After a stressful 7 minutes during the entry phase of waiting for feedback from the Rover via MRO orbiter it has been confirmed that the Rover has landed successfully on the surface of Mars.
Congratulations to the NASA/JPL team for successfully landing another Rover on Mars!
Below a happy JPL team from the control room gets feedback that the Rover has successfully landed.
Below is the first image NASA’s Perseverance rover sent back after touching down on Mars on Feb. 18, 2021. The view, from one of Perseverance’s Hazard Cameras, is partially obscured by a dust cover.
