Perseverance, NASA’s most sophisticated rover to date, has landed on the surface of Mars.

The rover sent back its first images of the landing site immediately after landing on February 18.

It was launched from Florida at the end of July and traveled 292.5 million miles.

This is NASA’s first mission that will search for signs of ancient life on Mars. Perseverance will also study Mars’ climate and geology and collect samples that will eventually be returned to Earth by the 2030s.

From its landing site, the rover could see a remnant of a fan-shaped deposit of sediments known as a delta (the raised area of dark brown rock in the middle ground). (JPL-Caltech/NASA)

President Joe Biden watches coverage of the rover landing from the White House. “Congratulations to NASA and everyone whose hard work made Perseverance’s historic landing possible,” he said in a tweet. “Today proved once again that with the power of science and American ingenuity, nothing is beyond the realm of possibility.” (The White House)
