NASA releases panorama taken by Mars rover

NASA releases panorama taken by Mars rover




The US space agency NASA เล่นสล็อต ด้วยเทคนิคทำเงินแสน! released a spectacular panoramic view on Wednesday (Feb 24)
of the landing site of the Perseverance rover on Mars.


The panorama shows the rim of the Jezero Crater where the rover touched down last week and the cliff face of an ancient
river delta in the distance.


It was taken by rotating the rover's mast 360 degrees. The mast is equipped with dual, zoomable cameras which can take
high-definition video and images.


The panorama is composed of 142 individual images stitched together on Earth, NASA said.


"We're nestled right in a sweet spot, where you can see different features similar in many ways to features found by Spirit,
Opportunity, and Curiosity at their landing sites," said Jim Bell of Arizona State University's School of Earth and Space


Spirit, Opportunity and Curiosity were previous missions to Mars.


NASA said the rover's cameras will help scientists assess the geologic history and atmospheric conditions of Jezero Crater
and identify rocks and sediment worthy of a closer examination and collection for eventual return to Earth.
