NASA successfully landed Perseverance on Mars on Thursday. Its safe landing on a vast crater on Mars’ surface is no less than a big feat for the pandemic stricken US that is also battling economic slowdown for the same reason.

What is Perseverance?

It is a self-guided science rover with the most advanced astrobiology laboratory on the mission Mars to collect signs of life on the Red Planet. It travelled for seven months to cover a distance of 293 million miles to reach its destination. It entered the Mars’ atmosphere at a speed of 12,000 miles per hour and landed safely on Jezero Crater that is a long-vanished Martian lake bed.

Perseverance will collect possible fossilized signs of microbes that were believed to live on Mars some 3 billion years ago.

Perseverance will extract the samples embedded on Mars surface for future analysis by scientists on earth.
