NASA’s Perseverance rover landed on Mars and sent the first images from the planet.
NASA’s Perseverance rover, which has successfully landed on Mars by traveling more than 470 million kilometers, has come to the end of its approximately 7-month journey.
The moment of landing on Mars, which was watched publicly on live broadcast, attracted the attention of the whole world.
The main task of the device, which was launched from Earth on July 30, is to search for traces of bacterial life on the planet.
NASA gave everyone the opportunity to “take pictures on Mars”
In honor of this successful mission, NASA has prepared a little surprise: now anyone can take pictures against the background of Mars.
“Welcome to Mars! We can’t get you to Mars (yet!), But we can take you to the Red Planet. Take control of the flight or go to Mars with a rover,” NASA developers said.
