Nasa’s Mars Landing

February 18, 2021, the day NASA made the history of the landing on Mars. Perseverance was launched up to orbit the universe and set up on July 30, 2021, from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Perseverance’s expected time on Mars is about two years. Perseverance would also put new robotics technologies to the test. As well as human flights to Mars to see if it’s safe. That covers Terrain Relative Autopilot, is an autopilot for avoiding hazards.  During the flight, navigation and a series of sensors are used to collect data.  The entry, descent, and landing will take seven minutes. They call that the seven minutes of terror. This landing accuracy has suffered in previous missions due to unpredictable weather events, especially dust storms, affecting Perseverance’s landing. Perseverance is planning on sampling rock and testing if you can fly on the planet. The rover has scheduled to take pieces of rock and leave it there for later missions to Mars so they can take back more. It is unlikely that all of the samples will be returned to Earth before 2031. Perseverance, which launched in July 2020, cost $2.4 billion to construct and launch, with an additional $300 million to land and operate on Mars during its first year.
