After landing on Mars, Percussion Mars Rover clicked this image and sent it to Earth. NASA’s team will now start research on this.
The US Space Agency NASA’s Perseverance Rover landed on Mars on Thursday to look for 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. US President Joe Biden also saw this landing in his office.

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.
Touchdown zone was on Jaziro crater
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 once there was 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.

23 cameras in Perception Rover
Percision Rover has 23 cameras and two microphones installed to record the latest video and sound of Mars. The first helicopter to reach another planet with the rover is also Ingenuity. 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.

Tribute sent to Healthworkers with Rover
The names of 11 million people have also been written on three silicon chips with this rover. There is also a Tribute for Healthworkers around the world. A small aluminum plate has the shape of a snake wrapped on a rod that represents the Global Medical Society. It shows a line from Central Florida to Mars. The mission was launched from the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida.
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.
Functional testing of the Ingenuity copter was done at the Kennedy Space Center in April 2020. During this time, it has been specially focused on the fact that the landing on the dangerous and uneven surface of the Mars does not cause any damage and the weight on all four wheels remains the same.
