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


15mn visningar2 232

    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.

      1 Corinthians 15:1-4 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

      Why are the red lines on the parachute word coded

      1. Jake McKee

        They spell out a message that’s one of JPL’s catch phrases. I forgot what it was though, so you’ll have to search it up

      They should donate their money to poor people instead!!😇

        If they did that then everyone who works there would become one of those "poor people" when they lose their jobs.

      At 0:24, pause. Is that the Sun in the bottom right corner of screen? Why does the Sun look so big when Mars is so much further away from the Sun than Earth?

      1. Joshua Creasey

        That's the glare that makes it seem big

      2. samurai dog

        @Michael David ok flerfer

      3. Michael David

        @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.

      4. Mark Brummett

        "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.

    26. thesun collective147

      Wow that was amazing...From the radio to this...Very exciting


      Dozens of times I watch this video and I never hope for it

      I listened to the entire entry and landing while on a long roadtrip. I was cheering in my car. What an incredible thing that we could ALL be a part of this accomplishment. Well done NASA!!!!

    39. Patrick

      How did you at NASA get a drone to fly on MARS that has no atmosphere, and no oxygen?

      1. SpoonFullOfSalt

        @Patrick mars has a very thin atmosphere, it is believed to have once been the same as earth’s. What mars lacks though, is a magnetic field protecting it from radiation. Over millions of years mars’ atmosphere was picked away by solar winds. but yea mars has an atmosphere

      2. Cyclo the great

        Mars has an atmosphere, it is full of Carbon Dioxide

      3. E. Rose

        @Patrick None of your previous comments explain why you think Mars has no atmosphere. Maybe you don't understand the question but I tried to ask it in as simple terms as I could.

      4. Patrick

        @E. Rose you dont understand what read my previous comments means? Wow. You're such an automaton.

      5. E. Rose

        @Patrick I have no idea WTF that's supposed to mean. You can't just give a straight answer of why you think Mars has no atmosphere?

      The rover should have brought a seed and planted it..

      1. SpoonFullOfSalt

        Mars’ surface temp is too cold, there is iron oxide and phosphates in the soil, making it toxic for plants. Mars also does not have an atmosphere thick enough to house a plant.

      2. Panzer0fTheLake

        It'd die, since mars's surface temperature is way too cold for earth life

    48. Tommie Smith

      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"....... Arnold Toynbee 1971

    49. MVP ZAMASU

      Did we not go to the moon few years ago? And already we are at Mars......

      1. SpoonFullOfSalt

        we went to the moon in the 60s and 70s. We are going back in 2024. :)

        since american scientists are smart, they realize that the metric system is just up and better

        Contrary to what most people think the US does use the metric system quite a bit, particularly in fields of science.
