Perseverance Mars rover mission

Unread post by robberto88 »

Curiosity Rover has captured stunning images of the rare, shimmering clouds that exist on Mars. clouds are rare on the Red Planet due to its thin, dry atmosphere. Clouds can typically be found at the planet’s equator during the coldest parts of a Martian year when Mars is farthest from the sun.

An interesting video about Perseverance and Mars soil. That one kilogram of Mars soil will have an amazing price tag, but also an incredible value. Much more than 1 kilogram of pure cocaine.

This point is a bit out of this thread but still, it`s related to Mars exploration. I'd like to mention Rosalind Franklin Mars rover mission. This mission will attempt to search for life on Mars. The launch is scheduled for 2022. Interesting fact, that this is the first Mars mission by British aerospace companies.

Having tested a bristling array of instruments on its robotic arm, NASA’s latest Mars rover gets down to business: probing rocks and dust for evidence of past life. https://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/signs-of- ... s-the-hunt

A cool little fact is that to take off the cover of the extraction head Perseverance drilled a hole with the cover leaving it in the Martian surface!

Last news from the Perseverance mission. The 11th flight was made on Wednesday. The mission profile was designed to stay ahead of the rover – supporting its future science goals in the “South Séítah” region, where it will be able to gather aerial imagery in support of future Perseverance Mars rover surface operations in the area.

Moreover, I wanna add that NASA wants to use Ingenuity, which has spent $ 80 million in development, to explore areas that a six-wheeled rover cannot reach, as well as to create 3D maps of the planet's surface and solve other scientific problems. The purpose of the rover's mission is to try to find traces of possible existence in the distant past of life on Mars.
