    The first 360-de­gree panora­ma cap­tured by Mast­cam-Z on board the Mars rover Per­se­ver­ance shows the rim of Jeze­ro Crater. The panora­ma was as­sem­bled on Earth from 142 in­di­vid­u­al im­ages ac­quired on Sol 3, the third Mar­tian day of the mis­sion.

    In the first 360-de­gree panora­ma tak­en by Mast­cam-Z, this rock, sculped in­to a char­ac­ter­is­tic shape by wind-trans­port­ed sand, shows the lev­el of de­tail cap­tured by the cam­era sys­tem.

    Mast­cam-Z, a pair of zoomable cam­eras aboard NASA’s Per­se­ver­ance rover, im­aged its cal­i­bra­tion tar­get for the first time on Feb. 20, 2021, the sec­ond Mar­tian day, or sol, of Per­se­ver­ance’s mis­sion. Vis­i­ble in this nat­u­ral-col­or com­pos­ite are the Mast­cam-Z pri­ma­ry-col­or and grayscale cal­i­bra­tion tar­get (the col­or­ful cir­cu­lar ob­ject at right fore­ground) as well as the cam­era's sec­ondary cal­i­bra­tion tar­get (the small col­or­ful L-brack­et just be­low the pri­ma­ry tar­get). The Mast­cam-Z team us­es these tar­gets to cal­i­brate im­ages of the Mar­tian ter­rain to ad­just for changes in bright­ness and dust in the at­mo­sphere through­out the day.

    A sim­u­lat­ed flight over Jeze­ro Crater on Mars. Home to a stand­ing body of wa­ter more than 3.5 bil­lion years ago, this crater is where NASA’s Mars 2020 mis­sion Per­se­ver­ance rover will land to search for signs of past mi­cro­bial life. The video is based on da­ta from the High Res­o­lu­tion Stereo Cam­era (HRSC) on board ESA's Mars Ex­press space­craft, which has been in or­bit around Mars since 2003. HRSC is op­er­at­ed by the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (DLR).

    DLR plan­e­tary re­search and NASA's Mars 2020 mis­sion

    February 15, 2021 
    Length: 00:06:35
    For decades, Mars has played an im­por­tant role in the So­lar Sys­tem re­search ac­tiv­i­ties of the Ger­man Aerospace Cen­ter (DLR). It has be­come in­creas­ing­ly clear that Earth’s neigh­bour in space shared more sim­i­lar­i­ties with Earth in its ear­ly days than it does to­day. It is there­fore con­sid­ered to be the plan­et on which the ex­is­tence of life long ago – or per­haps even to­day – is most con­ceiv­able. DLR sci­en­tists are in­volved in NASA’s Mars 2020 mis­sion with the Per­se­ver­ance rover, par­tic­u­lar­ly for im­age pro­cess­ing and eval­u­a­tion. In this video, they ex­plain the sci­en­tif­ic con­text of the mis­sion, the pro­cess of the ex­treme­ly tech­ni­cal­ly de­mand­ing land­ing on Mars and the ge­ol­o­gy of the land­ing site in the Jeze­ro Crater.
