NASA: Three to five millimeters of detail can be identified
According to NASA, the resolution is so high that only three to five millimeters of detail can be seen near the rover. In the distance, two to three meters of detail can be clearly seen. The picture, among other things, shows the horizon surrounding the Scree, the mountains and the “Jesero gorge” – a dry lake about 45 kilometers in diameter. “Perseverance” (German: tolerance) should interrogate him for the next two years.
NASA had previously released a record. It shows: Amazing video images from the “diligence” landing and the first sound recordings from the planet’s surface.

After about six months of flight time and 472 million flight kilometers, the 1,000kg NASA rover landed on Mars last week. Will search for traces of previous microbial life and research the climate and geography of the Red Planet. In addition, “diligence” will collect rock and soil samples and place them in canaries. Samples are to be collected and brought back to Earth over the next ten years through a joint venture between NASA and the European space agency ISA.
