NASA’s Perseverance spacecraft continues to send us images taken on Mars at full speed. So how are these images taken? What technologies are used to deliver images to us?
NASA recently successfully completed another important mission for space history. The space agency of the USA, launched in July 2020 Perseverance spacecraft successfully to the surface of Mars had downloaded. After the successful landing, the first images were published, and the video of the moment the spacecraft landed on Mars was shared.
The video shared by NASA featured images taken from the cameras on the Perseverance spacecraft. However, we were able to hear sounds from the planet Mars. Many interesting photos and sounds from Mars have also reached us thanks to Perseverance. Well NASA from us 470 million kilometers away How did the images and sounds taken on Mars reach us?
How were the images taken?
The images we see were of course not the first images from Mars. But the images taken by Perseverance, 20 MP cameras it enabled us to see the planet so clearly for the first time. Behind the images we see 23 cameras were located. Seven of these cameras are only to record the entry, descent and descent phases of the planet It was added to the vehicle.
Thanks to the cameras on the spacecraft, we came across exciting landing images that we can see above. Thanks to the new clear images, NASA’s scientists are looking for the spacecraft to be used on the next Mars mission better preparation for the landing phase they will have.
How was the 360-degree photo created?
NASA has not only images taken from the surface of Mars, but also from the Perseverance spacecraft. A 360 degree photo also shared. This photo we saw above (to this link you can see clearly by clicking), located in the vehicle Thanks to the camera called Navcam withdrew. This 360-degree image emerged by combining multiple photographs into a single photograph.
So how were the photos delivered to the world?
While taking photos was a technical problem in itself, delivering these photos to our planet was one of the problems to be solved. At this point, NASA’s Satellite named MAVEN Activated. This satellite, which has been circling Mars for about 6.5 years, is of great importance to provide telecommunication in the Perseverance mission.
Using the ultra-high frequency radio transmitter, MAVEN uses the data to the maximum At 2.048 kbps It transports to the world. The spacecraft was placed in an orbital position calculated last year to send data successfully. However, the slow speed of the spacecraft’s transmission also prompted NASA to find a different solution.
NASA’s Secret Code to Parachute Perseverance Spacecraft Solved
Camera engineer Adam Nelessen, who took part in the Perseverance mission, said that these images were on the spacecraft. Data Stora Unit (DSU – Data Storage Unit) announced that it was delivered to us more quickly. This unit is the raw it compresses images and sounds, significantly reducing the size of data.
