NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter Will Fly On Mars In Just Two Weeks Time

NASA’s innovative helicopter is getting ready to fly. After the rover’s persistent voyage to Mars, its protective cover has now removed and it taken to the “airfield” to prepare for the historic first historic aircraft. The current take-off day expected to be closer to April 8, although that may change. Cleverness is a technology demonstration project. If successful, it will become the first powered vehicle to fly to another world, an important step that could open a new path for exploring the planets and moons of the solar system, which guides astronauts and rovers.

Bob Balaram, Mars helicopter chief engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, said in a statement, “Every step we’ve taken since this journey began six years ago is an undisputed territory in aviation history.” “And to be placed on this surface would be a big challenge. Surviving the first night on Mars alone without protecting and operating the rover would be a bigger problem.”

It is much more difficult to drive on Mars than on Earth. The Red Planet has the advantage that it has one-third of the gravitational experience we have here so it will be easier to lift but its atmospheric density is only 1 percent of what is found on Earth, so it can be tough to stay up. It is even colder there than our planet. . This means the skill must be small and light, with strong drivers and enough energy to keep you warm. Given this as a low-cost mission, the team was able to use off-the-shelf components for internal computers, allowing them to give it a small but very powerful brain.

These technical elements usually avoided because they not designed for space, but the opportunity to acquire skills to do more was at risk. At a press conference, the team confirmed that the computer is 150 times faster than the one used in perseverance. 

“When NASA’s Sojourner rover landed on Mars in 1997, it proved that the orbit of the Red Planet was possible and fully defined our vision of how to explore Mars. Similarly, we want to know the potential for the future of scientific research,”said Laurie Glaze, director of planetary science at NASA headquarters. 

“Properly named, Bizarre is a technology demonstration that will be the world’s first powered aircraft and, if successful, could expand our horizons and broaden the horizons of what is possible through exploration of Mars.” In order for the solar panel to be charged, it would take a Martian day (or solution) to innovate from the belly of the firm until it stands on all fours, and then be ready to fly. On its first flight, it can rotate 3 meters (10 feet) above the ground for 30 seconds. If this is a success, the team is planning four more aircraft in 30 years.

Mimi Aung, project director of skills at JPL, explained, “Mars is tough.”Our plan is to handle the challenges we’ve faced over the last six years in the same way that Red Planet has thrown at us – together, with hard work and a lot of skill.” Like perseverance, the invention has brought something special to the journey on the way to marking the first historically operated aircraft on another planet. In 1903, the world’s first powered aircraft flown by Wright Brothers, and a small amount of material from the aircraft placed under the helicopter’s solar panel.
