NASA, MarsOn July 30, 2020, a new generation spacecraft launched Perseverance from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida, USA, to investigate potential traces of life in Perseverance, who landed on Mars successfully on February 19, sent the first image he took with the message “Hello World, my first look at my eternal house” to the Earth.
“SOME SHAKE AND A LIGHT LANDING ON THE GROUND”
NASA shared new footage of Perseverance’s successful landing on Mars 3.5 billion years ago in what is thought to be an ancient lake, called the Jezerk Crater. In the post, the expressions “A little shaking, a little engine throttling and a slight landing on the ground” were used.
500 GRAMS OF ROCKS AND SOIL WILL BRING TO THE WORLD
It is planned that Perseverance will bring 500 grams of rock and soil samples to Earth, which he will collect during 1 Mars year (about 1 Earth year). Perseverance is also expected to conduct an experiment on producing oxygen for future astronauts in the carbon dioxide-rich Martian atmosphere during his tenure.
