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

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
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.

Without a doubt the most incredible footage ever taken of anything imo. Out of the 100 billion plus humans that have ever lived, we are alive for this monumental moment. It’s absolutely surreal and an honor to witness it

This is incredible to watch. This has to be the first time I've ever seen hd video from mars. I can't wait to share this with my kids Emma and Ava. To me they are the ones out of this world.

IMO This is a "technicolor" moment of the Space Age, or like how it feels when we remaster early 20th century clips. Those Martian dust moved beautifully!

The most insane part for me is that someone came up with the idea of having a Jetpack slowly decenting the rover on ropes and then let it fly away.. Like what?

Great job to everyone involved, shame about the audio. We'll just have to substitute Rick Astley again.
