Sol 66 Images compilation
It’s a rough terrain on Jezero Crater Mars. The location was believed to be an ancient lake, as the name implies “Jezero”. Roaming in the bedrock of a previous lake, expect a hostile terrain for driving. Good thing Perseverance Rover is built for such driving environment. The will be put to the test for the various features of rocks on this location. As you can see in the raw images below, it did will in traversing those obstacles.
In this batch of images, get to see the magnified capture of the ground and observe the tracks as Perseverance Rover drove over those natural features and rocks on Jezero Crater. Imagine the planning behind every pivot of the wheel, direction to take and the decision to make of to avoid rocks or just drove over them. Perseverance Rover is not controlled real time. Instead, instructions were sent for it execute step by step. In the video above, the audio background is the one capture on Sol 16.A perfect ambient on top of the raw images that have been shared so far. Get’s the imagination of how it is roll over rocks and pivots of those wheel joints. Enjoy!
Pictures are worth thousand words. So, I’m just sharing all photos as captured by NASA Mars Perseverance Rover currently on the Red planet. Photo, crawled using NASA API. Really helpful delivered to my inbox. With additional steps, reflected the structured table into this post. Here’s how you can go back to the technical on how we crawl these raw images as Percy streams it to NASA lend us with the API
