Human waste begins to be noticed on the surface of the red planet.
surely it is something innate to our own essence and a action What is it complicated to avoidsince no human being has yet set foot on the land that covers the distant planet, but seeing how we leave our space junk scattered across a world millions of miles from home is discouraging. the continuous missions that are launching to Mars they have a risk considerable and one of the effects that we begin to notice is how the leftover equipment and technology that stops working stays abandoned to their fate, staining a planet free of human waste.
NASA shows us how remains of Perseverance lie on the surface of Mars, in one of the first human footprints on the distant planet
It has been the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, a laboratory founded by the POT and managed by California Institute of Technologywhich has allowed us to know some snapshot about the status of parts of the Perseverance downhill team. The image that we show you under these lines shows us a part of the back case and of parachute that reached the Martian surface at the time of the rover’s arrival on the planet. The Photography has been taken to 8 meters high for naivetythe NASA helicopter, the day April 19, 2022when he was making his 26th flight.
We have already talked about the autonomous technology of the rover perseverancebut we had not had the opportunity to observe how the landing wreckage already decorate the red surface of Mars. It should be remembered that the rover’s descent occurred on the day February 18, 2021 and that the images of the remains they will be great help for the engineersas they will reveal how some of the mission’s components behaved during entry into the Martian atmosphere, descent and landing.
Despite the appearance of these remainsNASA officials assure that these they held the landing quite well and that the back case acted like a heat shield to protect both the rover and the helicopter inside it. The descent on the jezero crater was made possible, ultimately, by parachute deployed, which also helped the success of the mission. We hope that one day a human being will step on Mars and have the possibility of eliminating the remains of junk that will accumulate with the next missions.
