Images of persevering Mars show the rover in action

new photos from NASA The persevering rover is shown on Mars working hard while researching red planet On signs of ancient microbial life.

Since “Percy” I landed in Jezero crater on Mars in FebruaryThe agency said that the rocks there began to reveal a picture of its history billions of years ago.

“Imaging cameras are a huge piece of everything,” Vivian Sun, co-chair of the Perseverance First Science Campaign at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Southern California, said in a statement. “We use a lot of it every day for science. It is a very important task.”

NASA has shared an image from Perseverance’s navigation cameras on the rover’s longest autonomous engine to date, a color panorama enhanced from the Mastcam-Z camera system, a shot of the “Delta Scarp” crater taken by Perseverance’s Remote Microscopic Imager (RMI) and a close-up of a rocky target named “Foux” captured using the WATSON (Wide-Angle Topographical Sensor for Electronic Processes and Engineering) camera.

After receiving Mastcam-Z images of the Scarp and SuperCam RMI to provide a more detailed view of the wagon, SuperCam principal investigator Roger Wiens said the images showed that there were a large number flash flood An event, a rock wash in a delta formation.

The Perseverance Mars rover used the Mastcam-Z camera system to create this color-enhanced panorama, which the scientists used to search for rock sampling sites. The panorama is pieced together from 70 individual images taken on July 28, 2021, the 55th Sol day or Sol day of the mission.

“These large rocks are about halfway down the delta formation,” said Wiens, of Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico. “If the bottom of the lake is full, you will find it at the very top of the summit. So the lake was not full at the time of the floods. In general, this may indicate instability climate. We may not have always had this very quiet, quiet, habitable place that we would perhaps enjoy raising some microorganisms.”

Scientists working on perseverance have also found signs of igneous rocks that formed from lava or magma on the crater floor – Once upon a time a lake site During the same time frame, the hint of lava flowing is not just flowing water.

These discoveries have drawn researchers, both in their greater scope astrobiology The mission and their mission to collect samples of Martian rocks and regolith.

Watson, at the end of Percy’s robotic arm, provided the team with very close shots of their targets, helped engineers locate the probe’s drill bits to extract core rock samples and produce images of where the sample was taken. Selfies were also taken.

Perseverance captured this close-up of a rocky target called “Foux” using the WATSON camera on July 11, 2021, Mars day 139, or the mission’s Sol. The camera size is approximately 1.4 x 1 inch (3.5 cm x 2.6 cm).

In coordination with the SHERLOC (Survey of Habitable Environments Using Raman & Luminescence for Organic Materials and Chemicals) and PIXL (Planetary Instrument for X-ray Lithochemistry) instruments from Perseverance, WATSON helped find signs of those igneous rocks on the crater floor.

“We get really cool spectra of substances formed in water [watery] environments – eg sulfates and carbonates,” Luther Beegle, SHERLOC principal investigator at JPL, said in the release.

“Once we get close to the delta, where there should be a really good possibility of sustaining life, we have a really good chance of seeing something if there is,” he added.
