The US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) revealed the first audio recording from one of its “Ingenuity” helicopters’ flights on the surface of Mars, the day before yesterday.
“NASA” reported that the Perseverance probe, which landed on Mars last February, with the small helicopter on board, recorded the sound with a microphone on the fourth flight of “Ingenuity”, at the end of last April.
This is the first audio recording of a trip on the surface of Mars, and the first recording made by a spacecraft of another separate spacecraft on another planet.
The Perseverance probe, which weighs about 1,000 kilograms and is the size of a small car, traveled 472 million kilometers on a 203-day journey to reach the Red Planet.
The probe took eight years to build and develop, and cost about $ 2.5 billion. The mission of “Perseverance” is to search for the effects of microbial life on Mars, and to study the climate and geology of the planet.
