Finally, the descent and touchdown video of the Perseverance Rover fully relayed to Earth, and NASA has published it. Watch the descent and touchdown of a Mars rover, for the first time as a full video!
At the end of the video, you can see the separation of the skycrane which power-landed Perseverance on the Martian surface. Amazing!
Previous Mars rover Curiosity‘s descent was recorded as stop-motion – NASA has used 297 images taken during the descent to create a simulation.
