NASA has released new photos from the Perseverance mission. The new visuals include the first color photograph taken by the spacecraft and stunning shots like landing moments taken from orbit.
New photos continue to come from NASA’s historic Mars mission, Perseverance. NASA has now shared new photos of the spacecraft’s landing moments. Among the new images is a very nice photo taken from orbit.
Speaking about the photos from the Perseverance mission, NASA staff member Pauline Hwang said, “We’ve received more photos than I can count. More than I can show from my fingers. The transmission of the images was incredibly exciting, the whole team went wild … Our scientists immediately started zooming in and examining the stones in the photos.” she used her expressions.
There is currently a light delay of about 11 minutes between Mars and Earth. Communication with the spacecraft is slow due to the enormous distances and insufficient capacity. However, of course, it will continue to send Perseverance data to Earth, albeit slowly.
NASA also captured a high-quality video of the landing moments on Mars during the Perseverance mission. Perseverance’s landing video marked a historic first in the Red Planet missions. This video is expected to be delivered to Earth and shared with the world in the upcoming period.
Looking at the importance of shared photographs from a different perspective, Steltzner, the chief engineer of Perseverance, compared the Mars photographs to the first Saturn photographs taken in the 60s, saying, “How many bright minds have these fantastic and iconic photographs have taken to space exploration? contributes to the addition of new iconic visuals. ” used the expressions.
The Perseverance spacecraft landed on the surface of the Red Planet on February 18 at 23.55 BST. Perseverance, descending into the 49 km wide Jezero crater, thought to be home to a large river and lake in the past, said, “Was there life on Mars?” will be busy looking for an answer to his question.
