НАСА почтила Инженюити. Инженеры миссии “перемешают” сломанные лопасти марсианского вертолета, чтобы проанализировать повреждения

Laboratory team will soon attempt to “stir” the blades of the helicopter to analyze the extent of the damage.

The livestream event featured a discussion about the unexpected outcome of Ingenuity’s sixth flight on Mars, which took place on May 22. The helicopter experienced a hard landing, causing the blades to suffer significant damage. Engineers are now working on a plan to safely rotate the blades in order to assess the extent of the damage and determine the best course of action for the helicopter.

Despite the setback, NASA expressed its commitment to continue pushing the boundaries of exploration on Mars. Ingenuity has already achieved several milestones, including making the first controlled flight on another planet. The helicopter is a part of the Perseverance rover mission, which aims to search for signs of past life on Mars and collect samples for eventual return to Earth.

The mission leaders expressed their gratitude for the outpouring of support from people around the world and emphasized the valuable data that has already been gathered from Ingenuity’s flights. The livestream event concluded with a message of hope and determination as the team works to overcome the challenges presented by the unexpected damage. NASA and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory will continue to provide updates on the status of Ingenuity and the next steps in the mission to explore the red planet.
