To celebrate the 15th anniversary of the launch of the automatic interplanetary station Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, NASA has published a selection of photographs of the Martian surface.
After landing on Mars the next year, Perseverance will begin looking for signs of ancient microbial and micro-organic life on the planet that may have existed 3.8 billion years ago in its rocks and dirt.
The launch marks the beginning of the seven-month journey towards Mars. Once the mission reaches the planet, China will become the second country to land and operate a rover of the Red Planet’s surface.
The aim of the mission, which is known as the Emirates Mars Mission, is to provide answers to scientific questions that are left unanswered and provide data on the planet’s weather and atmosphere.
