NASA create robopons to study Mars

Before you equip a full-fledged mission to Mars, the dream of many fans of space travel, you need to conduct on-site reconnaissance. With this quite well on numerous intelligence apparatus, but the American space Agency NASA is planning to use for the aforesaid purposes something more interesting. Namely, unusual robots bees, which the developers called "marcopoli".

As reported by one of the representatives of NASA, Chang-Kwon Kang, they developed robots are going to be earth bumblebees, and they, according to the draft, will be able to fly on wings like a Cicada. Delivered "marcopoli" on the Red planet with one of the Rovers, which will be recharged during a mission. Wingspan of five inches will allow the robots not just to fly to remote places, but also to hang in the air to fix the environment. On the robots are installed with various sensors to analyze the atmosphere, soil, as well as photo or video. "Marcopoli" will load information into the Rover, and that, in turn, will forward them to the Earth.

In his research NASA employees will cooperate with the leading Japanese engineers with experience in the creation of miniature ground robots. Joint efforts experts want to ensure that the design of the robots was the most simple and at the same time reliable. In fact, the desire to create a "marcopol" there is no accident. The fact that the pressure in the atmosphere of Mars several tens of times smaller than the earth, so large aircraft like drones and small aircraft will be poorly adapted to the conditions of the red planet. And the smaller the aircraft, the more confident he will feel during the flight.
