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.
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 withAnd the .
