Why watch the Perseverance rover on Mars when you can be the Perseverance rover on Mars?

National Geographic teamed up with NASA on a new augmented reality experience on Instagram, available via the @natgeo account.

Nat Geo said in a statement, “Through this new activation, Instagram users can expect to truly become one with the rover, seeing through its eyes, observing its first panorama, searching for ancient signs of life on the red planet and operating its extremities.”

Instagram users can perform AR actions including taking in an immersive 360-degree view of the planet’s panorama from the point of view of the Perseverance rover and taking a selfie with the rover.
