Photo tour of Jezero Crater: Here's where Perseverance will land on Mars


For instance, the robotic spacecraft called Phoenix landed in a region of Mars' Vastitas Borealis on May 25, 2008, and operated until Nov. 2, 2008.

The image was captured by the High Resolution Stereo Camera onboard the European Space Agency's Mars Express orbiter.

The same mosaic used to generate this view (shown here) will be carried onboard the Mars 2020 spacecraft; it will be used to help the craft steer clear of hazards such as cliffs and dune fields on the Martian surface.


To create this mosaic, researchers aligned multiple images from the Context Camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
