First Clear Images from NASA's Perseverance Mars Rover Look Amazing
The first super clear images from NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover are in, and … wow!
You can see it’s going to be a rocky road — literally — for the Rover when it gets going and cruises around the red planet. NASA had a little fun with these images when the spacecraft’s Twitter account (yes, it’s got its own) tweeted the images … saying, “I love rocks. Look at these right next to my wheel. Are they volcanic or sedimentary? What story do they tell? Can’t wait to find out.” Same, TBH.
NASA also showed a clear image of the open horizon. The pics come one Earth day after the Mars Rover stuck the landing Thursday … the tail end of an incredible 293 million mile journey.
As we reported … Perseverance blasted off from Florida’s Cape Canaveral back in July and touched down at exactly 12:56 PM PT on Thursday. Pretty cool moment when the folks over at NASA’s mission control celebrated the landing and fist-bumped from California’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
It’s going to be fun seeing more images rolling in soon. As we told you … the SUV-sized spacecraft also brought along a small helicopter along for the first time ever.
Can’t wait for the aerial shots!
