In a statement made by NASA, it was stated that the flight of the mini helicopter took 108 seconds, and it was flying at an altitude of about 10 meters.
The reconnaissance vessel Perseverance sent to Mars and its mini helicopter Ingenuity
The mini helicopter Ingenuity, sent with Perseverance, made history as “the first aircraft to be flown on another planet” with its first successful flight of about 1 minute on April 19th.
Ingenuity, which carried out a total of 4 flights and weighed approximately 1.5 kilograms, stayed in the air for about 2 minutes at an altitude of 5 to 6 meters from Perseverance on each flight and sent the images taken with the color camera on it.
Because the density of the atmosphere on Mars is about 1 percent that of Earth, NASA engineers used ultra-light materials to lift the Ingenuity off the ground, and 4 propellers, each 123 centimeters long, spinning faster than required on Earth.
???? New sounds from Mars: Our @NASAPersevere rover caught the beats coming from our Ingenuity #MarsHelicopter! This marks the first time a spacecraft on another planet has recorded the sounds of a separate spacecraft.
