What up, Mars! NASA Just Landed a New Rover on the Red Planet

Anddd Perseverance has made landing! NASA's most sophisticated rover to date has touched down on Mars after a seven-month, 292.5 million-mile journey. Perseverance will take on NASA's first-ever mission to search for tangible signs of past life on the Red Planet, exploring the Jezero Crater, which was supposedly a lake some 3.9 billion years ago. A helicopter, Ingenuity, also hitched a ride with the rover to attempt the first chopper flight on another planet. Solve this puzzle to take a look at Mars' Echus Chasma, which the European Space Agency collected photos from in 2008.
