The person in charge of the Perseverance mission that landed on Mars last Thursday has sent the first high-resolution color photo. Wanderer Descend to the red planet and its landing point. His first videos will be shown tonight.
after that Wanderer perseverance NASA’s NASA will successfully land on the surface of Mars last Thursday and send the first black and white photo. Engineers and scientists from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) provided their first color image.
One of them has been captured from a stage or device descending to the surface of Mars and is part of the surface of Mars. video, Although it is still being transmitted to Earth and processed. This recording is one of Perseverance’s advancements in its predecessor, Curiosity. the film Stop motion animation Landing (frame by frame).
Unlike the previous rover, most Perseverance cameras can capture Color image. When landing, there are two dangerous cameras (Hazcams) capturing the view from the front and rear of the aircraft. Wanderer, Showing one of its wheels on Martian land.

NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) space probe also captured Perseverance from space, using a special high-resolution camera to capture the spacecraft’s parachuting into the sky. Kratt Lake.

It is planned to launch a small pyrotechnic bomb this Friday to release the Perseverance Mast ( Wanderer) Fixed on its cover. Navigation cameras (Navcams) used for driving can take a panoramic view of the car deck. Wanderer And its surroundings. These navigation cameras share the space on the mast with two scientific cameras: Mastcam-Z with zoom and a laser instrument called SuperCam.
Today, the first batch of videos captured from Perseverance will be provided, and in the next few days, engineers will carefully study the data of the system. Wanderer, They will update the software and start testing their various musical instruments. In the next few weeks, Perseverance will also test the robotic arm and make the first short trip.

Perseverance will take at least one or two months to find a flat place to drop Ingenuity, which is a miniature helicopter connected to the “belly” of the aircraft. WandererIt took even longer for him to finally “walk” or roll, start his scientific mission and search for his first Martian rock and sediment samples.
About the task
The main goal of the Perseverance Project on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life.This Wanderer It will characterize the earth’s geology and past climate, pave the way for humans to explore the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and store Martian rocks and boulders (broken rocks and dust).
Subsequent NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) missions will send spacecraft to Mars to collect these stored samples and return them to Earth for in-depth analysis.
Perseverance is fifth Wanderer After Sojouner in 1997, NASA placed on Mars, followed by Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity. They have sent many photos and movies. Stop motion animation The red planet.
