NASA Rover "Perseverance" Lands On Mars After 7 Months by NewDelhi(m): 10:10pm On Feb 18
The cruise stage of Perseverance's journey has ended, and it has arrived at the Red Planet. Perseverance has just started what NASA refers to as the "seven minutes of terror." This is when the rover essentially has to land itself on Mars with no help from NASA, due to a one-way 11 minute time-delay.

The ground teams tell the spacecraft when to begin EDL (entry, descent and landing) and the spacecraft takes over from there — and mission control begins an agonizing wait.

The spacecraft hits the top of the Martian atmosphere moving at 12,000 miles per hour and has to slow down to zero miles per hour seven minutes later when the rover softly lands on the surface.

The Perseverance rover just became NASA's fifth rover to safely land on the surface of Mars after surviving the "seven minutes of terror."

This is the most sophisticated rover the agency has ever sent to the Red Planet. It will gather data and look for signs of ancient life in a crater that once contained a lake about 3.9 billion years ago.

It takes 11 minutes for the rover to send data from Mars back to Earth. In real rover time now, Perseverance is on its own and beginning its entry. However, we won't receive that data for a few more minutes.

What you need to know

Perseverance, NASA's most sophisticated rover to date, just landed on Mars.

This is NASA's first mission that will search for signs of ancient life on another planet. It launched from Florida at the end of July.

NASA only lands a rover on Mars about every 10 years. The last was Curiosity in 2012.

Watching their jubilations on CNN made me wonder how backward this nation is...



We are still struggling to provide electricity while they can already send a robot to go examine a different planet and observe it's parole here on earth... Without any visual



Nna eh, I go ask questions when I die

If we blacks are humans then Caucasians are aliens.. we are not the same. All that we are today — and all that we ever hope to be — we owe to the white man... Even the Gods we serve is not our creation

Texas lost power for few days and it was already like hell to them.. Let me not even bring Nigeria into this conversation..
No wonder my neighbor from USA can't do without putting on the generator 247.
He said bro, I will loose my sanity

These people keep achieving great feats and here, we still negotiate with bandits and compensate terrorists..
It is well

Lol... But someone on this site said it's impossible for a space ship to leave the Earth due to some magnetic fiery force fields encircling the Earth's dome??

However, does going to Mars stop humans from dying?

Awesome. This will help a lot on research and potential life forms on Mars.

A trip to Mars currently take about 8 months at crazy speeds, twists and turns. No human can survive that. The Endurance rover that just got to Mars was launched in July last year.

We are still working on safer, faster means to getting people to Mars.

Also, we need to be sure about the availability of enough oxygen, proper gravity and the right atmospheric condition on Mars. We also need a safe way to transport any human on Mars back to earth.
