Watch and listen to Perseverance’s first moments on Mars

Driving the news: The cameras tasked with capturing the landing sent back about 30 gigabytes of footage from Perseverance’s landing to waiting scientists on Earth.

  • “This video of Perseverance’s descent is the closest you can get to landing on Mars without putting on a pressure suit,” Thomas Zurbuchen, NASA associate administrator for science, said in a statement.
  • Perseverance also recorded the first sounds from Mars not long after making it to the surface. 

What’s next: NASA is planning to continue uploading photos and turning the rover’s microphones on as it gets to work on Mars.
