3 Months On Mars: Perseverance
In just 3 short months, the Perseverance rover has captured over 70,000 images, multiple audio recordings and more than 4 videos of the Mars helicopter in flight.
Strange noises, undisclosed family portraits and relics brought from Earth are just some of the things revealed over the first leg of this incredible mission.
This, is 3 Months on Mars.
18th February, 2021. The Perseverance rover makes history by recording it’s descent and landing.
A coded message is hidden in the colouring of the parachute, which reads the phrase: ‘Dare Mighty Things’.
The heat shield is released, giving us a clear view of the surface.
The landing is fully automated; the craft is now checking for the best spot to land.
The sky-crane manoeuvre is initiated.
The video footage you are watching is currently being transmitted to the rover through a cable, before the cable is cut and the descent stage flies away to crash land.
Watch the video to find out what happens to the Perseverance rover and Ingenuity helicopter after landing!
It is currently unknown what the rover will find during the next 3 months, but we will be here to document it. This video is the start of a special series following the Perseverance rover as it makes astounding new discoveries. Be sure to check back in 3 months time for the next installment!
