US space agency NASA’s helicopter on the surface of Mars Ingenuity Landed With this, it has become the first rotorcraft to land on the planet of another planet. The need for rotorcraft on Mars is because the unseen-unknown surface there is extremely bumpy, where neither the orbiter can see nor the rover can go. In such a situation, a rotorcraft is needed that can fly to difficult places and take high-definition pictures.
According to NASA, 90% of the mission would be successful if the helicopter was able to take off and travel some distance during the experimental flight. If it continues to work even after landing successfully, four more flights will be tested. This is the test being done for the first time, so scientists are very excited about it and are hoping to learn something new every moment.
On Mars, temperatures can fall to 130 degrees F and after experiencing it the first night, the next day the team will see how Ingenuity performed. Not only will it be seen whether the helicopter is running, but its solar panel will check the condition and charge of the battery and these parameters will be tested only for the next few days. After completing this step, its rotor blades will be unlocked and its motor and sensors tested.
