Mars Perseverance Sol 16: Parachute Up-Look Camera B
NASA's Mars Perseverance rover acquired this image during its descent to Mars, using its Parachute Up-Look Camera B. This camera is mounted on the spacecraft's backshell and looks up at the parachute.
This image was acquired on Mar. 7, 2021 (Sol 16) at the local mean solar time of 17:28:25.
Ever wonder what it would be like to have an "astronaut's" view of landing on Mars? For the touchdown of the Perseverance rover, the engineering team added several cameras to document the entry, descent, and landing in even greater detail. The cameras recorded stunning views of the landing, capturing full-color video of the vehicle’s final descent to the Martian surface. The videos also provided data to help the team explore How does the parachute deploy and operate in the Martian atmosphere? The Mars 2020 entry, descent, and landing camera suite included the Parachute "up look" cameras, Mounted on the backshell, looking upward at parachute deployment and inflation. Three cameras were installed, two of which successfully recorded the parachute.

Beyond the Martian landscapes, we see above all enigmatic and poetic images , which lead us to think that these prints are the first contemporary works of art created by the AI of a robot on another planet more than 62 million kilometers away.
This is quite simply the first extraterrestrial artificial intelligence to create works of art on MARS
A disturbing and poetic immersion on this distant planet that has never been so close and familiar thanks to the technological prowess of human beings always in search of exploration.
