NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover has returned its first high-definition panorama using its rotating head amm-Z tool, giving it a 360-degree view of the planet’s surface.
NASA left a hidden message at the climax of the Mars Rover
The picture is Rover’s second panorama since it landed on the planet Perseverance on February 18. The rover’s navigation camera – also on the mast – captured another panorama on February 20th.
The newly-published image, captured on February 21, was created from a combination of 142 images. Thousands have already joined the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Southern California.
In it, the Jezero crater rim and what NASA has described as the “cliff face of the ancient river delta” can be seen in the distance.
Researchers believe that water and houses were once inundated in an ancient river delta billions of years ago.
A large part of the mission of Persians is an attempt to find and discover evidence of ancient microbial life. It will also collect Martin rock and silt samples and return to Earth later.
Skull am M-Z and supra am mano will be used to provide imaging and analysis of both surface mineralogy and chemical composition. It will help the mission team identify rocks and silt that can be tested.
The Skull am M-Z is a dual camera system equipped with high-definition video, zoom function and the ability to take panoramic color and 3D images.
According to a NASA release, the camera can reveal details as small as 0.1 to 0.2 inches closer to me and at a distance of 6.5 feet to 10 feet.
According to JPL, working in partnership with Malin Space Science Systems of San Diego, Arizona State University of Tempe Arizona leads the operation of the Mast Stock Am M-Z Instrument.
Perseverance’s Maststock-M-Z is designed in the same way as its predecessor Curiosity, which touched down in the Mars Gail Crater in 2012. However, Curiosity’s imaging tech is less advanced.

“We’re sitting right at a sweet spot, where you can see the many different features of the spirit, opportunities and curiosity seen on their landing sites,” said Just Bell, a leader at Mastakam M-Z Instruments. Team, said.
In a panel on Thursday, Bell said he and his team were “thrown out of the water” by images coming back from Mastak-M-Z and that only improvements in techniques will continue in the mission to Mars.
