Mars After the self-health checks on the surface within a two-week period, NASA’s Perseverance the traveler is about to begin his highly anticipated movement for signs of past life on the distant planet.
Thursday, March 4 Picture of day traveler Twitter on account The two posts showed that the high-tech mobile lab made several moves as part of key tests to make sure everything was in good working order after its six and a half month journey.
Perseverance has completed all the necessary checks for the movement
The rover is next to a short clip showing that it has been acting for the first time in more than half a year, “This week I’m doing a lot of health checks, I’m getting ready to go to work. “I checked many tasks on my list, such as instrument tests, viewing and moving my arm.”

Another clip that shows one of the six wheels of the navigator spinning back and forth some time after sharing, “A quick test of my steering wheel and things look good as I get ready to roll. My team and I are eager to take action. Step by step.” posted with the message.

Most of the checks have been completed and NASA’s California-based company overseeing the mission. Jet Propulsion LaboratoryNo abnormality was reported from. This situation is Craters LakeHe may be just days away from making his first temporary ride on the surface.
As you remember, one of the main goals of the mission is to look for signs of a past life on the red planet. Craters Lake it was once filled with water and so it is thought to offer an excellent chance to make such a discovery.
Perseverance, the first explorer equipped with a sample collection system, will also pack interesting rock and soil samples to be transported to the world on a future mission. This will allow scientists to study the material with more powerful tools to confirm the discoveries made during the rover’s two-year mission.
