Actual image of the rover suspended from the jet pack just before touchdown.

Yes! Got home just in time and watched the last 30 minutes on the NASA channel.

Yes, so many things about it make my head spin. Trying to imagine shooting through space at a cool 12,000 mph and then parachuting to the floor. Also, the fact that it took 7 months to even get there. It's one of those good reminders of how small you are in the universe. It's also hard to believe we can do that but we still can't find a cure for my Sunday morning hangovers during football season.

Looks like 29 Palms Ca. or the Iraqi desert.

Gas gets it!

Maybe they were just creating content for the TikTok.

That video has gone viral and it is cool. However, it was taken from the Curiosity rover a few years ago. Not from Perseverance. At the end of the video you'll see the word "Curiosity" on the nameplate.
