Perseverance rover, which is exploring Mars, has sent back the first HD panorama of the Red Planet, creating a fascinating 360-degree look from the Martian surface. The high-definition picture was created with its rotating Mastcam-Z, as the rover combined 142 images. According to NASA, the "cliff face of an ancient river delta" can be seen on the picture.
