Descriptions

On March 14, 2021 NASA’s Perseverance Rover dropped Belly Pan component (Mars Sample Cover) on Mars’ surface and drove away to find safe place to deploy Helicopter Ingenuity. This component needed to safe Mars Samples System while and after landing. As for now, the vehicle is fine and does not need Belly Pan anymore. So it was dropped. Panorama image was reconstructed and colorized by myself to analyze what happened with the rover. The belly of the rover houses all the equipment and supplies needed to collect samples. It contains a rotating drill carousel, which is a wheel that contains different kinds of drill bits. Next to that are the 43 sample tubes waiting to be filled. While the rover’s big arm reaches out and drills rock, the rover belly is home to a small robotic arm that works as a "lab assistant" to the big arm. The small arm picks up and moves new sample tubes to the drill, and transfers filled sample containers into a space where they are sealed and stored.
