Perseverance Rover’s Descent and Touchdown on Mars (Official NASA Video)

NASA's Mars 2020 Perseverance mission captured thrilling footage of its rover landing in Mars' Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021. The real footage in this video was captured by several cameras that are part of the rover's entry, descent, and landing suite. The views include a camera looking down from the spacecraft's descent stage (a kind of rocket-powered jet pack that helps fly the rover to its landing site), a camera on the rover looking up at the descent stage, a camera on the top of the aeroshell (a capsule protecting the rover) looking up at that parachute, and a camera on the bottom of the rover looking down at the Martian surface.

The audio embedded in the video comes from the mission control call-outs during entry, descent, and landing.

    It feels so surreal when u think there are planets, solar system, galaxy, galaxies, who are we , how is it all being , is it really real, we went out in the space to another planet. It’s just so weird when you give it a thought for a minute or so

    I find it funny that it could've touched down successfully or crashed but we wouldn't know it back home until the signals were relayed. Everyone cheered a long time after it already landed lol!

    Why is the jerkiness in the video so REGULAR? Is this because you didn't seed your random numbers generator correctly while rendering this pathetic animation? NASA, try harder next time. Dropping a box out of a helicopter in Atacama desert then doing some editing (hence the regular nature of the jerkiness in the video). Once caught lying about 'moon landings' no one is going to believe you about 'Mars' either.
