First Audio And First Video of A Spacecraft Landing on Mars

This video of the Perseverance Rover is crazy good, it's breaking all kinds of expectations.


The best landing that NASA could of hoped for is for everything to work as intended but that was a dream right.

They pushed back at insanity, they created a space highway and put the peddle to the metal, then to the floor!




The first video of a Mars landing, a sky crane lowered them while parachuting down to the surface!












That, if your wondering, is the insane part! Think about it, make a slowly descending platform from which you can lower "in effect, a car" from that platform using a crane! A crane, winch or come along. Either way it's being slowly set down on the surface of Mars.


The idea is absolutely out of this world, I cannot imagine how this idea was sold to NASA? But, damn it, it worked out fine. And what's more than that is the audio of Mars.

This quote is from NASA:


Acting NASA Administrator Steve Jurczyk said. “Perseverance is just getting started, and already has provided some of the most iconic visuals in space exploration history. It reinforces the remarkable level of engineering and precision that is required to build and fly a vehicle to the Red Planet.”



New video from NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover chronicles major milestones during the final minutes of its entry, descent, and landing (EDL) on the Red Planet on Feb. 18 as the spacecraft plummeted, parachuted, and rocketed toward the surface of Mars. A microphone on the rover also has provided the first audio recording of sounds from Mars.



Here's the NASA video from yesterday Monday 22nd February, 2021:

The astonishing and mind blowing video was filmed as the "one - ton Perseverance Rover" plummeted like a lead balloon towards the Jezero crater on February 18th, 2021. It absolutely stopped right there in terms of resemblance to a lead balloon because after falling for what must of seemed like an eternity, the parachute deployed and the sky crane got to working flawlessly.



I'm certainly of the opinion that NASA doesn't intend to stop there, it's kinda like what has happened before in terms of humans continuously repeating history. The only difference this time is that NASA filmed it, NASA recorded some audio and it's landed in a different place to it's predecessors.



Other than that, I believe we're making a remake of a classic.



Over the years, NASA has sent five robotic vehicles to Mars, called Rovers. The names of the five Rovers are:


Sojourner, Spirit and Opportunity, Curiosity, and Perseverance which is the Mars Rover this time around. Look, I'm all for Mars and the colonisation of it but at this rate of progress it would suggest that it's decades off.


The below quote is from NASA's 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.
