Bengali Hunt Desk: NASA’s Perseverance rover has successfully landed on Mars. This rover was launched from Earth about 6 months ago. Dr. Swati Mohan, a scientist of Indian descent, is credited with the success of NASA. According to NASA, the rover landed on Jezero Crater, the most dangerous area on Mars, on Thursday-Friday night. Water was once found in this area.
NASA claims that this is the first time in history that a rover has landed so accurately on Mars. The US space agency released the first image shortly after the rover landed on the red planet. This six-wheeled rover will collect data on the red planet and return to Earth after collecting soil samples. By examining that sample, it will be possible to know whether there was life-giving in NASA.
Perseverance NASA’s fourth generation rover. Sozonar was previously sent to Pathfinder in 1997. Then in 2004 Spirit and Opportunity were sent. Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012. According to NASA, the Perseverance Rover weighs 1,000 kg and runs on nuclear energy. Plutonium has been used as fuel in a rover for the first time.
The Perseverance Rover will operate on Mars for up to 10 years. This rover has a 6 foot robotic arm. There are 23 cameras and a drill machine. Let me tell you, the process of landing on the red planet of Perseverance Rover was very difficult. The rover entered the Martian atmosphere at a speed of 12,000 miles per hour. At that time, if the temperature increased due to friction, there was a risk of extensive damage to the rover. But despite so many problems, the rover successfully landed on Mars.
