Sol 86 video
Perseverance rolls its wheels to reveal more terrain. On Sol 86, it has moved once again and increased total distance travelled since landing to 0.21 miles / 0.34 km. At 0.01 miles per hour (0.016 kilometers per hour) the rover carefully treks the dried lakebed of Jezero crater. In the dusty and rocky terrain, progressing to a new spot, is not easy and time consuming. Each of the target routes are carefully studied and validated before it becomes and instruction for the rover. It’s not much for a mileage. But, each spot of each course is a milestone.
As new spot is revealed, so thus, interesting formations and science targets appear. For this batch of raw images, get to see the new scenes on Jezero crater. Familiarize the terrain and the science targets Perseverance rover have to pause for a closer look. Enjoy the compiled images in above video and of course the raw still frames below.
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
