NASA Perseverance Mars rover healthy, exits 'safe mode'

"With the launch of Perseverance, we begin another historic mission of exploration", said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine.

When a spacecraft enters safe mode, all but essential systems are turned off until it receives new commands from mission control.

The spacecraft also experienced a delay in setting up its communications link with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, its mission control.

The complicated route to the Mars Sample Return mission involves NASA collaborating with the European Space Agency and worldwide partners. The problem, the agency says, was triggered when parts of the spacecraft became too cold in the Earth's shadow, and safe mode kicked in. As the spacecraft entered into Earth's shadow, the Sun was temporary blocked by Earth, and the outlet temperature dropped, said Wallace.

The rover will travel for seven months and is expected to reach the planet's Jezero Crater to study the landing site's geology, demonstrate technologies in support of future human and robotic space exploration and collect and return rock samples to Earth.

A rift between Princes William and Harry was inevitable , according to sources of an explosive new book set for release in August. Katie added that Meghan "very much a driving force" and wasn't being credited by people for "giving Harry confidence".

First, the proximity of the spacecraft to Earth immediately after launch was saturating the ground station receivers of NASA's Deep Space Network.

The mission uses a liquid freon loop to bring heat from the centre of the spacecraft to radiators on the cruise stage - the part that helps fly the rover to Mars - which have a view to space.

Since NASA's first Mars rover Sojourner landed in 1997, the agency has sent two others, Spirit and Opportunity. A NASA-provided payload on the orbiter would provide the capabilities needed to capture and contain the samples, placing them in an Earth entry vehicle that would land the samples safely on USA soil.

Among the many high-tech tools on board the Perseverance, the Mars Oxygen In-Situ Resource Utilization Experiment, or MOXIE, is created to prove that it is in fact possible to convert Martian carbon dioxide into oxygen. "Next stop, Jezero Crater".

NASA's Mars 2020 perseverance rover had officially lifted for Mars from Florida in the United States on 30 th of July. Charged with returning astronauts to the Moon by 2024, NASA will establish a sustained human presence on and around the Moon by 2028 through NASA's Artemis program.
