 of which are the most interplanetary missions ever), we will experience the entire landing process in high definition-not real-time, real, but original, because from millions of miles Send outside.
To give us a taste of what’s going to happen, NASA released a short landing trailer in December, even though the third-person method we see here is not what we will actually get (all in the rover and its landing There are 23 cameras on the device, instead of capturing moments in planets or space), this is still an incredible experience-check it out below.
NASA plans to land the plane next month. To this end, it will try to attract the attention of the world through the mission’s website, and all pictures will be posted on the website once they are released.
“We are working hard to make final adjustments so that perseverance is in an ideal position in one of the most interesting places on Mars,”
Perseverance is based on the same platform as the Curiosity rover, and once deployed, it will begin many of its complex tasks. These include looking for signs of life, tracking natural resources and hazards, or assessing the livability of the environment. It can even try to generate oxygen, which may be the first attempt at terrain modification.
