A NASA rover found garbage on Mars



A NASA rover found garbage on Mars.


NASA's Perseverance Rover recently noticed landing debris on Mars.

The Perseverance rover landed on Mars in February 2021.

Perseverance doesn't have much time to investigate the garbage because it goes on its mission.

Humans have proven to be the most wasted species on Earth, and now we have somehow managed to throw garbage on the surface of Mars.


There is garbage in the darkest depths of the ocean, about 35,700 meters below the surface. There is also garbage on Mars.


While searching for evidence of past Martian life, NASA's Perseverance rover recently noticed landing debris trapped in a jagged rock. It is a thermal material that the space agency used to protect the Perseverance spacecraft from extreme temperatures as it traveled to Mars and fell into the Martian atmosphere.


"My team noticed something unexpected: it's a piece of a thermal blanket that they think came from my descent stage, the rocket-propelled jet pack that knocked me down on the day of landing in 2021," NASA wrote. on Twitter from the Perseverance rover.




The Perseverance rover landed on Mars in February 2021. On its way, the spacecraft holding the rover abandoned instruments and objects, including a heat shield, a supersonic parachute, and a rocket-propelled crane that lowered the rover to the ground. The car-sized robot has already bounced off its parachute, so it's no surprise that the rover has tripped over some debris from landing.


Perseverance doesn't have much time to investigate garbage. He is now on top of his mission as he explores a delta of a dry river in Jezero Crater. About 3 billion years ago, NASA scientists suspected that this area was full of water.


"This delta is one of the best locations on Mars for the rover to look for signs of microscopic life in the past," NASA said.
