This panorama, taken on Feb. 20, 2021, by the Navigation Cameras, or Navcams, aboard NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover, was stitched together from six individual images after they were sent back to Earth.

A key objective for Perseverance’s mission on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will characterize the planet’s geology and past climate, pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith.

Subsequent missions, currently under consideration by NASA in cooperation with ESA (European Space Agency), would send spacecraft to Mars to collect these cached samples from the surface and return them to Earth for in-depth analysis.

The Mars 2020 Perseverance mission is part of NASA’s Moon to Mars exploration approach, which includes Artemis missions to the Moon that will help prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet.

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California built and manages operations of the Mars 2020 Perseverance rover for NASA.

  1. Spirit: sniff
    Opportunity: sniff
    Viking Lander: sniff

    BUT Perseverance did record and transmit the first audio from Mars. It sounded like…..atmosphere passing by a microphone. Wind?

  2. About the new weird sound from Mars. Previous summer I was stuck in sea sand with my car after failed attempts to go out I finally manage it with the help of a 4×4. Sand and rocks had been trapped inside the wheel mechanism and it sounded exactly like that.

  3. Sometimes I have this chilling feeling that this is exactly what earth would look like one day. And another being will be doing exactly what we are doing on Mars rite now🤔
