The US spacecraft, Perseverance has successfully landed on the surface of Mars about seven months after taking off from Earth.

The spacecraft named Perseverance Rover landed on the surface of Mars at 2.40 am Nepali time today.

Scientists are celebrating the successful landing of the spacecraft in the control room of the US space agency NASA in California. Scientists shouted for joy at the success of the mission.

NASA has also released some photos taken after the spacecraft landed on Mars. This is NASA's most ambitious project to study the possibility of life on Mars since the Viking mission of the 1970s.

The spacecraft, which is about the size of a car, is equipped with the scientific equipment needed to study fossils. The six-wheeled rover traveled 470 million kilometers in seven months to reach Mars.

The mission's most difficult challenge was to land safely on the surface of Mars. So far, 14 missions have attempted to land on Mars, but eight attempts have been successful. They are all American campaigns.
