NASA has released a video of the Perseverance rover’s landing on Mars last week.
Perseverance sailed through space for nearly seven months, travelling 472 million km, before safely landing on the Red Planet on Thursday.
The rover will spend two years searching for signs of ancient microbial life, and collecting Martian rocks to bring back to earth for study – the first time humans will have collected specimens from another planet.
This is part of NASA’s Moon to Mars exploration mission, which will help prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet.
