Perseverance Rover’s Descent and Touchdown on Mars (Official NASA Video)


NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance mission captured thrilling footage of its rover landing in Mars’ Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021. The real footage in this video was captured by several cameras that are part of the rover’s entry, descent, and landing suite. The views include a camera looking down from the spacecraft’s descent stage (a kind of rocket-powered jet pack that helps fly the rover to its landing site), a camera on the rover looking up at the descent stage, a camera on the top of the aeroshell (a capsule protecting the rover) looking up at that parachute, and a camera on the bottom of the rover looking down at the Martian surface.

The audio embedded in the video comes from the mission control call-outs during entry, descent, and landing.

  1. Who are these 2000 people who put negative to the video ?! 🙂 these are Russians and Iranians or someone else who has real problems in science 🙂

  2. I saw Man walking on the Moon as a Kid and now I see a RC Toy on Mars as a Man! What a time to be alive! I just wish sincerely that NASA would get more funding aka Money! NASA Rules!
