In the Sky This Week – February 16, 2021 — 5 Comments

  1. … and three days later, Perseverance finally touched down successfully and is snapping its first images!I’m sure there were more than a few spontaneous prayers in the NASA control room in those last few minutes… there certainly were at my end 🙂 Really looking forward to the wealth of new science we can expect from this amazing mission.

    • I joined a NASA Night Sky Network Zoom Watch Party – it was pretty cool! When I joined, an engineer was talking about his work on the helicopter – those wings are HUGE! I watched the the landing with my in-laws; it was cool to see the same image up on the control room “big screen” that I had on a laptop next to the TV running the NASA Entry, Descent and Landing simulation.
