Perseverance will also be the first space probe to collect and store samples of Martian rocks like the ones you see here.

These rocks are examples of the type of rock the team called “chal” (pronounced “chish”), and the Navajo word means “frog.”

Also, according to the information, the diameter of the rocks is about 50 cm on average. Check out the great record:
