NASA rover ‘Perseverance’ was successful in the first test drive on Mars. The robot flew for 33 minutes on Thursday (March 4). The US space agency NASA said on Friday. The agency called it a unique milestone in the Mars mission.
Anise Zarifian, a mobility test bed engineer from Perseverance, was naturally overwhelmed by the success of the robotic vehicle. “This is just the beginning,” he said from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. We will do a longer test drive.
“Our test drive has been great,” Anais wrote on NASA’s Twitter handle after the successful journey of ‘Perseverance’. As you can see, we have left the wheel marks on the ground of Mars. I have seen wheel stains many times. But I don’t think I’ve ever been so happy.
NASA scientists say the six-wheeled robotic spacecraft orbited the Red Planet’s 21.3-foot area on Thursday. How was his journey? According to NASA, at first it went 13.12 feet and turned 150 degrees to the left.
Then it came back 6.2 feet. For the first time, NASA is exploring the possibility of the robotic spacecraft traversing a longer distance on Mars in the future, even if it orbits a little over 21 feet experimentally. If all goes well, ‘Perseverance’ will plow the soil of the red planet on Saturday as well.
The 1-day period from Earth to Mars is slightly longer. According to NASA, according to the 1 day time on Mars, the robotic spacecraft can orbit 200 meters per day. Perseverance is ahead of NASA’s rover Curiosity in efficiency.
‘Perseverance’ can move 5 times faster than Curiosity, NASA said. 6 years after setting foot on Mars, ‘Curiosity’ is still working.
