New flash for all PSA community space cadets: NASAs Perseverance rover sends back its first images.
Perseverance is by far the most sophisticated rover ever built. The mission even includes the Mars Helicopter, the first drone to be deployed on an extra-terrestrial body. I lucked out during a JPL business visit getting to see the chassis driven down the main road of the Lab. At that time it was partially built including the drive train. The technicians were driving the bad boy between buildings - I’m sure there was more than a small amount of show it off pride involved. You have to see Perseverance to appreciate how massive this latest rover is. Another day of pride for NASA and the American space program. Kudos to the entire engineering and science team. Can’t wait to see what Perseverance discovers!
