Secrets of the Red Planet: Perseverance Rover Takes Its First HD Panorama of Mars

The pictures from the floor of Mars captured a large crater that might have hosted an historical river delta greater than 3.5 billion years in the past.

Perseverance rover, which is exploring Mars, has despatched again the first HD panorama of the Red Planet, creating an enchanting 360-degree look from the Martian floor. The high-definition image was created with its rotating Mastcam-Z, as the rover mixed 142 pictures. According to NASA, the “cliff face of an ancient river delta” could be seen on the image.

​Perseverance efficiently landed on Mars on 18 February, turning into the fifth Mars rover launched by NASA. Its most important goal is to seek for traces of microbial life that might have existed on the planet thousands and thousands of years in the past.
