NASA's Perseverance rover has sent back two selfies of its camera-laden'face' and'head' from the Jezero Crater on the surface of Mars. The two snaps show Perseverance's remote sensing mast, which hosts many of the rover's cameras and scientific instruments. They were taken with the SHERLOC WATSON camera, located on the turret at the end of the rover's robotic arm. Perseverance touched down on the Red Planet on February 18 after a nearly seven-month journey through space. It is tasked with seeking traces of fossilised microbial life from Mars' ancient past and to collect rock specimens for return to Earth through future missions to the Red Planet.
