Since landing on Mars last February, NASA’s Perseverance rover has been exploring the Martian surface, collecting samples and capturing thousands of photos of its movements. With the year 2021 almost over, the space agency has shared some of the best images taken by the mission.
Over the span of ten months, Perseverance has uploaded more than 183,000 images. Since these photos began to be published, Internet users have been able to vote for their favorites. The photo that has the most “likes” after seven days is named the “Image of the week”.
To highlight the best of the best, the mission’s Twitter account just uploaded a short video of its most popular photos of the year. CC / JML
My passion for rock collecting is matched only by my love of photography. Thanks for voting on your favorite new images each week – looking forward to many more to come!
