Perseverance Rover "Harbor Seal Rock' on Mars

This 8×10 print depicts the car-sized Perseverance Rover nickname Percy, that landed on the floor of Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, kicking off an ambitious surface mission that will hunt for signs of ancient Mars life and collect samples for future return to Earth.

For example, in the picture you see a stone that the NASA team Mastcam-Z principal investigator Jim Bell, of Arizona State University’s School of Earth and Space Exploration has token the name “Harbor Seal Rock,”.

Jim Bell indicated that the Martian wind probably carved Harbor Seal Rock into its curious shape over the eons, Bell said. He also pointed out patches that showed evidence of much faster-acting erosion — spots where the thrusters on Perseverance’s “sky crane” descent stage blew away Mars’ blanket of red dust on Feb. 18, exposing the surfaces of small rocks.
