NASA flying helicopter to Mars using remote control

NASA's Mars Helicopter

"The idea of a helicopter flying over the surface of another planet is exciting", said Nasa boss Jim Bridenstine at the launch.

As according to Nasa, it weighs about four pounds (1.8 kilograms), with a fuselage the size of a softball, its blades will spin at nearly 3,000 rpm, roughly 10 times the rate employed by helicopters on Earth. The helicopter will certainly try to fly with the Martian air to see if cars could also rise on Mars, where the ambience is 100 times thinner compared to that of Planet. The robot will give scientists a bird's eye view of the surface of the red planet. The flying vehicle looks like a hybrid of a helicopter and a drone.

The remote-controlled Mars Helicopter, created to take flight in the thin Martian atmosphere with twin counter-rotating blades, weighs about four pounds (1.8 kilograms), with a fuselage the size of a softball, NASA said.

Once on the surface, the six-wheeled rover will deploy the small chopper in a suitable location, allowing it to charge its batteries and run through a variety of pre-flight tests before making history in the thin Martin atmosphere. If successful, this will be the first use of the aircraft on a different planet, reports the online edition of the Chronicle.info with reference to the Correspondent.

The helicopter is meant to show the viability and usefulness of aircraft on Mars, NASA explained, together with potential roles because of low-flying scout or to attain areas inaccessible out of the floor.

Double screw Mars Helicopter is able to rotate at a speed 10 times the speed of the earth's helicopters.

"To make it fly at that low atmospheric density, we had to scrutinise everything, make it as light as possible while being as strong and as powerful as it can possibly be", Ms Aung added. "The Mars Helicopter holds much guarantee for our future scientific research, exploration, as well as expedition objectives to Mars". Then it will take its very first autonomous flight in Mars and make history.

Mars 2020 is scheduled now to launch sometime in July 2020 with a landing slated for February 2021. This would be a 30-day test period that will include up to five flights.
