Tango Delta - Perseverance Begins Life On Mars

20. feb.. 2021
589 062 Ganger

Mars 2020 AKA Perseverance arrived safely on Mars on Thursday afternoon and is in the process of transitioning to surface operations, preparing for years of exploration of Jezero crater - an ancient lake on Mars.
As of right now we're waiting for thousands of images to be downlinked from the descent and landing while the rover updates its software and deploys its instruments.
We're hoping for have some more substantial data on Monday.

  • "I'd suspect the least interesting place [to land] would be onto of another spacecraft." ...AND I SAID YOU FLYBOYS CRACK ME UP!

  • 10:37 Sample return mission: Why putting samples in small tubes, and dispersing them on the surface of Mars, so that another spacecraft has to collect it? Why not keeping it on the rover, so that the return mission only has to find the rover and not dozens of sites on Mars. Spreading the sample tubes all over the place just increases entropy unnecessarily.

  • It's just frustrating how exceedingly pointless sample collection without return is. Back contamination is pseudoscience and the damage being done versus just returning the samples is significant. But of course it's not their money they're spending so why would they care?

  • if this concept has been proven to work safely for 99% of the time, cant be just shoot the same rover up, say, every year ? Maybe with a little variation in instruments or entirely new tools, so that they could start digging or building habitat asap.

    • If the rover died upon landing then they would probably consider rebuilding and resending it, but it would be 2 years later at the next transfer window. There is however no point to having two functional copies on Mars, are they are designed to accomplish the same objectives so two would have almost no added value over one.

  • Why 6 wheels? Since 2001 the rovers the US has sent to Mars all have 6 wheels. Why 6, why not 4? Is 6 wheels more stable? I would think 4 wheels would be lighter and just as stable as 6.

    Dana Lee GibsonDana Lee Gibson9 dager siden

    • What are you doing to make things better for humanity? Billions of years ago Mars was covered with water, it might have supported life even, and then its climate changed, the planet dried out and it’s now looks pretty dead. One reason scientists want to study Mars is because they’d like to understand what happened and make sure it doesn’t happen on Earth.

  • Slightly off-topic...The gravity problem on the trip to Mars can be solved by launching multiple numbers of starships for redundancy but more for counterbalance by creating a central hub consisting of one-Km long tethers connected to the nose of even numbers of starships and rotating them at one RPM. I can't figure out why this is not a good idea.

Does anyone know why the landing proceedure is so complex and why they don't glide in like the shuttle, but then land vertically so that the vehicle could take off again? Seems odd to have something that can hover to drop a rover and then just fly off and crash.

  • Scott! You are going to want to learn about alluvial fans! I’ve lived in Death Valley in a very similar area geologically. I believe from personal experience and comparison that the vesiculated “rocks” we see are what I called “fluffy mudstone” In DV, the fluffy mud was typically down below the alluvial fan, just like Perseverence is. The fun thing about the alluvial fan here, is that it was formed by water flowing through a newly formed crater rim. The exciting thing there is that type of environment creates all kinds of useful mineralization. I myself have recovered gold and zircons from a similar impact here on earth at the Rock Elm disturbance.
