NASA’s helicopter engine could take off on Monday if all goes well on Mars. This helicopter is facing extreme cold on Mars. “If our plan is successful, this historic flight could be carried out on Monday. This will be the first flight out of Earth,” NASA said in a statement. Which is being watched by people all over the world. The flight was originally scheduled to take off on April 11, but was canceled due to a technical glitch.
The flight will be streamed live on NASA’s official website
NASA has said that it is not immediately clear whether the rover-like helicopter mission was successful or unsuccessful. The data associated with it will be available to the California team. The flight can be viewed live on the NASA website. The team monitoring the helicopter has also updated its software. On April 16 the helicopter passed the rapid spin test. Which is disclosed after the data is received. So now he has to fly from the earth without any help.
If the flight is successful, 4 flights will be further tested
Ingenity’s condition is fine. Its energy communication system is also working properly. If the helicopter succeeds in taking off and flying a short distance, the mission will be considered 90% successful. If its landing is successful and it still works properly, four more flights will be tested. This is the first test performed.
Why the need for this helicopter?
It is needed on Mars because there is a very rough surface. An orbiter orbiting Mars can see clearly only up to a limit from its height. It is possible to reach every corner of the surface from the rover. There is a great need for helicopters.
