NASA’s Mars Rover has less than 300,000 miles left before it can reach Mars. Red Planet. The landing is the biggest challenge for the mission to date due to the sheer magnitude of the mission and an eleven-minute delay in communication among Earth as well as Mars. Perseverance is set to plunge into the surface of Mars completely blind and with no outside assistance and will go through the sequence of events known by”the ” seven minutes of terror”. If everything goes as planned, Perseverance will land in the Red Planet’s Jezero Crater which is an ancient lakebed in which living things once lived. Perseverance will investigate Jezero by analyzing soil and rocks samples in search of fossil evidence of extraterrestriallife.Nasa Perseverance landing time UK.
Hannah Barnyard, an astronomer at the Royal Observatory Greenwich in London she explained “The question of is there another life form in the Universe is one that has excited many people.If there exists evidence to suggest that existence once existed in our neighbor’s backyard It suggests that life may exist across the Universe.In the UK the time will be in the UK at 8.55pm GMT, and in India it will be 2.20am in the morning on Friday.
Here are some additional locations and times for landings. can be confirmed.
Central European Time: 9.55pm.Moscow, Russia: 11.55pm
Beijing, China: 4.55am.Seoul, South Korea: 5.55am
Tokyo, Japan: 5.55am.Canberra, Australia: 7.55am
Mars Rover timetable for landing:
The landing of the rover is expected to be one of the most exciting NASA missions ever, and a lot of aspects will have to be done right to ensure Perseverance to be able to climb the mountain.
Below is a listing of timestamped events that include the 11-minute delay during the landing sequence.
8.38pm GMT –
Perseverance and its landing vehicle will break off from the cruise stage of the mission. They will be separated after the spacecraft has been cruising for six-and-a-half years.
8.48pm GMT –
Perseverance will plunge in the Martian space at speeds approximately 12,000 mph.
NASA anticipates that the resistance imposed from Mars’s atmosphere Martian atmosphere to heat the Perseverance heat shield to temperatures of 1300C (2,370F).
8.52pm GMT –
Perseverance will deploy its supersonic parachutist that will reduce the speed of the rover by a significant amount, but not completely. Within 20 seconds, Perseverance will jettison the heat shield and allow it to look around the Earth’s surface to find a suitable landing area.
8.54pm GMT –
The reverse of the capsule’s entry point will be removed along with the parachute. Perseverance will be free to use the Skycrane it is a jetpack like device that has 8 rocket motors. The engines slow down the rover to a comfortable 1.7mph.
8.55pm GMT –
Skycrane will lower the rover towards the planet’s surface using nylon cables. When Perseverance hits the ground, Skycrane will detach and take off and crash far distance from the surface.
If everything goes as planned the eventual payoff promises to be astounding.Ms Barnyard stated that persistence can help us understand the Martian surroundings, revealing more about the Martian’s weather patterns including the infamous dust storms.We will find out the existence of Jezero Crater ever existed and whether it is still the ideal place for life to flourish and more details about the Earth’s geological past.
