Mission on the Red Planet – Nasa rover sends videos and audio recordings from Mars – News


  •  The  US rover “Perseverance” has sent the first videos of its landing and audio recordings from Mars to Earth.
  • Such video and sound recordings have never been made before, said the US space agency Nasa at a press conference.

New photos were also published.

“Ingenuity” (in German: ingenuity) is still attached to the underside of “Perseverance”. But in 30 to 60 days the helicopter is supposed to explore Mars from a bird’s eye view. It would be the first flight of an aircraft over another planet.

On the way since Thursday

© www.de24.news The  “Perseverance” rover, weighing around 1,000 kilograms and the size of a small car, landed on Thursday – after 203 days of flight and 472 million kilometers traveled – with a risky maneuver in a dry lake called “Jezero Crater”. Perseverance is to investigate this lake with a diameter of around 45 kilometers over the next two years.
