Posted at 11:45 AM, Feb 25, 2021

Perseverance is sending HD photos back from Mars.

The rover has transmitted the 142 images it took of where it landed a week ago using a pair of zoomable color cameras.

NASA put some of those photos together to create a 360-degree panorama.

This exact location is called Jezero Crater, which is an almost 4B year old dry lake bed.

The rover will spend 2 years roaming the crater searching for signs of ancient life.
