Luck favors the prepared. @NASA_Wallops' work on my parachute is proof of that. They overcame an extraordinary engineering challenge by doing everything possible to get my parachute right. See how they made it work under harsh conditions:
Take a close look at my new home. Members of my team are giving you a tour around the high-def 360-degree panorama I sent back. They're zooming in on the details of the Martian terrain I'm in and are answering your questions live. #CountdownToMars
Get a guided tour around the first high-def 360-degree look at my new environment. Mission experts explain why it’s got scientists back on Earth excited, and will answer your questions. Tune in today, Feb. 25, 1pm PT (4pm ET/2100 GMT). #CountdownToMars
A moment of respect for the descent stage. Within two minutes of safely delivering me to the surface of Mars, I caught the smoke plume on one of my Hazcams from its intentional surface impact — an act that protected me and the scientific integrity of my landing site.
I’m taking it all in. This is the first 360º view of my home using Mastcam-Z. This dual, high-definition camera system sits atop my mast and has zoom capability. Inspect tiny details of Jezero Crater with the special interactive viewer at #CountdownToMars
Picture yourself on Mars. @NASA collaborated with @NatGeo to make an augmented reality effect using my mission data. Head to @Instagram where @NASA_Astronauts Jessica Watkins demonstrates how to join me and even take a selfie together.
Scan this image for the various pieces of my landing system, which did their jobs perfectly before coming to rest on Mars. Teams of experts poured years of work into each one. My safe landing is what tells you they nailed it.
On Thursday, I joined the world and watched in awe as the Perseverance Rover touched down on the surface of Mars. It was a remarkable feat — one made possible by the hard work and ingenuity of the team at @NASA.
I called to congratulate them on their historic landing.
Behind every successful mission is a great team. Thank you for your kind words, Mr. President. My team and I couldn't agree more: when you work together, there's nothing you can't do.
Busy, busy. What I’ve been up to since landing, you ask? Well, quite a bit. On Feb. 22 at 11am PT (2pm ET/1900 GMT, hear my team back on Earth discuss the data I’ve sent them so far and what I’ll be doing these upcoming days. #CountdownToMars
