NASA unveils the first audio recording of the "Ingenuity" helicopter on the surface of Mars
The US Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) revealed the first audio recording from one of its "Ingenuity" helicopters' flights on Mars on Friday.
"NASA" reported that the Perseverance probe, which landed on Mars in February, with the small helicopter on board, recorded the sound with a microphone on the fourth flight of "Ingenuity" at the end of 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, covered a distance of 472 million kilometers on a 203-day journey to reach the Red Planet.
The construction and development of the probe took eight years and cost about 2.5 billion dollars.
Perseverance's mission is to search for traces of microbial life on Mars and study the climate and geology of the planet.
