Perseverance Rover’s Descent and Touchdown on Mars (Official NASA Video)

NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance mission captured thrilling footage of its rover landing in Mars' Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021. The real footage in this video was captured by several cameras that are part of the rover's entry, descent, and landing suite. The views include a camera looking down from the spacecraft's descent stage (a kind of rocket-powered jet pack that helps fly the rover to its landing site), a camera on the rover looking up at the descent stage, a camera on the top of the aeroshell (a capsule protecting the rover) looking up at that parachute, and a camera on the bottom of the rover looking down at the Martian surface.

The audio embedded in the video comes from the mission control call-outs during entry, descent, and landing.

    How did you at NASA get a drone to fly on MARS that has no atmosphere, and no oxygen?

  15. David Jack

    David Jack21 tunti sitten

    Oxygen is not necessary for flight, though oxygen does exist in the atmosphere. Also, if you were taught it has "no atmosphere" you were taught by someone that didn't know what they were talking about. However tenuous, it does have an atmosphere. Even the Moon has a very thin atmosphere. The drone has not flown yet. The window for the first flight begins 11 Apr 2021. It is not impossible to fly with low atmospheric pressure. It has been done many times on Earth, including during testing of this drone.

    There is an atmopshere, 1% air pressure compared to Earth, but its there. After all, they used a drag chute for slowdown after reentry ^^

    Been reading some of the comments and everybody's getting all emotional and misty eyed over this Mars landing. Stop yourselves. Yeah, it's all mind- blowing technology and all but, what are we doing or accomplishing. We can't survive on Mars. I knew that when I was in 2nd grade. At least not live a normal life as we now know it. Seems like alot of wasted time and money. Landed on the moon more than 50 yrs. ago and all we got out of it was a bunch of rocks. The ISS has benefited us how. Let's concentrate on the planet that has 7 billion humans living on it. Lets spend some more time and money working on making this a better and safer planet. I just don't get it. What's the big picture,"The Plan."100 yrs from now we'll be doing the same thing. Counting down another rover landing on another planet..... for what? "The space program is morally indefensible, not in itself, but because it has been given priority over the feeding and clothing and housing of the poor majority of the human race".......
