A month and a half after sending its first-ever photo of Mars, NASA’s Perseverance rover has just sent in its very first selfie. It shows the rover in the Jezero crater, but there’s also his little buddy Ingenuity helicopter posing for a snap.
Ever since it was launched to Mars, and especially since it landed, all eyes have been on the NASA Perseverance rover. The hype has been so great that we almost forgot about of its “big brother,” Curiosity. But it has reminded us of his presence on Mars with the latest photo it took, and it almost looks like a tourist selfie in front of a landmark.
Considering the current events, no place in the world seems safe to me. I’ve been fantasizing about immigrating to another planet, and this video from ElderFox Documentaries makes it possible. Well, at least virtually. It takes you across the surface of Mars, and it’s the first time that footage from the red planet has been rendered in 4K. It’s not only impressive and calming to watch, but you’ll learn some interesting information about Mars and NASA’s rovers.
