Stunning photo shows Perseverance's Mars landing from above

NASA’s Perseverance rover shared an exciting photo on Friday from right before its wheels first touched the surface of Mars.

In the photo shared on the official Perseverance Twitter account, we get an extremely rare, close-up photo of an entire rover on (or almost on) another planet. The lower right quarter shows the wires that were used to lower the vehicle down from its “jetpack” lander, which hovered above the surface using rocket propulsion.
