Stunning Sunset On Mars, Perseverance Rover of NASA Captures Image
According to the Science Alert portal, this image is completely different from the sunset on Earth. There is a big reason behind this. The distance of Mars from the Sun is greater than that of the Earth. This means that it does not receive much sunlight. It is less than half that of the Earth. The atmosphere of Mars is also quite different from that of Earth. It is composed largely of carbon dioxide and contains minor amounts of nitrogen. The presence of oxygen on Mars is very less. NASA has said that the main objective of Perseverance's mission is astrobiology. This involves searching for signs of microbial life.
The Perseverance rover will also gather information about the planet's geology and past climate. This could pave the way for a human mission to reach Mars. This will be the first mission to collect rock and dust from this planet. NASA plans to collaborate with the European Space Agency (ESA) to bring sealed samples from Mars to Earth for in-depth analysis. Spacecraft will be sent for this.
Recently, NASA's James Webb Space Telescope captured the image of the most distant star in the universe. It is called 'Earendel'. It existed for the first billion years after the Big Bang. The James Webb Telescope has shown it to be a very large B-type star. It is more than twice as hot as our Sun and about 1 million times brighter. According to NASA, Earendel, located in the Sunrise Arc Galaxy, was only discovered thanks to the combined force of technology and nature through an effect called gravitational lensing. The James Webb telescope has also been able to see other details in Earendel's host galaxy Sunrise Arc. It is the largest galaxy identified in the first billion years of the universe. It contains both new and old star forming regions.
