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...

DuAxel, the “two-in-one” rover for unreachable terrain | Digital Trends Spanish

A “two-in-one” rover that can reach the most difficult terrain, such as the so-called “recurring slope lines” of Mars. So is DuAxel, a prototype unveiled in October 2020 by NASA. According to American space agency, DuAxel (an abbreviation for "dual-Axel") is actually a vehicle made up of two two-wheeled rovers, each named Axel. With the rear half anchored in place, the front half disengages and rolls on a single axle, he noted. Xakata. The two halves are connected by a strap that unwinds when the main shaft and rappels down a slope or other complex terrain. That's when he uses instruments stored inside the wheel to study a location that would otherwise be out of reach of a traditional rover. The vehicle was tested in the Mojave Desert in Southern California by a team of engineers ...

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...
