NASA announced on the 6th that the rover Perseverance, which landed on Mars, succeeded in the first running test. We also released an image of the tire marks of the rover.

According to NASA, the test was conducted on the 4th of US time as part of the operation check of the equipment and system of the rover. I ran about 6.5 meters for about 33 minutes. After moving forward 4 meters, he turned 150 degrees to the left and backed 2.5 meters. The image shows large and small stones rolling on the surface of Mars and traces of tires.

The rover successfully landed on Mars in February. In the future, the plan is to collect and analyze soil to search for life-related molecules that are traces of microorganisms.
