NASA Releases First Video/Audio From Mars
NASA's Perseverance rover's video and separate audio give mankind a glimpse into how it would feel to actually land on Mars.
NASA has released the first-ever Martian video and audio from the big Red Planet. Mars 2020 Perseverance rover's descent and touchdown on Mars is captured in a thrilling high-definition video. A separate microphone captured the first audio as well.
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.-NASA/JPL-Caltech
About 10 seconds into the 60 seconds of audio, a Martian breeze is audible.
The amazing panorama and the first rocked landscape shot of the Jezero crater seen with human eyes and the first Martian sounds are the closest you can get to landing on Mars without putting on a pressure suit.-NASA associated administrator, Dr. Thomas Zurbuchen, in an interview with the Guardian
