Mars rover Perseverance: Listen to the first sounds from Mars recorded by a NASA rover

The clip then shows the rover touching down, gently lowered to the surface by the Skycrane – a jetpack-like device armed with eight rocket engines.

Steve Jurczyk, acting NASA administrator, said: “For those who wonder how you land on Mars – or why it is so difficult – or how cool it would be to do so – you need look no further.

“Perseverance is just getting started, and already has provided some of the most iconic visuals in space exploration history.

“It reinforces the remarkable level of engineering and precision that is required to build and fly a vehicle to the Red Planet.”
