NASA releases first audio from Mars, video of Fortitude Rover landing

The video clip shows the deployment of the parachute and the touchdown of the rover on the surface of the Red Planet.

US space agency NASA released the first audio from Mars on Monday, the sound of a blurred wind Perseverance captured by Rover.

NASA also released the first video of the rover landing on the red planet.

A microphone did not work during the Decent but the rover was able to capture audio after landing on Mars.

NASA engineers played a short audio clip of what they said, a gust of wind on the surface.

The video clip, lasting three minutes and 25 seconds, shows the deployment of a parachute in a dust cloud and the touchdown of a rover on the surface of Mars.

“These are really amazing videos,” said Michael Watkins, director of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, at a briefing for reporters. “This is the first time we have ever been able to catch an event like landing on Mars.”

Jessica Samuels, mission manager for Perseverance, said the rover was working as expected so far.

“I’m happy to say that perseverance is healthy,” Mr. Samuels said.
