Mars Perseverance Sol 3

Explanation: Stitched together on planet Earth, 142 separate images make up this 360 degree panorama from the floor of Jezero Crater on Mars. The high-resolution color images were taken by the Perseverance rover’s zoomable Mastcam-Z during mission sol 3, also known as February 21, 2021. In the foreground of Mastcam-Z’s view is the car-sized rover’s deck. Broad light-colored patches in the martian soil just beyond it were scoured by descent stage rocket engines during the rover’s dramatic arrival on February 18. The rim of 45 kilometer-wide Jezero Crater rises in the distance. In the coming sols, Perseverance will explore the ancient lake-delta system in the crater, hunting for signs of past microscopic life and collecting samples for potential future return to planet Earth.

说明: 摄于火星耶杰罗坑底的142张照片,在地球上拼接成这幅360度的全景图。这些高解析彩色照片,是由毅力号火星车的可缩放桅杆相机Z,摄于抵达火星后的第4个火星日(2021年2月21日)。而在这片桅杆相机视野里,前景即为这部火星车的甲板。火星车前方的片淡色表面,则是这部火星车18日抵达火星那天,被着陆火箭引擎吹走表面土壤的区域。远方地平线的突起,为45公里宽的耶杰罗坑之坑墙。在接下来的期间,毅力号将探索这个撞击坑内古老的湖底冲积扇,寻找过去是否有微生物存在的迹证,以及收集样本,为将来或许会规划的样品返回任务预作准备。
