Space is the expanse that exists beyond the Earth and celestial bodies. In space, there is no appreciable air to breathe and no blue sky because oxygen molecules are not in enough abundance to make the sky blue. The sound cannot be carried in space because molecules are not close enough to each other to transmit sound waves between them. No one knows exactly how big space is.
NASA's Ingenuity Mars helicopter touched the surface of the Red Planet after being dropped off from the Perseverance rover. A little more than a week is left before the first flight of the helicopter.
It is noted that black and white images were taken at an altitude of 330 to 350 km above the surface of Mars. The pictures clearly show craters, mountain ranges, and dunes of the fourth planet from the Sun.
Thanks to the rover's first Martian drive, NASA engineers were able to make sure that Perseverance was indeed capable of covering 200 meters a day in the next two years to collect samples of Martian soil.
The head of SpaceX, Elon Musk, announced that Maezawa would be the first tourist to fly to the Moon back in 2018. A total of 10 or 12 people will take part in the mission, eight of whom will be personally invited by Yusaku Maezawa.
Enthusiasts say that the phrase "Dare Mighty Things," the motto of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, was encrypted on a parachute in the form of a pattern that can be translated into letters using a binary code.
SpaceX will send the first person with a prosthetic body part into space as part of the world's first all-civilian space mission. Hayley Arceneaux will also be joined by two contest winners and Jared Isaacman, the billionaire who is funding the mission.
The footage captures all stages of the rover's descent and landing, from the moment the parachute deploys in the atmosphere of Mars to the separation of the descent stage after Perseverance touched down on the planet's surface.
