The journey to Mars is sitting at home.‘Perseverance’ sent pictures from the Jezero crater on Mars. The water of the river dried up due to the impact of the asteroid. That was about 400 million years ago. This time, NASA’s robotic vehicle Perseverance sent a picture of the dry river delta on Mars. Not only the dry islands of the river also the rugged rocky lands, the red lands, and the sky, the dusty deserts, all these have been captured by the camera of that robotic vehicle.
‘Perseverance’ touched the ground of the red planet on 18th February. It sent a picture of the rocky surface of Mars at the time of landing. The new pictures match exactly with him. On February 21, it rotated 360 degrees with a high-resolution camera and captured hundreds of scenes. NASA has created a panoramic view of the surroundings with around 142 images. the general public is better acquainted with the landscape of Mars.
At the moment, ‘Perseverance’ is located in the Jezero crater of Mars. From there, the camera captures the surrounding scene with its 135-400 millimeter Mastcam-Z dual camera, whose lens images can be zoomed up to 30,000 pixels. The image released by NASA clearly shows the mountains in the distance. Even objects up to 3 to 5 millimeters can be seen clearly in this picture.
That high-powered camera is also capable of taking 3D pictures and videos. According to NASA, Bring any pebbles and stones from Mars to Earth for testing will be determined by that camera. Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration and San Diego’s Maleni Space Science Systems have combined all the tools and technologies of the Mastcam-Z.
To find out if life ever existed on Mars. ‘Perseverance’ touched the ground of Mars on 18th February. Over the next few years, it will be a task with digging up soil, collecting rocks, fossils, and soil samples, and sending them to Earth by 2030. Scientists will test them in the laboratory and come to a final conclusion. Tell me, can the red planet make suitable for human habitation at all.
