American Space and Aviation Circle (NASA), The exploration vehicle called “Perseverance” Marsreleased the landing footage.
NASA shared the images of the landing on the surface of Mars from 3 different camera angles from the Twiiter account opened specially for Perseverance (Azim).
In the video, which started with the opening of the parachute to reduce the speed of the vehicle entering the Martian atmosphere, it was seen that the moment of Perseverance floating in the sky for a while in the lower camera angle was clearly recorded.
With the landing of the vehicle on the Red Planet as planned, cries of joy were heard at the NASA headquarters, and it was a first for landing on a planet in space.
Perseverance, after launching from the platform in Florida on June 30, 2020, managed to land on the surface of Mars on February 20, after a journey of approximately 7 months and 470 million kilometers.
THE MOST ADVANCED VEHICLE
Built in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California and powered by plutonium fuel, Perseveance is known for having the most advanced technological features among the vehicles sent to Mars so far.
The space agency announced that $ 2.4 billion was spent on infrastructure work for the realization of the new mission on the Red Planet, and $ 300 million for the system that enabled the vehicle to land and operate.
Perseverance, which has a chemical analyzer, 20 cameras, rock drill to collect samples, a robotic “hand” and a tiny helicopter, is planned to stay on Mars for 2 years to explore the surface.
