A video has been released by the United States Spanish agency. That’s right, because the POT disclosed the images captured by his rover Perseverance, performing tasks no less than on the planet Mars.
The footage shows the 13th Ingenuity Mars flight held on September 4. The video, according to the agency, provide “the most detailed view so far“of the aircraft in action on the red planet.
This two-minute flight was one of the most difficult, as “it involved flying over varied terrain within the ‘Séítah’ geological feature and imaging an outcrop from multiple angles for the rover team,” NASA illustrated.
The Ingenuity weighs just 1.8 kilograms and was filmed “by the explorer’s two-camera Mastcam-Z and it can be seen in two videos. One highlights the majority of your flight profile, while the other provides a close-up of takeoff and landing, “adds Rt.
The videos show how the Ingenuity maintains altitude during flight, further showing that after his initial ascent to 8 meters is able to detect a change in terrain elevation and adjust your flight automatically. On the way, Ingenuity collected ten images “of the rocky outcrop with its color camera before returning to the frame and landing again at the target location,” NASA says.
And the agency closes: “In addition, the images obtained with the helicopter in September are complemented with those that were collected during flight number 12, providing valuable information for the Perseverance scientists and the drivers of scout vehicles.”
