The robotic vehicle Perseverance, which landed this Thursday in the Jezero crater of Mars, took “the first color photograph” of the surface of the red planet disclosed this Friday by the US space agency NASA. The high-resolution image was taken just before the dangerous landing of Perseverance a robot that will spend at least two years in Jezero crater, examining the planet’s geology, collecting samples, and looking for signs of ancient life. The photograph shows the surface of the red planet with very soft yellow tones in which the shadow of a part of the rover and the horizon can be seen.

This shot of a camera on my jetpack captures me in the air, just before my wheels landed says Perseverance on his Twitter account. The moment my team dreamed of for years is now a reality, he adds. It is the same image released on Thursday in black and white, but now in its color version.NASA also showed at a press conference another image, with yellow tones, of the Martian soil, where the terrain is appreciated and especially some rocks with many holes that are not common according to scientists.

It is the same image released on Thursday in black and white, but now in its color version.NASA also showed at a press conference another image, with yellow tones, of the Martian soil, where the terrain is appreciated and especially some rocks with many holes that are not common, according to scientists. The Perseverance, which is still standing where it landed on Thursday, with its rear-facing what is supposed to be the delta of a river, will have the task of gradually testing its instruments over the next few days. For now, scientists analyze the first images of the delta that they hope are rich in sediment and possibly volcanic rocks.

The Jezero crater was chosen by NASA because it is believed that it was a lake into which a river flowed and therefore may be rich in fossil microorganisms.NASA further noted that Perseverance’s two microphones have not yet recorded the sounds of Mars, but that they will soon.
