NASA’s Preserve Rover will search for traces of ancient microbial life on Mars.
The world-renowned space research organization NASA’s Preservation Rover has successfully completed a three-month period on Mars. NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter was recently seen completing its fourth flight to Mars. NASA’s rover also recorded the noise made by the helicopter’s leaves. NASA has now shared information on the next phase of the Mars mission. NASA’s Preserve Rover will search for traces of ancient microbial life on Mars.

Find evidence of life on Mars
NASA has tweeted about this. In it, NASA’s Preservation Rover will now act as a science researcher instead of taking photos of Mars. An expedition is underway to find life in such an ancient place on Mars, the tweet said. The Preservative Rover will study the geology and chemistry of Mars.
The SHERLOC device mounted on the rover will be used
NASA researchers have installed a device called Short Scanning Habitat Environment with Raman and Luminescence for Organics and Chemicals (SHERLOCK) on the Preservation Rover. This device will help to study the structure of rocks on Mars in depth. NASA has also said that the Mars mission has now really started.
The fourth flight of NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter The world famous space research organization NASA has shared a video about the Mars mission on social media. This video shows the completion of the fourth flight of NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter. NASA’s rover has also recorded the noise made by the helicopter’s leaves.
Record sound for the first time
NASA’s rover on Mars has recorded the sound of a helicopter’s leaf for the first time. NASA shared the video on social media on May 7. NASA’s Rotorcraft helicopter successfully completes its fourth flight to Mars. This video is three minutes long. At the beginning of the video, the sound comes slowly from the flight of the helicopter. The leaves of the rotorcraft rotate at a speed of 2400 rpm, so the sound produced is audible in the video.
