NASA: Mars surface looks maroon due to Perserverance camera glitch

Ever wondered what it would be like to get marooned on Mars? Well, these photos may provide a clue. 

They show the surface of the red planet taking on a rather strange hue. 

But while its maroon appearance is certainly out of this world, it is merely due to the cameras on Nasa‘s Perseverance craft not yet having calibrated as it comes in to land. 

Perseverance last week became the first rover to video its own Mars landing and has taken more than 23,000 photos. 

Al Chen, of Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said: ‘These videos and these images are the stuff of our dreams.’  

New images from Mars shot by the NASA Perseverance rover have revealed the impressive colour of the red planet's surface
