NASA releases 1st video of Perseverance rover landing on Mars

NASA released a 3-minute video of the historic landing of its Perseverance rover as it descended onto the surface of Mars. The 6-wheeled rover touched down on the Red Planet last Thursday after seven months in space.

Officials played the video for the first time for the public during a Monday press conference.

Over the next two years, the car-sized rover will collect the first rock samples that will be sent back to Earth and examined for signs of past life, a mission that marks a new era of space exploration on Mars.
