Now that the team and I have achieved a series of “firsts” since my landing on the Red Planet, join a discussion on Friday, March 5, at 12:30 pm PT (3:30 pm ET/2030 UTC) focused on those big moments and get a look at what comes next as I start roving. https://t.co/XHWGLYRGw4https://t.co/O2gXzclXxb
This week I’ve been doing lots of health checkouts, getting ready to get to work. I’ve checked many tasks off my list, including instrument tests, imaging, and getting my arm moving. Warming up for a marathon of science. https://t.co/A0aqhWVo5T
NASA Perseverance on the Ground in Color
Perseverance can be seen in this enhanced HiRISE color image at its landing site, six days after touchdown, doing system checks. The site appears to be covered in loose dark material with brighter material underneath.
Take a close look at my new home. Members of my team are giving you a tour around the high-def 360-degree panorama I sent back. They're zooming in on the details of the Martian terrain I'm in and are answering your questions live. #CountdownToMarshttps://t.co/9tpv4Vl4lV
