Animation: Flight over Jezero crater on Mars
The video shows a simulated flight over Jezero crater on Mars. An old river delta near the western rim of the crater testifies that it once housed a lake. The 'Perseverance' rover of NASA's Mars 2020 mission is scheduled to land here in February 2021 and search for traces of earlier life on Mars. DLR is represented on the mission's science team and is involved in the evaluation of the data and images.
