The first flight of Mars’ “ingenuity” has been postponed again
He weighs less than two kilos. The small helicopter “intelligent” must have completed its “high flight” to a height of three meters on Mars. Due to a technical problem, the first method does not work.
The first helicopter flight over another planet has been postponed again.
The US space agency NASA on Monday (local time) announced a new launch date for the small helicopter “Ingenuity”, which landed on Mars next week on a rover called “Perseverance” in February. Previously, April 11 was given as the initial start date, but was later postponed to April 14 due to technical issues. NASA has announced that it is currently working on a solution to a problem with the helicopter’s computer software. The helicopter is basically ready for use and in good condition.
The 1.8-kilogram “ingenuity” (German: பு முதல் முதல் முதல் முதல்) is about to rise to an altitude of about three meters on its first test flight, orbit for thirty seconds and land on the surface of Mars again. This will be the first flight of an aircraft on another planet. The “ingenuity” of lithium-ion batteries could make several more flight attempts a month.
The helicopter must withstand extreme conditions: Mars will be cold at night up to minus 90 degrees Celsius, the planet’s gravitational pull will be low and the atmosphere will be very thin. The mini-helicopter landed in the belly of “perseverance” at the end of February – after 203 days of flight and 472 million kilometers of travel – on a dry Mars lake with a dangerous maneuver known as the “Jesero crater”. Over the next two years it took diligence to explore this lake with a diameter of about 45 kilometers.
