First Video of NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter in Flight, Includes Takeoff and Landing (High-Res)

2,5 milj. näkymät445

    In this video captured by NASA’s Perseverance rover, the agency's Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took the first powered, controlled flight on another planet on April 19, 2021.
    The rover was parked at “Van Zyl Overlook,” about 211 feet (64.3 meters) away in Mars' Jezero Crater and chronicled the flight operations with its cameras.
    These images from the rover’s Mastcam-Z cameras show the helicopter hovering above the Red Planet's surface. During this first flight, the helicopter climbed to an altitude of 10 feet (3 meters), hovered, and then touched back down on the surface of Mars.

    Ingenuity is a technology demonstration. The 4-pound (1.8-kilogram) rotorcraft will help determine whether future explorations on Mars could include an aerial perspective.
    Perseverance touched down at "Octavia E. Butler Landing" with Ingenuity attached to its belly on Feb. 18, 2021. The helicopter was deployed to the surface on April 3.

      We did that. We are greater than we imagine and capable of such wonders as to make God weep with joy.

      K Looks more like Arizona to me. Are we sure of what we are seeing or do you believe what they tell you? Lots of money and resources up in space and people starving all over the world down here. Seems like we should get our priorities in order before wasting our hard earned tax money.

        @Ptao Tom And what does planting matter? XD

        can grow seeds..ive seen videos rover and helicopter deployed on mars why nasa didnt try planting. they study the environment maybe and other planet. on the other youtube

    35. bebe boyTV

      why not try to plant seeds there a 3 or 5 seeds with different type either and a small machine that water it and plant.. maybe that can easily find answer if air and land on mars can grow seeds..ive seen videos rover and helicopter deployed on mars why nasa didnt try planting. they study the environment maybe and other planet. on the other youtube channel someone reply with this and he replied "because that would be a gross of contaminating another world" that what he replied and i replied.. --= so you mean nasa just want to search and explore, etc. ect. its already contaminated with ohter metals and other debris from ships so why not try to plant...

      Where is the dust that it is suppose to lift from the Helicopter on the ground?

    40. Wolfgang Mahringer

      I find it interesting that there is absolutely no signs of dust when the copter took off...

      1. Wolfgang Mahringer

        @Stinkeye Jones Now we all know you're an idiot. Here's the quote from NASA: mars.nasa.gov/technology/helicopter/#Tech-Specs It clearly states "Total length of rotors: ~4 feet (~1.2 meters) tip to tip". So it is a diameter, NOT a single rotor blade length. Questions?

      2. Stinkeye Jones

        @Wolfgang Mahringer Really? You're quoting from wiki, whereas I am quoting direct from mission specialists. Go home, do your homework again.

      3. Malgeumi

        Dust is not the same consistency as flour. Try buying a drone. Smh.

      4. Wolfgang Mahringer

        @Stinkeye Jones The 4 feet is the diameter, so one blade is 2 feet long. See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingenuity_(helicopter)

      That photo didn't come from Mars this is in the Nevada desert about 10 miles from home.🤣😭

      1. Malgeumi

        @Tony Williams Where is this on Nevada? Why don't you take the rover? Go ahead and take the rover then, no one will stop you. Take the rover and sell it. The money should be enough to cover the plane and the press.

        @Tony Williams If it's 10 miles from where you live, why don't you just take a picture of it? You seem to know exactly where the place is. Should be pretty easy for you to expose NASA, right?

        @Tony Williams That's like asking me to build a skyscraper to prove they're real. I can't go to Mars, and I can't build a skyscraper - this doesn't mean those things don't exist.

      The way it took off tells me the ascending was effortless and fast, this is hard to achieve in an atmosphere 1 % as dense as ours. And yes I know how many rpm and bla bla

    75. JaydoDre

      The whole time I was expecting this thing going belly up and straight into the ground like in hundreds of drone fail videos on the internet.

    76. Phil Blum

      Woohoo!!!

    77. MightyMouseGaming

      If you guys can control it well You can try to clean the dust from the rover by the helicopter So it won't die

      1. logitech4873

        Why would the rover die from dust?

    78. TheLifeOnHigh

      Can someone explain what this mission accomplished in terms of scientific knowledge or new information? What have we learned about Mars that we didn’t know before this landing and short flight of the drone?

      1. TheLifeOnHigh

        @David Gregory -thanks for taking a stab at enlightening me. That’s a huge accomplishment indeed. But as this technology has shown us, it will be robots controlled by artificial intelligence who’ll be the real sojourners of space exploration. We don’t need to send humans out there to collect rocks and measure atmospheric data. Since posting my question, I’ve been to NASA’s website and took an interest in Jupiter. What a mysterious planet! I’ve learned that 1,300 Earths could fit inside of Jupiter. And despite that anecdotal data that suggests it’s a Gas Giant, scientists are still uncertain about Jupiter’s core. I wish I could be alive 100 years from now just to see the secrets of Jupiter revealed. Anyhoo, I’m babbling again so laterz....

      2. David Gregory

        Do you not read any news at all? Already Perseverance has successfully harvested oxygen from the Martian CO2 based atmosphere, and demonstrated that a self-sufficient human expedition to Mars is possible. As usual, the offshoot of this of course, is that the technology for producing O2 from CO2 in small, power efficient machines moves forward, which has many applications here on earth. Do you not think that how this device is actually powered is of no significance for solving a whole bunch of electric vehicle issues we're having here on earth? ..oh... and of course.... do you not think for one second that working out how to get a helicopter to fly in an environment with such little atmosphere has no real world application to rotor blade design for regular helicopters making them more efficient, quieter and more effective? Space exploration is a series of solving problems, and more often than not, solving those problems opens up access to technologies that have manifold real world applications that not only make YOUR life better, but actually save lives too. You're an idiot for even asking this question. I was going to link you to a list of things that have enriched and improved lives here on earth as a result of space exploration, but it wouldn't actually be difficult for you to go and find out yourself. Maybe you'll get a liking for actually researching things instead of waiting to be spoon-fed information.
