NASA publishes the first video of the Perseverance landing on Mars (videos)

Several photos had already been published Thursday and last Friday, this is the first video of the landing.

LThe US space agency NASA released spectacular new images of Perseverance’s landing on Mars on Monday.

Just over three minutes long, the published video reveals the images of several cameras located in different places on the module, after its entry into the Martian atmosphere: one shows the deployment of the supersonic parachute, another, located under the rover, the Martian soil approaching, and two other views show the rover gradually deposited on the ground, suspended by three cables.

However, no sound could be recorded during the vertiginous descent.

Two images had already been released Thursday and Friday after landing, but they were of poor quality and in black and white.

The most sophisticated robotic jeep to ever land on Mars was launched on July 30 from Cape Canaveral aboard an Atlas-5 launcher. The risky dive in the thin atmosphere, while the speed was still 20,000 km / h, and, suspended from a giant parachute, the descent into the crater of Jezero, went smoothly.
