Perseverance Rover’s Descent and Touchdown on Mars (Official NASA Video)

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.

    • @Mark Brummett Half again further away, I know, but in every real photo from Mars the Sun is much smaller in the sky. Photos from other rovers. I've also seen pictures and video of a blue sky over Mars from Perseverance, as well as a large Sun. Have you seen similar footage from other Mars rovers? Please point a couple out to me. I honestly want to believe that NASA has succeeded with the Perseverance mission. I do not want to believe that it's being faked. Remote places on Earth like the Atacama Desert and Devon Island, where NASA has done rover research, make it possible.

      Michael DavidMichael David5 өдрийн өмнө
    • "So much further away"? It's about 1.5 au (astronomical unit is the measurement used standard in this solar system; it represents the average distance from the Sun the earth is, which is around 93,000,000 miles. In other words it's about 1.5 times further than earth (abt 142 million miles). Which, using math, would make the sun appear about 2/3 as big.

  • Been reading some of the comments and everybody's getting all emotional and misty eyed over this Mars landing. Stop yourselves. Yeah, it's all mind- blowing technology and all but, what are we doing or accomplishing. We can't survive on Mars. I knew that when I was in 2nd grade. At least not live a normal life as we now know it. Seems like alot of wasted time and money. Landed on the moon more than 50 yrs. ago and all we got out of it was a bunch of rocks. The ISS has benefited us how. Let's concentrate on the planet that has 7 billion humans living on it. Lets spend some more time and money working on making this a better and safer planet. I just don't get it. What's the big picture,"The Plan."100 yrs from now we'll be doing the same thing. Counting down another rover landing on another planet..... for what? "The space program is morally indefensible, not in itself, but because it has been given priority over the feeding and clothing and housing of the poor majority of the human race".......
