The “Mars 2020” mission rover of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), perseverance, Is the first high-definition image taken from the landing site of the Jezero crater on Mars.
The photo was taken with equipment on February 21 Mastcam-Z, A camera located on the mast or “head” of Percy. This is the second panoramic photo since the rover arrived on Earth since another similar photo was taken with a lower quality navigation camera on February 20.
The Mastcam-Z instrument is Dual camera system Allows you to zoom, shoot high-definition video, panoramic color snapshots and 3D images of the surface of Mars. With it, the robot can provide comprehensive and detailed information about distant and close objects.
These cameras will help the research team evaluate Geological history with weather The characteristics of Jezero crater, which can identify rocks and sediments that require more accurate evaluation by other rover instruments.
Similarly, the camera can help the mission team determine which rocks should be sampled to preserve and prepare for possible missions. Back to earth.
New panoramic photo by 142 picturesReveals the crater edge and cliff face of the ancient river delta. The instrument can display three to five millimeters of detail near the vehicle, and distant objects can display two to three meters of detail.
Mastcam-Z lead researcher Jim Bell of Arizona State University School of Earth and Space Exploration pointed out that Perseverance is “in a sweet place” on Mars, “where you can see the spirit, opportunity and curiosity.” Similar characteristics of the landing site”.
