NASA releases video of Perseverance landing


The American space agency unveiled this Monday the color video of the landing of its rover “Persevere” on the red planet, a first of its kind.

Mission teams from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California recovered 30 gigabytes of data and more than 23,000 images of the vehicle descending to the surface. These videos are among the 4,500 images that NASA planned to release on Monday.

Last week, “Perseverance” entered the atmosphere of Mars with a protective envelope and descent stage called “Skycrane,” which ignited rocket thrusters to slow its descent near the surface. The beam featured four cameras to capture the landing sequence: one attached to its upward facing protective casing, one on the descent stage, and two on either side of the rover. Together, they captured incredible views of the descent of the spacecraft, and a microphone on board Perseverance also picked up the sounds once the rover was on the surface.

The data began arriving through NASA’s Deep Space Network last Thursday and Friday, as the team studied data on the spacecraft’s health. As a reminder, Perseverance is the fifth NASA vehicle to have successfully made the trip without a hitch. It is nevertheless the first to post the objective of finding, in the years to come, proof of past life on the red planet.
