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

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.

    • The bridles and electrical umbilical were cut by blades driven by a pyrotechnic charges. The rover commanded the pyros once it detected it was on the surface.

    • Not at all. it has to do it all by itself.

      AtlasAtlasVor 5 Stunden
    • No. At the time of EDL the one way light travel time was 11 minutes and 22 seconds. The delay makes any real-time control impossible. The landing was completely autonomous, controlled by the rover computer. Mission Controllers had basic telemetry from the rover to monitor the EDL, but there was nothing they could do to affect the outcome.

    easy cheeseeasy cheeseVor 10 Stunden
    • @Atlas - You are correct. Once the rover detects wheels down, it commands the bridles and the umbilical to be cut. That severs the camera feed from the sky crane.

      Steve AdamsSteve AdamsVor 5 Stunden
    • my guess is that the sky crane passes the video to the rover by cable. Once you cut the cable, you cut the video feed. That's my guess tho, could be something else entirely

    • @Knight Watchman The sky isn't blue because of the oceans. It is blue because of Raleigh scattering, which happens in any gas. Though lowers parts of Mars' atmosphere are rich in red dust which darkens and reddens the naturally blue sky.
