Queen lead guitarist Brian May shared a post on his official Instagram page revealing the first stereo taken by a 3D camera on a new Mars 2020 Perseverance Rover which is currently located on the surface of Mars, in order to provide 3D photos from Mars.
As many of you know, Brian May has been sharing unique and extraordinary astronomical events on his Instagram page with a long detailed explanation in the caption section to his fans in order to inform his fans, in addition to spreading his knowledge since May is also an astrophysicist with a Ph.D.
Brian May once revealed his stereo version of the stereoscopic panorama of our solar system viewed from the Parker Probe which was created by Johns Hopkins University on his official Instagram page in addition to expressing his excitement for the breathtaking view.
Later on, May shared another post on his official Instagram page revealing the first stereo view ever made of the two Martian moons named Phobos and Deimos which was taken from the surface of Mars. May also mentioned a new NASA mission, which included landing a new rover called Perseverance on the Martian surface, creating 3D versions of the images from Mars that will be taken by the stereo camera on Perseverance.
Brian May recently shared a post on his official Instagram page announcing that the Perseverance Rover is ready to go with its first stereo taken while it’s sitting on the surface of Mars. The Rover is going to travel around a crater named Jezero and will take 3-D pictures of its surroundings.
Here is what May said:
“Very excited about this! Claudia and I put together this very first stereo taken by the 3-D camera on the mast of the newly operational PERSEVERANCE Rover at present sitting on the surface of Mars, ready for its travels around the Jezero Crater. It’s a kind of ‘selfie’, really, the camera pointing down onto the rover itself. This picture shows the color calibration equipment – those two ‘wheels’ in the foreground – and an antenna behind for steering the helicopter INGENUITY. Behind – only visible really in the right image here – is the ground surface of Mars – waiting to be explored! Special thanks to Jim Bell, who co-opted us on to this incredible NASA team. There are already many raw images available to the public from this mission on the Perseverance website. I will later put a link in my SLINK so all you folks can get in there easily to enjoy these fresh fruits !!! Congratulations to the Team! Perseverance pays off !!! Bri”
