Washington: Nasa’s Mars rover, Perseverance, landed on the Jezero crater on the Red Planet on Friday in a risky mission aimed at finding whether there were life forms that ever existed on the planet. Several scientists of the National Aeronautics and Space administration were exuberant about Perseverance’s safe landing at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California after operations lead Swati Mohan confirmed the landing of the rover in the Jezero crater.

‘Touchdown confirmed,’ Perseverance’s official Twitter handle said in its tweet confirming the safe landing. Following its landing, the rover sent its first rocky images from Mars.

My first look at my forever home,’ Nasa’s Perseverance Mars Rover tweeted.

‘The Mars 2020 Perseverance mission embodies our nation’s spirit of persevering even in the most challenging of situations, inspiring, and advancing science and exploration. The mission itself personifies the human ideal of persevering towards the future and will help us prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet,” Jurczyk added.

The Perseverance rover, which is a robotic geologist and astrobiologist, will undergo several weeks of testing before it begins its two-year mission of Mars’ Jezero Crater, the statement further added. Perseverance is scheduled to carry tests and investigate the rock and sediment of Jezero’s ancient lakebed and Jezero’s river delta to analyse the geology of the region and determine the past climate. The other primary objective of Perseverance is also to find signs of ancient microbial life in Earth’s closest neighbour.
