NASA’s Perseverance rover which landed on Mars after 7 months of its take-off from Earth sends some stunning pictures and high-resolution panoramas. The pictures are breathtaking and give a lot of new perspectives about the planet Mars.

Rover also sent his first picture even before his landing on 18 February 2021 which was a great achievement by the team. The seven-month space voyage, officially named Mars 2020, has been nine years in the making.

This is a high-resolution still image, part of a video taken by several cameras as NASA's Perseverance rover touched down on Mars. A camera aboard the descent stage captured this shot.

This late-afternoon view from the front Hazard Avoidance Camera on NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Opportunity shows a pattern of rock stripes on the ground, a surprise to scientists on the rover team.

This high-resolution image shows one of the six wheels aboard NASA's Perseverance Mars rover, which landed on Feb.18, 2021. The image was taken by one of Perseverance's color Hazard Cameras (Hazcams).

This panorama, taken on Feb. 20, 2021, by the Navigation Cameras, or Navcams, aboard NASA's Perseverance Mars rover, was stitched together from six individual images after they were sent back to Earth.

Stitched together from 79 individual images, this Mars 2020 Mastcam-Z right-eye 110-mm zoom mosaic is from the camera's first high-resolution panorama imaging sequence.

This image from one of the rear Hazcams, aboard NASA's Perseverance Mars rover, shows a smoke plume from the crashed descent stage that lowered the rover to the Martian surface.

This wind-carved rock seen in first 360-degree panorama taken by the Mastcam-Z instrument shows just how much detail is captured by the camera systems.
