The United States Space Agency (NASA) will send a helicopter to Mars in July. This is according to Sindonews quoted recently. Explained by scientists at NASA continues to look for traces of the potential for life on the red planet by deploying the most advanced technology that will be used by NASA is a helicopter called Ingenuity.
The first helicopter will explore Mars is the new belle of Perseverance Rover, explorer robots designed to help scientists. NASA uses Ingenuity to test NASA technology capabilities when flying on the other side of Mars.
“I was prepared and excited to see a helicopter flying in another world,” said NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine. As scheduled, the helicopter and Perseverance Rover will glide to Mars from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, United States, on July 20, 2020. And predicted to arrive on Mars on February 18, 2021. Upon arrival, Ingenuity will part from Perseverance Rover, to undergo a different exploration task. The Ingenuity journey might not go smoothly, because this is NASA’s first project in the use of helicopters on Mars.
“We are not expecting more on Ingenuity, because we are looking for something that is the earliest and we need to learn,” explained Deputy Project Manager for the Mars 2020 mission, Matt Wallace.
If the first helicopter flight to Mars goes on a success, then NASA is the first US to mars who continue to try to find traces of life on the planet. (KRO/RD/oke/dwiputri)
