The US space agency NASA’s rover landed on the surface of Mars and is now back to work. NASA has sent a picture of the rover after landing on Mars. Which NASA posted with its Twitter handle. This is the first time such a scene has been captured on camera.

NASA has shared several images of this scene from the parachute landing of the rover, showing a scene from some satellites. The image was taken from a high-resolution video of a spacecraft, the same spacecraft that carried the rover into space.

This is seen as a major technological advancement because the satellite – the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter – was about 700 kilometers away from perseverance and was traveling at a speed of three kilometers per second.

“You can see the dust from the rover’s engines,” said Adam Steltzer, the principal engineer who took the shot just two meters above the surface. The robot scene below, he said, would become an important figure in the history of space exploration.

A color image associated with the mission has also been released where the surface of Mars is visible. Perseverance has 23 cameras and 2 microphones. Another color photograph shows the rover with six wheels and several rocks that are more than 6 billion years old.

NASA engineers said the perseverance situation is quite right and they are instructing them to do more. NASA Deputy Project Scientist Katie Stack Morgan said, “The questions we must ask are whether the rock in the image is from a volcanic source or a sedimentary source.”

More pictures will appear next week

In the near future, Perseverance will take out the stick on its so that there will be special scientific cameras. Which will take special pictures which will be published next week.

The two images, taken shortly after the rover’s landing, released on Thursday, were in low resolution and black-and-white due to limited data ratios.
NASA expects more resolution images and videos to come in the coming days, but it is not yet known if this is the first time it has recorded sound on Mars using a microphone.
