Watch live as NASA attempts to land the Perseverance rover on Mars! Confirmation of a successful landing at Jezero Crater is expected around 3:55 pm Eastern (20:55 UTC), if everything goes to plan. The NASASpaceflight team will be providing live coverage of all of the critical events leading up to landing through to (hopefully) the first images from Perseverance on the Red Planet.

    Would Perseverance have seen 𝐁𝐄𝐀𝐆𝐋𝐄 𝟐 on its way down? I think Beagle 2 is about 500 miles ESE of Jezero, but which direction did Perseverance approach from? Could it have shot the only sub-orbital photos of Beagle 2? I’m interested as I’m from the UK!

    Fantastic project and congratulations on a successful landing. I understand that, once Percy had been successfully deposited and cables cut, the Skycrane was scheduled to fly off, presumably to crash (soft land?) onto the surface of Mars. Percy is scheduled to collect up to 2 rock and soil samples from the planet, which will be secured in tubes, to be deposited in a cache for later collection by another mission, loaded onto a small rocket, sent up to an orbiting collection vessel, which will then be returned to Earth. Would it have been possible to install some additional experiments on the Skycrane, provide it with more fuel for a soft landing? In particular, was it considered to provide this mission with a sample return capability, using the Skycrane as a collector / launcher? It seems a shame to haul the mass of the Skycrane all the way to Mars, only for it to do one job and then destroy itself.

    I like to watch you guys so much more than the official NASA stream. You have to-the-point, knowledgeable commentary rather than NASA’s endless yada-yada of pleasantries: “Here we have Jack, he is head of the thingymajig in JPL and he answers the question of Jill, who asks: is there a toilet on the Rover?” -Thank you Kelly, and first let me say how delighted i am to be here” -“Yes Jack and we are so happy to have you, thank you for your time!” -“Well Kelly, you are very welcome and that question of Jill is a great question and I am so happy you asked” Yada Yada Yada and it goes on and on with every new guest on the programme. PLEASE! BE NASA! DO NOT BE A SPACE TEA PARTY!

    How do parachutes work in an atmosphere that is approx 0.006 the Earths?

    • Fred Planatia
      Fred Planatia

      The chutes are an important part of a multi-component landing system which decelerates from 1000MPH to 200MPH, therefore saving on propellant that would otherwise be needed by the descent stage to decelerate from 1000MPH to 1.7MPH. This allows for a heavier payload to be deployed on the surface of Mars. The entire system worked like a charm again: (1) aerobrake in a heat proof shell from 20,000 MPH down to 1000MPH with thrusters on the backshell for steering, (2) deploy the house-sized parachute to begin deceleration from 1000MPH to 200MPH, (3) release the heatshield, and at 7000 ft, cut parachute, (4) release backshell, and transition to powered descent, decelerating all the way down to 1.7MPH, and (5) skycrane the rover for the last 70ft or so to avoid disturbing the landing site, where upon the rover cuts itself free as soon as wheels touch the ground and the powered descent stage diverts and crashes at a safe distance. Parts of this landing system has been developed during the last rover missions and refined some more. Thus NASA could land the heaviest object ever on another planetary body (1t). This time they used range radar to determine the best time to release the chute, and the descent stage used a new system called relative terrain navigation to pinpoint the landing site which is the smallest region ever targeted.

    • Pomifera Does it work?

      It knocked it down from like 1000-150 mph so I would say it works pretty well.

    • User 2C47

      @Mike Holloway Still a lot more drag than the heat shield, definitely something worth having.

    • Wouter De Vlieger
      Wouter De Vlieger

      @Mike Holloway getting rid of that speed propulsively would need far more fuel than the mass of the parachute. So Percy would need to be a lot lighter to compensate for that.

      @User 2C47 Seems like a waste or even a risk with very little effect.

    Everyone likes to say that the Star Ship maneuver is crazy.. but NASA has that beat hands down... Twice.. Just imagine the meetings.. "Ahh, so.. you want to take a multi-million dollar robot rover, stick it in the middle of air bags.. and bounce it around until it stops... Get OUT!".. or "Ahh, so you want to give a jeep sized rover a ride down to the surface with retro rockets.. I get that part.. but then you want to drop the rover down on cables.. turning the retro rocket pack into a space age Huey helicopter, set the rover down while hovering with the retro rockets.. cutting the cables, and flying away... get OUT!"

    It don't take 11 minutes to get from Mars. It only takes 8 minutes to get from the sun , Mars is not that far

    • Fred Planatia
      Fred Planatia

      Just a simple calculation. Earth is 1AU from sun (8 light minutes), Mars is ~1.5AU (12 light minutes), but if they are both on a line with the sun and the same side (closet approach of the two planets, that's only 0.5AU or 4 light minutes. We launched Perserverance when the planets were closer together and they have been separating since then. At their greatest separation Mars is opposite the Sun to Earth and then the distance between Mars and Earth is 2.5AU or 20 light minutes, so it makes sense that after Earth and Mars separate during Perserverance journey, the distance lies somewhere between the minimum and the maximum (4-20 light minutes). All of this is just approximation to give a ballpark value. In reality, the two planets are not traveling in perfect circles but ellipses, and they are not even orbiting in exactly the same plane, so in fact the distances are somewhat more variable. The shortest and longest distance between them (occurring rarely) is 54million km and 401 million km, or 3 and 22 minutes, respectively so you see the conclusions based on my guestimation that 11 light minutes is reasonable and possible are not affected.

    • Mark Hobbs
      Mark Hobbs

      They have explained all this. The 1st images were sent from the cameras (Front and back) used for navigation. They still have their (transparent) lens coverings in place. They used these, sending low resolution pics to confirm the successful landing. HR cameras are on the arm, which has not been extended yet. Expected within next couple of days once all the systems have been checked out. The High gain Antenna has yet to be deployed so bandwidth is very limited .. given all the information that has to be sent and received using a UHF antenna.

    "Jezero" is Serbian (and Croatian, Bosnian, etc) word for "Lake" / i don't know who is the explorer who named the crater a long time ago, but i'm glad he left a mark telling the world who he is, where he (she?) is coming from and who we are aside from the mainstream media picture of us. Whatever, nice seeing it in the context of such a feat! Kudos to the whole team. It is almost unbeleieveable that humanity is capable of performing something like this landing so smoothly and reliably.

      it was an 11 minute lag to/from and a 22 minute lag to and from. Don't quote me on the next part because I only thought of this: the rover only has 110 watts of continuous power available from its fission reactor so its batteries need to charge up so that it can deliver powerful radio bursts for sending data. Because were dealing with a limited power source, transmission is going to be capped at some theoretical rate proportional to what the reactor is putting out (less and less each year).

      @The Aviationist Khizr They had something like seven different cameras filming the landing. As I recall, rover looking down at the ground, rover looking up at the skycrane, skycrane looking down at the rover, skycrane looking up at the backshell, backshell looking down at the skycrane, and a couple of these are doubled up and one has a dedicated microphone. Some were stored on the rover and some were stored on the comms relays. All the footage is saved, and we expect to receive these over the next few days. Today we expect one still from the rover-to-ground camera, for example.
