Nasa releases an astonishing image of its new Mars robot taken just moments before touchdown.

“Once the mast is successfully deployed, which will be on Saturday, we will proceed by taking lots of images. We’ll do a deck panorama of the rover. And we’re also going to do a full panorama of our landscape around us,” said Pauline Hwang, Perseverance’s surface strategic mission manager.
