Nasa’s Mars rover Perseverance taken 3 pictures after landing on Mars, NASA rover Perseverance sent these images later. After Thursday night (Indian time).
Just as NASA’s rover ‘Perseverance’ was able to touch the red planet’s chest like a feather, it sent a mind-blowing picture before it landed. No other spacecraft has been able to send such images before landing on Mars. Within a few moments of the new images came again.

On Friday, NASA released three photos on its Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
One of them shows a bundle of cables or wires scattered on the ground of Mars. Which were in NASA spacecraft. After the NASA spacecraft entered the atmosphere of the Red Planet, a bundle of cables helped to reduce the speed of the parachute to zero and bring the NASA lander and its rover Perseverance to the chest of Mars. Exactly like feathers. NASA landers and rovers have landed safely on Mars for them.
NASA said the spacecraft did not send any still images while landing on Mars. Sent a few videos of several moments. NASA released the still image from there on Friday.
What moment did the spacecraft take this images?
Adam Steltzner, the chief engineer of NASA’s Mars mission, told a news conference on Friday that the image was taken when the spacecraft was only 2 meters or 6 feet above the surface of Mars. Dust was also seen flying from the ground of Mars for the spacecraft during the landing.
According to Steltzner, the three straight white lines in the picture are actually mechanical anchors. These helped the rover touch the red planet slowly. like a feather. The cables or wires that look like ropes at the top of the picture work differently. During the landing, information about how many ditches and where the plane is in the area has been sent to the lander and rover perseverance through those cables. After landing, 21-foot ( 6.4-meter) long cables were cut by NASA’s lander itself.
At the same time, NASA has released two more beautiful images. The images were taken by NASA Lander on a super cam above his head, just before and after landing on the Red Planet. Each is a high-resolution picture.
Earlier on Friday morning (Indian time), NASA released the first picture of Mars sent by the spacecraft. The speed of the spacecraft slowed down to just 1.6 miles per hour, or 2.6 kilometers per hour while helping the sky crane in the sky of Mars.
The orbiting NASA spacecraft Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) monitored the orbit of Mars for a safe landing, on the 49-kilometer-diameter Jejoro Crater and the rover’s perseverance. At that time, the MRO took pictures of a wide area of Mars.
According to NASA, the next picture was taken by NASA Lander shortly after landing. The rocks that appear to be scattered on the back of the red planet are at least 3.6 billion years old.
It is to be noted that a few days ago, the spacecraft ‘Amal’ of the United Arab Emirates entered the orbit of Mars. The Chinese spacecraft Tianwen-1 entered the orbit of the red planet on Wednesday.
Beijing wants to reach many milestones in space exploration in the next few years. They passed the first stage of that ambitious campaign today. It will be in orbit until next May. The rover will land on the surface of the planet and try to find signs of life there. But America has won the race for victory.
