How NASA Engineered a Helicopter for Mars | WIRED

It's not easy designing a new helicopter, especially if that new helicopter has to survive a ride on a rocket into space. NASA's Ingenuity helicopter is the first machine aerial vehicle to fly on a planet outside Earth. Ingenuity was designed specifically to fly on Mars. So, why did NASA decide to design a helicopter specifically for Mars?

  • It kind of seems like to me there would be no reason to account for less gravity because it would just fly with more force... But then again I'm not a NASA scientist so good on them for that.

    Ryan Joseph LongRyan Joseph Long14 dager siden
    • Gravity means how much an object would weigh. How much downward force its exerting. It would've been far more challenging if the gravity of Mars was the same. The blades would have to spin much faster.

  • DEVON ISLAND . .088PSI on Mars 90%+ Co2 ...helical flight is impossible at less than 1 atmosphere. Even with lighter gravity . NASA LIES .

    ✅17 dager siden
    • @Joseph Kernan Mars .088 PSI . Laws of physics say impossible. Grab the formula, and do the math . Lift is the result of a pressure difference. Density is a variable. No pressure , no lift , regardless of rpm . Earth 14.7 psi . Helical flight is impossible on earth @ 4.481 PSI , about the height of Everest . Mars .088psi fails the lift formula , even at 38% of Earths gravity .

      ✅5 dager siden
    • @✅ Actually, propelled flight is possible in any type of atmosphere. Depending on how thick or thin the atmosphere is, it might take as little as 500 rpm to as much as 2400 rpm. But, if there's an atmosphere, that atmsophere can give lift to the heli/drone if the drone/heli blades are moving fast enough. But I do like your take on this subject. Have a good morning!

      Joseph KernanJoseph Kernan5 dager siden
    • @Joseph Kernan there's not enough air density to push against . You can spin as hard and fast as you like , without a dense enough atmosphere to push against , you're not going anywhere . Nasa lies .

    • @Joseph Kernan the lift formula disagrees with you . Go watch "drone in a vacuum " .

      ✅5 dager siden
    • But... it is. Even though the atmospheric pressure and thickness is a lot lower than on Earth, with enough prescion of roll and yaw plus really fast spinning blades, the drone would be able to fly.

      David BoucherDavid Boucher6 dager siden
    • The real reason they have to wear suits is because they don't want to contaminate the drone/probe with meterial that could damage the eletrical box in the center. But, the most importannt reason is because they don't want to contaminate Perseverance itself. Perseverance's main mission is to find life on mars. But if a bit of dead skin or water get's within it' sensor, it could contaminate the rover's life-finding parts.

      Joseph KernanJoseph Kernan6 dager siden
    • @The Junior NOcdsr Rather so they don't contaminate the probe with dust, water droplets or whatever else might damage sensitive parts. It's standard procedure for building regular satellites too.

You watch sci-fi movies and TV and you see high-end designs with sleek curves, clean white shells... like you'd expect a new iPhone to look like. But in reality, Ingenuity is basically a box made of gold foil with 2 carbon fiber rotors, 4 kickstand legs, and a small solar panel with a tiny antenna for comms.

Then, in a decade, a new rocket will go to perseverance, take the samples, and come back to earth. Then, some biologists and geologists will see if there is any life in the samples. The mission is mroe complicated then that but... that's the whole mission summed up.

    • It’s BOTH. It is remote controlled which makes it a drone. But drones turn by adjusting the speed of the rotors. To turn left, they would make the left rotor slower and the right one faster. Helicopters actually rotate the blades, and that’s what Ingenuity does. Therefore, it is BOTH. You would know this if you actually did research first before shouting about how NASA is lying to us all in the comments section.

  • Why is it that people post the stupidest comments to the smartest videos? Is there some sort of cosmic intellectual balance that must be maintained? I can't imagine the opinions NASA engineers have of the general population. Honestly if they decide to just wholesale slaughter us, we really need to just accept it and let them.
