Mars Perseverance Rover Landing Video, Audio From Red Planet Released by NASA: 'Stuff of Our Dreams'

Tuesday, 23 February 2021

NASA on Monday released the first high-quality video of a spacecraft landing on Mars, a three-minute trailer showing the enormous orange and white parachute hurtling open and the red dust kicking up as rocket engines lowered the rover to the surface.

 

 

 

 

 

The US space agency also released an audio clip from the Red Planet. You can hear a faint sound of crackling wind recorded by the probe. 


The footage was so good — and the images so breathtaking — that members of the rover team said they felt like they were riding along.

 

 

 

“It gives me goose bumps every time I see it, just amazing,” said Dave Gruel, head of the entry and descent camera team.

The Perseverance rover landed last Thursday near an ancient river delta in Jezero Crater to search for signs of ancient microscopic life. After spending the weekend binge-watching the descent and landing video, the team at Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, shared the video at a news conference.

“These videos and these images are the stuff of our dreams," said Al Chen, who was in charge of the landing team.
