After the US space agency Nasa successfully carried out the landing of the Perseverance rover on the planet Mars, today they presented footage of the exciting event, and also revealed the first photos. Nasa also released the first sound recording from the red planet, namely a weak gust of wind.
The three-minute, 25-second-long video shows the entire landing process, which was filmed by several cameras after the rover entered the atmosphere of the red planet. The microphone did not work during landing, and the rover was able to pick up sound when it landed on Mars. “This is the first time we have managed to capture an event like the landing on Mars,” he told a news conference today. Michael Watkins, director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, where the rover was manufactured.
“These pictures and videos are what we’ve been dreaming about for years,” he added Allen Chen, who was responsible for the landing. He added that with the help of the video, NASA teams will be able to better understand what is happening during such a landing.
NASA’s rover Perseverance (Perseverance, op. Cit.) Successfully landed on the planet Mars in a crater named Lake after the eponymous place in Bosnia and Herzegovina on Thursday. A few seconds after landing, the rover had already sent the first images from Mars.

The most technologically advanced rover
The 1,040-kilogram vehicle is equipped with more than 20 cameras. In addition to these, the rover is also equipped with a number of scientific instruments for measuring geology and collecting samples. The Rover is as big as a small passenger car, according to STA, has a robotic arm with a range of about two meters, equipped with a camera, a drill for drilling into Mars and a small chemical laboratory.
The inertia is only a few inches larger than NASA’s previous rover on Mars Curiosity, but it is about 100 kilograms heavier and has microphones compared to other rovers, which will also transmit sounds from the planet Mars to Earth for the first time.
The Perseverance vehicle, launched by NASA almost seven months ago from a launch site in Cape Canaveral, will look for possible signs of life on the red planet and study its atmosphere. According to STA, the fifth and most technologically advanced NASA rover on Mars was assembled in NASA’s laboratory in California, and its mission is expected to last two years.
The famous scientist begged them for ten years to listen to him. Fortunately, they did.
