It’s been around two weeks now since NASA’s Perseverance rover sent its first image from Mars. As time goes by, NASA’s gallery is being filled with more and more photos of the Red Planet, giving us an insight into the look of its surface. If you’d like to roam the Jezero crater with Perseverance, take a look at some of the latest images that it sent back to Earth.

“A key objective for Perseverance’s mission on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life,” NASA writes. “The rover will characterize the planet’s geology and past climate, pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith (broken rock and dust).”

If you’d like to dive even deeper into the moments of landing, check out the landing video, you won’t be disappointed. You can also virtually join Mission Control with this 360-degree video.

    Not exactly DIY, is it?

      One could argue that the Perseverance rover itself was a DIY build. I mean, it’s not exactly off-the-shelf, is it? Let’s see your DIY projects. :)

        I’m just guessing, but I think people come to this blog to read about photography ideas they could conceivably do themselves.

          Yes, and most of the DIY projects we feature are made by our readers, like you, and sent to us to check out. I’m still waiting to see your contribution to the world. :)

            I sent in one of my photo projects a few years ago, but you guys chose not to write it up. That’s OK … it was very niche.

            I do a lot of DIY stuff, but very little of it is photography-related.

      not exactly a productive comment, is it?

        If it reminds the writers that people come here for DIY photography articles, it will be productive.

          I literally just posted one about an hour ago. Perhaps you couldn’t see it through the tears. :)

            I made my original post 4 hours ago. You posted a fine article an hour ago. But I couldn’t see it through the veil of time.

            Your most recent comment to which I was responding was posted after that article went live. :)
