LANDING SITE TO PROVIDE KEY DATA

Perseverance has landed in Jezero Crater, located on the western edge of edge of Isidis Planitia – a giant impact basin just north of the Martian equator at about 18 degrees north latitude, 77 degrees longitude.

The location provides the potential to find ancient microbial life.

Western Isidis presents some of the oldest and most scientifically
interesting landscapes Mars has to offer, according to NASA.

Mission scientists believe the 28-mile-wide (45-kilometre) crater was home to a lake about 3.5 billion years ago.

The word “Jezero” in several slavic languages means “lake” – as well as to an ancient river delta.
