Mars Helicopter Prepares for Takeoff (Mission Trailer)
Beginning April 2021, the window opens for the first flight of NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter. It will be history’s first attempt at powered, controlled flight on another planet. Ingenuity arrived at Mars on February 18, 2021, riding along with NASA’s Perseverance rover. Before it attempts takeoff, the Mars Helicopter must first survive the arduous journey to Mars – from the turbulent liftoff to the harrowing landing – as well as dangerously cold nights where it must maintain power to keep itself warm enough to operate. The duration of Ingenuity’s mission is 30 days, where one or more test flights will be attempted. As a technology demonstration, Ingenuity is testing a new capability for the first time: showing controlled flight is possible in the very thin Martian atmosphere. If successful, Ingenuity could lead to an aerial dimension to space exploration, aiding both robots and humans in the future.

The Search for Life on Mars with Perseverance
How will the Perseverance rover help us find life beyond Earth? Perseverance audio: https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/multimedia/audio/
Raw images: https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/multimedia/raw-images/ NASA, together with its partners, has landed a new robotic rover on Mars. Perseverance’s safe landing is just the beginning of an ambitious effort to find past or even existing life on the Red Planet. Perseverance carries scientific instruments such as cameras and lasers. Some instruments can analyze the chemical makeup of Martian rocks and identify potential signatures of fossilized microbial life that may have existed in the Jezero crater, an area once flooded with water and home to an ancient river delta. Several rovers have landed on Mars since the 1990s. What do we expect for this new $2.7 billion robotic explorer? How will Perseverance search for complex carbon-based molecules, remnants of past microbes? What can we expect from the experimental helicopter called Ingenuity? Will Perseverance find irrefutable proof of the existence of past or present life on Mars? To answer these questions, we invited two scientists whose research and work are directly related to the study of Mars using robotic missions and who are involved with the rover or one of its instruments. Elena Amador-French is a science systems engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) and a Science Operation Coordinator for the Curiosity rover. Pablo Sobron is a planetary astronomer at SETI Institute and an expert on Raman spectroscopy, a technique used to detect organics on Mars. Janice Bishop, a chemist and planetary scientist at the SETI Institute who has explored the planet Mars for more than 20 years, will moderate this SETI Talk. Elena Amador-French has a PhD in planetary science and astrobiology from the University of Washington. She is now a science systems engineer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, working as a Science Operations Coordinator for the Curiosity rover in Gale crate. She interfaces daily with the science team and the JPL engineering team to make sure science priorities are maintained as the plan is uplinked each day. As a postdoc at CalTech from 2017 to 2019, she was involved with the landing site selection for Perseverance rover. She was also a 2008 SETI REU intern with Dr. Janice Bishop! Pablo Sobron is a research scientist at the SETI Institute who develops sensing technologies in robotic Earth and planetary exploration that include the Curiosity, Perseverance, and Rosalind Franklin rover missions. Pablo founded Impossible Sensing in 2016 to promote technology transfer activities among NASA, other federal departments/agencies, research institutions, and industry at all technology readiness levels.

Mars Perseverance Rover: Strange Objects Around the Landing Site

FACEBOOK ➜ https://www.facebook.com/astrobyte
TWITTER ➜ https://www.twitter.com/astrobytez This image is stitched together from 79 individual images, this Mastcam-Z right-eye 110-mm zoom mosaic is from the camera's first high-resolution panorama imaging sequence. These images were taken on the afternoon of Sol 4 (Feb. 22, 2021) of the mission; a sol is a Martian day. The camera was commanded to take these images by scanning the mast, or "head," a full 360-degrees around the horizon visible from the landing site. The top of some of the distant crater rim is cut off in some images to ensure the images would cover the front ridge of the Jezero Crater's ancient delta, which is only about 1.25 miles (2 kilometers) away from the rover in the center of this panorama. At that distance and focal length, Mastcam-Z can resolve features as small as about 50 centimeters (1.6 feet) across along the front of the delta. A key objective for Perseverance's mission on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will characterize the planet's geology and past climate, pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith (broken rock and dust).
