U.S. The rover diligently sends the first audio recordings from the surface of the red planet / a mini helicopter will take off soon.
US space agency NASA has released spectacular video images of the rover’s diligent landing on Mars and the first sound recordings from the surface of the red planet. NASA says no such recordings have been made before. “These videos are amazing,” NASA manager Mike Watkins said. “We’ve all seen it many, many times over the weekend.”
Video recordings that have already been clicked a million times show the last eleven kilometers of perseverance (roughly translated into German: tolerance). For example, you can see how the parachute opens. The surface of the planet where the rover will then land is also visible.
The microphones on the rover did not transmit any data from the landing – but then sent the first sound recordings from the surface of Mars. You can hear something on them that sounds like air gas. New photos were also released.
“Now that you’ve seen Mars, listen to it. Grab a pair of headphones and hear the first sounds that one of my microphones captures,” Rover, affectionately known as Percy, said on Twitter. “We now have a front-line view of what we call ‘seven-minute terrorism’ when it lands on Mars,” NASA manager Watkins said. This marks the time when the spacecraft must use one parachute to sharply brake the spacecraft with the other to set the rover safely on a neighboring planet on Earth.
Earlier, the small ingenious helicopter that flew to Mars on a rover sent its first level report to the control center in Pasadena, California. According to NASA experts, this seems to be “working properly”. Ingenuity (German:: கூ्ा) is still attached to the base of diligence, where it is currently charged. In 30 to 60 days, the mini helicopter will explore Mars from a bird’s eye view. This will be the first flight of a spacecraft on another planet.
The rover, which weighs about 1,000 kilograms and weighs about the size of a small car, landed on Thursday – after 203 days of flight and 472 million kilometers – with a dangerous maneuver on the dry lake of Jessero Greater on Mars. Over the next two years the former lake, about 45 kilometers in diameter, will be diligently explored.
The rover took eight years to build and build, equivalent to 2. 2.2 billion. He must search for traces of previous microbial life on Mars and study the planet’s climate and geography. Perseverance is the fifth rover that NASA brought to Mars – Curiosity last arrived there in 2012. However, overall, even half of the globally launched Mars have not yet been successful.
