Perseverance Rover collected Samples of Mars
The Rover successfully deposited 10 sample tubes made up of titanium on the Mars surface. Nearly 368 images were sent to Earth , which was capture more that a month. Among the total 10 tubes- Eight of them are filled with regolith and rock. The another one is a ‘witness tube’ and the last one is atmospheric sample collection tube.
On 30th January 2023 Rover dropped the final tube and also delivered samples to the team.
Another tube drop makes eight out of 10!
Reminder: this set I’m dropping is a backup. Plan A: I deliver the samples I’m still carrying (and others still to come) directly to #MarsSampleReturn. But if I can’t, this set alone would be worth sending back. https://t.co/kmo7DMdYxV pic.twitter.com/m8eJLm8M91

With a final tube drop, I’ve completed the diverse backup set of samples I’m setting down. Future #MarsSampleReturn robots could come for these, or if all goes well, I’ll have lots more fascinating stuff in hand when they get here – NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover
The Rover shared the photographs- which was clicked by Mastcam-Z camera fitted on the top of its mast.
