Perseverance Captures a Unique Rock Formation on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

Right now, NASA has two vehicles exploring the surface of Mars. These are the Perseverance rover and the Ingenuity helicopter, which arrived on the Red Planet on a special mission in February. Perseverance, whose goal is to find traces of microbial life on the planet, captured images of a rare rock formation in an ancient lake bed, according to information shared with NASA that published the record on the robot's official Twitter account. “Take a look at this piece of rock I found: it looks like some kind of garden cobblestone, and it's probably an exposed bedrock. Materials like this, from the early days of this ancient lake bed, can help to understand what this lake was like, ”says the description that accompanies the video. Check out this patch of rock I found: looks kind of like ...

Ingenuity surpasses its most challenging flight on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

NASA's Ingenuity helicopter has completed its ninth flight on Mars, which consisted of a high-speed trip through hostile terrain in which it flew away from the Perseverance rover. Both the scout vehicle and the helicopter are at the eastern end of a region called Séítah. The last two Ingenuity flights had been scheduled to keep pace with the rover on its journey through this territory. Rather than keep getting ahead, however, on this ninth flight, Ingenuity took a sort of shortcut through part of the Séítah region and landed on a plain to the south. Along the way, he took aerial color images of the rocks and ripples that he flew over. This was possible as the Ingenuity was built to fly 625 meters at 5 meters per second and stayed in the air for 166.4 seconds. According to the Jet Prop...

The sounds that the Chinese rover Zhurong recorded on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

The competition for space exploration on Mars is getting more and more interesting. On the one hand, there is the Perseverance rover sent by NASA. But you are not alone. In recent weeks a new protagonist has been added, it is Zhurong, the robotic vehicle of the Chinese National Space Administration (CNSA). The Asian giant has no problem showing all the satisfaction it feels towards this modern device and is constantly sharing material recorded by the same rover. Now, the CNSA has published a series of images and videos showing the landing of the vehicle on the Martian surface, something that we had not seen in the case of Perseverance. This, particularly, because the Zhurong has a remote camera, which is one of its most outstanding elements. Huge Zhurong update: Here & # 39; s full...

Perseverance has already made it halfway through its long journey to Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

The rover Perseverance NASA has logged many miles of flight since it was launched for Mars on July 30, 2020. And it recently surpassed 146.3 million miles (235.4 million kilometers), half the way before it reaches the atmosphere of Mars, on February 18, 2021. The gravitational influence of the Sun plays an important role in shaping not only the trajectories of spacecraft to Mars (as well as elsewhere in the Solar System), but also the relative motion of the two planets. In this way, Perseverance's route to follows a curved path instead of a straight one. How long does a transmission take Pot "Although we are in the middle of the route we need to travel to Mars, the rover is not halfway between the two worlds," explained scientist Julie Kangas, who works on the Perseverance rover mi...

Ingenuity prepares for first flight on Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

“The Wright brothers demonstrated that powered flight in Earth's atmosphere was possible using an experimental aircraft. Now we are trying to do the same, but on Mars. " The words were said in July by Håvard Grip, from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), who will be the main pilot of Ingenuity, the first helicopter to attempt to take flight on another planet. This Thursday, the POT reported that Ingenuity received an overhaul and recharge of its power system on August 7. The procedure was performed a week after starting the nearly seven-month trip to Mars with the Perseverance rover. This is the first time the helicopter has been powered up and its batteries have been charged in the space environment. During the operation, which took eight hours, the performance o...

How to follow the launch of the Perseverance rover to Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

After years of preparation, NASA will send another robotic scout vehicle to continue unraveling the mysteries of Mars this Thursday, July 30, 2020. Perseverance will follow in the footsteps of Curiosity and other rovers to venture beyond Earth. But it will not do it alone, but accompanied by the Ingenuity helicopter, the first vehicle to fly on another planet. Alternatives to follow the launch The launch will be broadcast live on the NASA TV, the space agency's 24-hour broadcast channel. Coverage begins Thursday, July 30 at 4 am PT / 7 am ET, with the launch scheduled for 4:50 am PT / 7:50 am ET. After the launch, there will be a press conference at 8:30 am PT / 11:30 am ET. NASA is also encouraging to use the hashtag #CountdownToMars when tweeting or posting, and even enabled sp...

Airbus will build the first spacecraft to bring cargo from Mars | Digital Trends Spanish

While much of the planet is preparing to observe the launch of the Perseverance rover to Mars on Thursday, July 30, the French Airbus is working on the construction of a spacecraft that will bring the first Martian rock samples to Earth. Once it reaches the red planet on February 18, 2021, the Perseverance will extract samples and leave them on the surface of Mars in small metal tubes. It is precisely these samples that the orbiter built by Airbus, called Earth Return Orbiter (ERO), will bring home, according to the website of the BBC. "I like to call the satellite to be built by Airbus 'the first interplanetary cargo ship.' Because that's what it will do. It is designed to carry cargo between Mars and Earth, "David Parker, director of human exploration and robotics a...
