Percision Rover has 23 cameras and two microphones installed to record the latest video and sound of Mars.
The US Space Agency NASA’s Perseverance Rover has sent the first color photo and own selfie to the world from the planet Mars. On Friday night, NASA shared with the whole world via social media. Not only this, for the first time a helicopter on another planet has also sent its first report to NASA. In this, the helicopter has told that everything is fine here after his landing. The temperature of Mars is also given in the report. It has a night temperature of minus 90 degrees Celsius.
Hello world, this is my first look
Perseverance Rover made a landing on an 820-foot deep crater called Jezero, the companion sharing his first selfie with the world. Mangal’s photo and selfie have been shared from Perseverance Rover’s social media account. It reads, ‘Hello world, my first look from my forever home’. Another post reads, ‘Another scene is seen behind me. Welcome to Jezero. ‘
Rover sent this first photo to NASA. Both the surface and the rover of Mars are visible in it.
NASA claims, the most accurate landing ever
Perseverance Rover landed on Mars on Thursday in search of life. It made landing on the most dangerous surface of Mars at Jaziro Crater at around 2 pm on Thursday and Friday, according to Indian time. There used to be water on this surface. NASA has claimed that this is the most accurate landing on a rover’s mars in history. The Perceived Rover will also bring samples of rocks from the Red Planet.
The 6-wheeled robot completed 47 million kilometers of travel in seven months and quickly reached its goal. The last seven minutes were extremely difficult and dangerous. At this time it came at a speed of 12 thousand miles per hour in just 7 minutes. This was followed by a landing.
The helicopter is sent for the first time with the rover. The helicopter has also sent its report to NASA.
Jaziro Crater was on the touchdown zone
NASA made Jaziro Crater the touchdown zone of the rover. Rabot landed here. Now it will collect complete information through satellite camera from here and then send it to NASA. This mission is the most advanced robotic explorer ever. According to scientists, the Jaziro crater is the surface of Mars, where there was once a huge lake. That is, the information about water has been found here. Scientists hope that if there was ever life on Mars, its signs will be found here in the form of fossils.
Will explore water and explore life
Percussion Mars Rover and the Engineer helicopter will make oxygen from carbon dioxide on Mars. In addition to life signs under the ground, it will also search for water and investigate them. Its Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer (MEDA) will study the weather and climate of Mars.
The photo is of Friday, when the rover had a successful landing on Mars. Then President Biden also saw this historic moment.
23 cameras in Perception Rover
Percision Rover has 23 cameras and two microphones installed to record the latest video and sound of Mars. Ingenuity is also the first helicopter to reach another planet with a rover. Parachutes and retrorackets are fitted for this. Smooth landing was possible only through this. Now the rover will explore the Jaziro crater for two years.
NASA’s Mars mission is called Perseverance Mars Rover and the Engineer Helicopter. The Perceived Rover weighs 1000 kg. It will run with nuclear power. For the first time, plutonium is being used as a fuel in a rover. This rover will operate on Mars for 10 years. It has a 7-foot robotic arm, 23 cameras and a drill machine. At the same time, the weight of the helicopter is 2 kg.

Fourth generation fifth rover on mission
Even before this, four of NASA’s rovers have landed on the surface of Mars. Perceivedance is NASA’s fourth generation rover. Sozoner was earlier sent in 1997 for the Pathfinder campaign. It was then sent to Spirit and Opportunity in 2004. In 2012, Curiosity camped on Mars.
