Mars 2020 AKA Perseverance arrived safely on Mars on Thursday afternoon and is in the process of transitioning to surface operations, preparing for years of exploration of Jezero crater - an ancient lake on Mars.
As of right now we're waiting for thousands of images to be downlinked from the descent and landing while the rover updates its software and deploys its instruments.
We're hoping for have some more substantial data on Monday.

  • Seeing a dead planet like Mars reminds me of the ongoing desertification of the earth. At least we can't kill anything on Mars! Or maybe?

  • if this concept has been proven to work safely for 99% of the time, cant be just shoot the same rover up, say, every year ? Maybe with a little variation in instruments or entirely new tools, so that they could start digging or building habitat asap.

    • @Blue Steelbabysteps. this was the first autopilot landing of any craft outside of Earth and was successful.. And you're complaining the skycrane didn't parallel park itself lol. Plenty of disposable pieces in space flight are just apart of the equation as of now but that's why space X self landing rockets are so advanced.

  • Why 6 wheels? Since 2001 the rovers the US has sent to Mars all have 6 wheels. Why 6, why not 4? Is 6 wheels more stable? I would think 4 wheels would be lighter and just as stable as 6.

    Dana Lee GibsonDana Lee GibsonDag sedan
    • They have independent motors, previous rovers have had wheels fail and the redundancy lets them continue.

    • What are you doing to make things better for humanity? Billions of years ago Mars was covered with water, it might have supported life even, and then its climate changed, the planet dried out and it’s now looks pretty dead. One reason scientists want to study Mars is because they’d like to understand what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen on Earth.

      Scott ManleyScott ManleyDag sedan
    • @Scott Manley I'm saying, what are we going to do on Mars? What's the point? What is the real plan? and Why? we know there's nothing living on Mars, what are we looking for? we also know, no one is going there any time soon. Just saying.

  • Slightly off-topic...The gravity problem on the trip to Mars can be solved by launching multiple numbers of starships for redundancy but more for counterbalance by creating a central hub consisting of one-Km long tethers connected to the nose of even numbers of starships and rotating them at one RPM. I can't figure out why this is not a good idea.

  • The lastest videos showing the landing are epic! Does anyone know why the landing proceedure is so complex and why they don't glide in like the shuttle, but then land vertically so that the vehicle could take off again? Seems odd to have something that can hover to drop a rover and then just fly off and crash.

  • Scott! You are going to want to learn about alluvial fans! I’ve lived in Death Valley in a very similar area geologically. I believe from personal experience and comparison that the vesiculated “rocks” we see are what I called “fluffy mudstone” In DV, the fluffy mud was typically down below the alluvial fan, just like Perseverence is. The fun thing about the alluvial fan here, is that it was formed by water flowing through a newly formed crater rim. The exciting thing there is that type of environment creates all kinds of useful mineralization. I myself have recovered gold and zircons from a similar impact here on earth at the Rock Elm disturbance.

  • Re Geology: I recall watching the Opportunity landing live. As the first pictures started coming back, the team realized that the rover had landed in a shallow crater(it was using the giant rolling balloon system to cushion the landing, then) and one of the images clearly showed layers of bedrock about 5 meters away. The team went nuts when they saw this because it was the first time a rover had ever been close to bedrock and not just topsoil, which opened up a huge new opportunity(sorry)for them to study rock strata and see if there was any trace of water locked in the deeper soil.....OH, OH, OH! The Monday press conference is starting right now!!
