Like sands through the hourglass, so are the sols of our lives. Can you believe I've been here for 3,000 Martian days?
Here's a recent panorama marked by curved rock terraces, or benches. These formations aren't just scenic; they tell of ancient Mars.
Stay for the view 📸
Designed to image rocks a few meters away, I've turned the Remote Microscopic Imager in my ChemCam instrument from microscope to telescope and spied the wall of Gale Crater, 59 km away. See the massive mosaic in laser vision: #PewPew
Look cute – and I won’t delete later.
Greetings from the Red Planet! I took another selfie as I explored a new spot dubbed “Mary Anning,” where I'm analyzing drill samples. I conducted experiments on them in my continued search for organic molecules.
🎞 LIVE FROM @LockheedMartin: Bennu, we see you! Tune in as our @OSIRISREx spacecraft descends to the rocky surface of asteroid Bennu to attempt to scoop some space rocks from site Nightingale! Watch:
On Oct. 20, @OSIRISREx is set to collect samples from asteroid Bennu. From one sample-caching mission to another, I wish you all the best.
My friends @NASAMoon and @NASAAero Tagged me. I tag fellow rover @MarsCuriosity. TAG your friends to play along. #ToBennuAndBack
I’m it! @NASAPersevere got me in an interplanetary game of tag in honor of the @OSIRISRex TAG (Touch-and-Go) maneuver taking place on Tuesday. To both sample collection missions, I wish you many happy returns!
TAG your friends and play along. I tag @NASAExoplanets.
I ran a special experiment on Mars. Months of analysis before results, but it's a red-letter day on the Red Planet to use one of only two portions of TMAH (tetramethylammonium hydroxide) to look for new kinds of carbon-bearing molecules.
This #WomensEqualityDay, tune in to hear from:
- Clara Ma, who won the contest that gave me my name
- Stephanie Wilson, @NASA_Astronauts
- Charlie Blackwell-Thompson, @NASAKennedy
- and moderator Dr. Christyl Johnson, @NASAGoddard
Like buttah! This Martian rock cut easily with the rotary mode on my drill—almost no percussion required.
The ease with which it cut and the clumpiness of the tailings means it's fine grained and potentially clay-bearing. More science to come.
You've got MOXIE, kid. I love MOXIE. (And the rest of your instrument suite.) Congrats on the picture-perfect launch today, @NASAPersevere. I'll be here cheering you on every step of the way as you #CountdownToMars. See you in February!
Takin' Care of Business ⚡️ I'm still at the grind up here on Mars (check out ), looking forward to new friends joining this journey of exploration.
Good luck on your launch and #CountdownToMars, @NASAPersevere!
