Since landing on Mars on the 18th of February 2021, NASA’s Perseverance rover has captured over 70,000 images. Currently, it has only travelled about 0.21 miles, which is 0.34 kilometres, and it has already revealed the Jezero crater, the place that it is exploring, in incredible detail.
So, allow your eyes to scan across these latest images while remembering, that billions of years ago this now desolate crater, was once filled with flowing water. A wet landscape, that was possibly primed for Martian life, before drying up and becoming a sandy reminder of how fragile a planet can be.
