NASA shares a video about Ingenuity Mars Helicopter doing a record

 The NASA video shows the Ingenuity Mars helicopter finishing its record-breaking 25th flight where it covered a distance of 704 meters at a speed of 5.5 meters each second,


NASA has distributed sensational film of the Ingenuity Mars helicopter finishing its record-breaking 25th flight where the helicopter covered a distance of 704 meters at a speed of 5.5 meters each second, denoting the rotorcraft's longest and quickest trip to date. The video was taken on April 8 during the flight yet was just delivered by the space office on May 27.


Inventiveness is a little sun based controlled helicopter that arrived on the outer layer of Mars on February 18, 2021, alongside the Perseverance Rover. It finished the world's initially fueled extraterrestrial trip on April 19 when it took off, floated and arrived for a flight span of 39.1 seconds.

During #MarsHelicopter's 25th flight, it flew 2,310 ft (704 m) at a speed of 12 mph (5.5 m/s), breaking its own distance and groundspeed records on another planet. Symbolism as of late downlinked shows Ingenuity's perspective. https://t.co/NU5d6wGSdE pic.twitter.com/IqgkEmR04W

"For our record-breaking flight, Ingenuity's descending looking route camera furnished us with a stunning feeling of what it would want to skim 33 feet over the outer layer of Mars at 12 miles each hour," said Ingenuity leader Teddy Tzanetos of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, in a press proclamation.


The video cut begins around one second into the flight. The rotorcraft arrives at a height of 10 meters and travels southwest, speeding up to its most extreme speed in under three seconds. It initially flew over a gathering of sand waves and some stone fields. Towards the end, a level and featureless landscape shows up, giving a decent landing spot to Ingenuity. The around 162 seconds in length flight film was accelerated multiple times, decreasing the video's length to under 35 seconds.


The rotorcraft's route camera has been customized to deactivate at whatever point the rotorcraft is inside 1 meter of the surface. This is to guarantee that any residue kicked up during departure and landing doesn't disrupt the route framework as it tracks geological elements on the ground.


Recently, NASA had reported that it had quickly lost contact with the helicopter after it entered a low-power state. It later reached out in the wake of getting satisfactory energy from its sun based cluster; assisting it with charging its six lithium-particle batteries.
