Nasa's Perseverance rover has beamed back amazing first images of Mars after successfully landing on the Red Planet.
t ended its seven-month journey to another world after touching down in a crater that was once a lake billions of years ago.
The six-wheeled machine will now collect rock samples from the crater that will later be analysed for signs of fossilised alien microbes.
Perseverance touched down at 3.44pm ET (8.44pm GMT).
The first images were a little grainy due to dust on the camera lens, but the rocky Martian surface is in clear view.
Nasa said better quality images captured by the rover will arrive in the coming hours after the completion of initial checkups on its scientific instruments.
