The Perseverance Rover team has come up with the first color images of Mars in the Xero gorge. At a broader view, a flat terrain is appreciated, dominated by a sandy surface, from which some small rocks and stones emerge. In the background you can see a height above the ground.
At an informed meeting about the rover’s position after the first hours on Mars, an image was released, taken with a camera installed in the ‘jet bag’ – a structure with retro rockets, from which nylon was built with diligent cables. Color Photo Before its wheels hit the ground, the rover still catches in the air.
Another image includes a view of one of the rover’s wheels, seated on a sandy surface with rocks and loose stones around it. It is interesting to know whether they have a volcanic or sedimentary origin.
The diligence with which its systems are in good condition after being tested on arrival at the Red Planet will look for signs of ancient microbial life, collect carefully selected rock and regolith (broken rock and dust) samples for future returns to Earth, classify geography and pave the way for Mars’ climate and human exploration. .
Scientists believe their target is an ancient river flowing into a lake called the fan-shaped sediment delta. Scientists believe the environment here may have preserved the signs of any life captured billions of years ago.
