NASA's Perseverance rover landed on Mars on February 18, 2021. It survived its most challenging part of the mission: the entry, descent, and landing, also known as the seven minutes of terror. Moments after landing, Perseverence sent back its first images of the Red Planet. The rover will now begin its experiments. Here are some of the mind-blowing things it will do on Mars. Make Oxygen: The rover has been equipped with an instrument called MOXIE. This fancy abbreviation stands for Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment. MOXIE will collect atmospheric carbon dioxide and convert it into oxygen and carbon monoxide. It's a technological demonstration that will help future astronauts on Mars. Study Weather Patterns: Violent dust storms rage on Mars from to time. We have already lost a rover named Opportunity because of a dust storm. Perseverance has a suite of electronic sensors onboard called MEDA ( Mars Environmental Dynamics Analyzer). It will study the Martian weather that will further help us in crewed missions to Mars. Search For Ancient Life: Perseverance has landed in the Jezero crater, a wide basin that was once flooded with water, according to scientists. If life existed on Mars, Perseverance has all the tools to search for it. Deploy Ingenuity: Finally, Perseverance will deploy the Mars Helicopter Ingenuity. This will be the first powered flight on another planet.
