The twin-rotor, sun oriented fueled helicopter weighs under 4 pounds; the complete length of its rotors is around 4 feet, tip to tip. Its principal object is an innovation show. After Perseverance securely arrives on Mars, the helicopter will be discharged to play out the first in a progression of flight tests that will occur during 30 Martian days (a day on Mars is around 40 minutes longer than a day on Earth).
For history’s first flight trial flight test in the dainty Martian environment (under 1% the thickness of Earth’s)
The helicopter is entrusted with floating noticeable all around a couple of feet off the ground for 20 to 30 seconds before landing. It is intended to fly all alone, without human control, utilizing insignificant orders from Earth sent ahead of time.
With the helicopter securely concealed and secured by a shield to ensure it during plummet and landing, Perseverance will contact down on the Red Planet on Feb. 18, 2023.
