Mangalyaan set out on the Red Planet in search of life’Perseverance’: Atlas V-541 rocket landed on Mars. Meanwhile, the day of NASA’s Mars mission was fixed on July 27. For various reasons, it was later postponed to July 30. Jamal Perseverance Rover flew to Mars from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida on the Atlas V-541 rocket at 7:50 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, 5:20 p.m. Indian time.
It will take a year to set foot on Mars. Meanwhile, the rover Curiosity sent by NASA in 2012 has given a lot of ideas to satisfy the curiosity about the red planet. Searching the hole in Mars, he has revealed some promising information. In the next step, NASA is sending the rover – ‘Perseverance’ to Mars to know the details of the equatorial region of Mars. It is said that it will take him a year to land on Mars.
What are the qualities of this sophisticated NASA spacecraft? Meanwhile sophisticated rover:
NASA held a small program on ‘Perseverance’ on the 7th of this month. It can be seen that there will be seven special scientific instruments on it. There will be 23 cameras and two microphones. There will also be a drone camera separately on the perimeter associated with the moving rocket. It is known that the unknown information of the red planet will come to the hands of NASA researchers through the pictures taken by this camera.

Perseverance sources will search for life in the equatorial region, at least 17 times heavier than curiosity. It is said that it will take 50 to 60 minutes for the rover to separate from the rocket when it reaches the destination. This will be followed by a tour of the equatorial region of Mars in search of history. Researchers say that the main goal of perseverance is to investigate whether life existed on Mars in the past.
