NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance mission captured thrilling footage of its rover landing in Mars' Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021. The real footage in this video was captured by several cameras that are part of the rover's entry, descent, and landing suite. The views include a camera looking down from the spacecraft's descent stage (a kind of rocket-powered jet pack that helps fly the rover to its landing site), a camera on the rover looking up at the descent stage, a camera on the top of the aeroshell (a capsule protecting the rover) looking up at that parachute, and a camera on the bottom of the rover looking down at the Martian surface.

The audio embedded in the video comes from the mission control call-outs during entry, descent, and landing.

  • Why is it that we don’t send multiple rovers and drones to varying sites on Mars at the same time? Or the moon for that matter. Why is it always one at a time. If the response is money i think that’s just a front.

  • At the speed the artificial intelligence evolves humans might not have to risk their lives for a long period of time; and Humans' landing on Mars might look like our landing on the Moon. The latter did not bring such a breakthrough as expected: we are still far away from colonisation or even from a limited use of the Moon resources. If UFO phenomena are true, I guess they also might be some manifestations of artificially managed robotic devices.

  • *Has NASA confirmed whether or not there is water on Mars?* *Either on or under the surface. Or is it just a theory?*

    Michael DavidMichael David8 timmar sedan
    • @zincbak warrior I keep reading that the ice on and under the Martian surface is frozen gas, not frozen water. Could water from another source be imported to Mars? Mars looks so much like Earth, some places anyway, but to make Mars habitable for humans is going to take a long time, and more technological advancement. For the foreseeable future, only robots will be inhabiting Mars, including humanoid robots. Which have come a long way over the years. The humanoid robots from DARPA and Japan are particularly impressive, and they don't need things like 1G gravity, water and everything else associated with Earth.

  • Человек никогда не сможет жить на Марсе: покинув энерго-информационные поля Земли, он потеряет разумность, а это значит, что полёт землянина на Марс - путешествие в один конец. Разумно ли тратить колоссальные средства на несбыточный проект колонизации Марса в условиях, когда под угрозой сама жизнь на Земле?! Климатические и социальные потрясения поставили человечество на грань гибели. Реальную информацию на эту тему даёт Барановский В.В. на канале "Перспектива", отвечая на вопросы зрителей.

    • @Георгий Соколов , я не против науки (сын занимался магнитным полем Земли в НИИ), но тратить колоссальные средства на несбыточное, когда еле-еле сводим концы с концами на родной планете - это безумие. Посмотрите проект "Боль Земли" - нас захлёстывают природные катаклизмы, "Обманутое человечество" (автор А. Паламар) - что реально сегодня нужно делать.
