NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter is just two days away from making history. The first occasion will be when humanity is about to succeed in an aircraft-controlled, controlled flight to another planet. If all goes according to plan, the 4-pound (1.8-kg) rotorcraft will fly from the Jjero crater of Mars at 12:30 pm on Sunday (Tuesday local time). It was told that it would run 10 feet (3 meters) above the surface for 30 seconds.
Mission control experts at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California expect the first flight to be attempted from 4:15 am EDT (1:15 pm PDT) the next day. NASA will broadcast live coverage of the TV team. The flight will take place at 3:30 EDT (local US time) or 12:30 PDT (pacific daylight time) in the morning.
NASA is fully prepared for the test flight of this helicopter. NASA has also checked its rotor by rotating it. It is working perfectly. NASA has given this information through a tweet. In a tweet made by Rover Perception, it said that I will have zooming cameras to watch and keep an eye on this flight. You can see a helicopter engineer with my navigation cameras.
Mars helicopter is a high risk, high technology proof. If Ingenuity faced difficulties during its 30-Mart (Martian day) mission, it would not affect NASA's persistence of the Mars Rover mission's science gathering.
Why is it special?
Let me tell you that in the world, never before has a helicopter flown on a planet other than Earth. At the same time, flying from the surface of Mars means flying at an altitude of 30,000 meters on Earth. This will be a historic achievement.
At the same time, let us know that the helicopter engineer on the surface of this rocky planet will collect information hereby flying for about 30 days. These thirty days will be according to Mars. During the flight, Ingenuity will also get the full support of Mars Rover. From clicking the image, it will also work to collect data from the atmosphere there and will send the information collected from it to the control room of NASA.
