The Perseverance Mars rover photographs its own landing debris

On Mars, there is a unique type of “tumbleweed” rolling across the Martian plains.

These tumbleweeds are not plants – they are debris from the entry, descent and landing (EDL) equipment of NASA’s Perseverance rover. Percy encountered many of these remains, photographing them so engineers could study them.
