Being over 1.8 kilograms in weight, the helicopter is a technology demonstration project that is going through a strict verification process which will prove it for Mars.
Most of the experiment going through the plane model would have to show how Mars might work, including as it is t A photograph of Mars. Nasa in a statement.
The helicopter has to work in very cold temperatures, including temperature nights as low as only 90 degrees Celsius.
The helicopter is due to reach the surface of the Red Planet in February 2021, when the shell is tightly submerged by the Mars Marsh tree.
A few months later, it is used by exam tests – the first time from another world, Nasa said.
"Getting ready for that first time on Mars, we've been able to record over 75 minutes of flying airplane with an engineering model, which was flying near our helicopter," said MiMi Aung, project manager. for Mars Helicopter at Jasa Movement Laboratory in Nasa. in the US.
"But the last test on the aircraft's model is the real activity. This is our helicopter that is going to Mars. We needed to see it's working as a sign," said Aung.
While helicopters are flying a common life here on Earth, traveling hundreds of thousands of kilometers away in the Martian air is something else completely.
Creating the right conditions for a test here on Earth gives its own challenges.
"Martian air is only about one per cent of the Earth's density," said Aung.
"There may be an environmental congestion similar to our two experimental rides on Earth – if you set up your 30,480 meter airfield, so you can't go to that place and that's You have to do it, "she said.
The team formed a shelter that could remove all nitrogen, oxygen and other gases from the air inside the main cylinder. Instead the team destroyed carbon dioxide, which is Mars's main substance.
"Helicopter being brought in so thickly," said Teddy Tzanetos, trial director for the Mars Helicopter at JPL – just part of the challenge.
"To make a real change to Mars's flight, we need to remove two-thirds of the Earth's water, because Mars's graphics are much weaker," said Tzanetos.
This team achieved a speed-pull system – with a motorized lane connected to the helicopter top to give a seamless move that equates to two-thirds of the Earth's gravel.
The first plane in Mars Helicopter was followed by a second in the empty room the next. By logging in one complete cycle of flying time at a maximum of five centimeters, over 1,500 pieces of carbon fiber, aircraft, silicon, copper, foil and foam aluminum have proven that they can work together as a continuous unit. .
"The next time we fly, we travel on Mars," said Aung.
Helicopter Mars will be launched as a technology demonstration with the Mars 2020 moving on a rocket United Launch Alliance Atlas V in July 2020 from Complex Launch Complex 41 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Florida. It is expected to arrive in Mars in February 2021.
