Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s Robotic Arm Starts Missions

The science instruments WASTON on the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s Robotic Arm have worked together with MasterCam-Z and SuperCam to learn more about Martian rocks. From the information provided by these cameras, scientists can learn if there was ever life or how the rocks were formed. We are currently building a 1:2 Perseverance Mars Rover Replica, which perfectly replicates the appearance structure of the real Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover, including the Robotic Arm, WASTON, MasterCam-Z, and Super Cam. Users can remotely control the Perseverance Mars Rover Replica to simulate the real Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s operation.

The Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s Robotic Arm plays a very important role when it comes to studying rocks. In order to remove new dust from the surface and expose the inside of the rocks, the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s Robotic Arm needs to move close to the spot of interest and then control its abrading corer to scrape off the surface. Once that’s done, the scientists will decide if that is a valuable site by carefully studying the images transmitted by PIXL and SHERLOC. The Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover’s Robotic Arm has not started to drill corers yet because scientists are still deciding which rocks are worthy candidates. The PIXL and SHERLOC will also be perfectly replicated on our Perseverance Mars Rover Replica.

Studying the rocks is how we can learn about Mars. Therefore, the more types of rocks the Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover discovers, the better we get to know about Mars, and the more we will be ready for human exploration on Mars. Our Perseverance Mars Rover Replica will also have the sample tubes replica, and users can put rocks, sands, or dirt into them. Not only can it be an ultra-realistic collection, but also a great teaching tool.
