On February 18th, NASA landed its Perseverance Rover on Mars. The Rover landed at 2:15 ET. The spacecraft sent pictures, audio, and video recordings back to Earth. This is possible because of the addition of high-definition cameras and microphones throughout the Rover. For the first time, humans can see a clear video of the landing. 

The video footage attracts attention, which can allow more people to know about the advancements in space technology. The video also allows engineers to study and visualize what functions and landing technologies need to be updated. This video allows humans to receive an up-close look at the surface of Mars because of the use of many small cameras through the vessel.
