NASA Plans To Develop Robot-Bees To Explore The Red Planet Mars: Hello, Everyone Today I am going to share some exciting facts on the NASA plans to develop robot-bees to explore the red planet Mars.
NASA Plans To Develop Robot-Bees To Explore The Red Planet Mars
The US space agency NASA is planning to develop robotic bees with giant wings, wireless comms and sensors that can be sent to explore Mars. The Marsbees will fly out from a mobile base – probably a rover like Curiosity – map terrain, take samples and search for signs of life on the red planet.
‘Marsee’ is among the 25 early-stage technology proposals selected by NASA that have potential to transform future human and robotic exploring missions, introduce new exploration capabilities, and significantly improve current approaches to building and operating aerospace systems
Other successful projects include Shapeshifters, Biobots, LEAVES along with several other visionary technologies.
“NASA is investing in technology concepts that including meteor effect detection, space telescope swarms, and small orbital debris mapping technologies that one day using for future space exploration missions,” the agency said in a statement.
The 2018 NASA Innovative Advanced Concepts (NIAC) Phase I concepts cover a wide range of innovations selected for their potential to revolutionise future space exploration. Phase I awards are valued at approximately $125,000, over nine months, to support initial definition and analysis of their concepts. If these necessary feasibility studies are successful, awardees were applying Phase 2nd.
“The NIAC program gives NASA the opportunity to explore visionary ideas that could transform future NASA missions through creating radically better or entirely new concepts engage.
America’s innovators and entrepreneurs partners in the journey” says acting associate administrator of NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate. “The concepts then evaluating for potential inclusion into our early-stage technology portfolio.”
Nasa test launches supersonic parachute for future Mars missions
In unrelated news, the space agency recently tested a supersonic parachute that will help NASA missions to land on Mars. The chute was successfully launching into the sky during a critical test designed to mimic the conditions of entering the red planet.
The Advanced Supersonic Parachute Inflation Research Experiment (ASPIRE) was launched aboard a sounding rocket on March 31 from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in the US.
Analysis of the recovered chute and data gathered by the cameras and other instruments will help researchers complete the design of the parachute for NASA’s 2020 Mars rover.
The Mars rover is scheduled to launch in two years, in a mission to for signs of ancient life on the Red Planet.
The six-wheel vehicle, the body, is slowly on NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover study rocks site and cache samples for eventual return to Earth.
So, these points are describing the NASA plans to develop robot-bees to explore the red planet Mars.
