This one is festooned with cameras, so we should have exciting footage of the landing process.

This should be fun!

An obvious instrument that keeps getting over looked, but not this time.

My daughter mentioned it at supper and my son wondered what it cost? I told him not to worry, the money was spent here on Earth.

Color stereoscopic imagery and Ingenuity taking off for some great drone shots. Quite a few amazing feats to land this one. Perseverance will be the envy of the Mars population.

Well, that alone is a great picture!

The grainy B&W first image that came from the camera for wheel interference already better than anything we could have expected only a decade ago. This will always be money well spent.

Okay.  Here it is!
The first audio: (lonely) gusts of wind recorded on Mars (Link) played at the press conference.  The one with the "hum" (item 3) is including the sound of the rover, the one without they've subtracted that sound leaving just the wind (item 1).  Item 2 is a podcast talking about all this.

Also, movies of the Entry Descent and Landing (EDL). Scroll down a bit here Link for the video, and further for a link to the library of raw images (!) Nothing high res there yet, but expect a deluge in the coming days and weeks.
