NASA’s probe surveillance has reached the surface of Mars to find life. Perseverance has sent some high-resolution images of the red planet taken from its camera to the earth at the time of landing. It also includes a color photo showing the surface of Mars. NASA has equipped the spacecraft with 25 cameras and two microphones.
The six-wheeled rover has landed on Mars and is working on gathering information there. The expedition will also try to bring pieces of rocks from the planet, which can prove to be important in finding answers to the question of life on Mars. Scientists believe that if there had ever been life on Mars, it would have been three to four billion years ago when water flowed on the planet.
Nase’s Mars mission was launched on 30 July last year from Florida, USA. The vehicle reached Mars on Friday after traveling for nearly seven months. It took eleven and a half minutes to reach the signal about the successful landing. Perseverance is the largest rover ever sent by NASA. This is the ninth Mars mission of the US Space Agency since the 1970s.
Explain that vehicles from the United Arab Emirates and China have also entered the orbit near Mars. China had sent Tianwen-1 to the Red Planet on July 23 last year as part of its Mars mission. It reached the orbit of Mars on 10 February. Its lander is likely to land in the Utopia Planitia region in May 2021. At the same time, the UAE’s Mars Mission Hope has also entered Mars orbit this month.
