Welcome to Mars, the craft of perseverance. This stunning view was captured during the landing as the rover was lowered to the surface.


This story is part of Welcome to the planet MarsOur series on exploring the red planet.

We have a new space exploration iconic image, and it’s just as powerful as the best Pictures of Apollo the moon. The NASA rover has successfully landed on the surface of Mars On Thursday, he had a set of cameras to watch the event.

At first the rover brought back some Low resolution surface shotsBut NASA is starting to release some truly amazing things, including a landing show of the rover being lowered to Mars using drama. Sky Crane maneuver.

The moment my team dreamed of for years is now a reality The perseverance team tweeted Because she shares the image. «Dare to do great things.»

The image gives a full view of the rover, with the rocky and dusty surface of Mars below. «This shot from a ‘jetpack’ camera caught me in mid-air, just before my wheels landed,» NASA said in a follow-up tweet.

NASA’s Mar Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) HiRise Camera team also provided a stunning snapshot of the vehicle landing on the surface. MRO was 435 miles (700 kilometers) from the tenacity at the time, but could still see the rover and parachute descent stage.

NASA’s Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter captured this distant image of the rover lander landing to Mars. The interior photo shows a closer look.

An MRO is great due to how difficult it was to capture it. «The maximum distance and high speeds of the two spacecraft were challenging conditions requiring precise timing and for the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter to the top and spin so hard to the left so that perseverance could be seen by HiRise at just the right moment,» The HiRise team said in a statement Friday.

The rover is busy sending data from the red planet. The entry, landing, and landing, or EDL, has been captured by cameras and microphones, which should ultimately give us an unprecedented look at the infamous «seven minutes of terror» that a landing on Mars requires.

NASA expects to launch more landers by Monday, and we hope to have a voice to participate, assuming the systems are operating as planned. Until then, this first and stunning photo from the EDL could become the latest entry into the Satellite Photo Hall of Fame, along with Pale blue dot And the Pillars of Creation.
