The helicopter is the result of four years of testing and redesigning a standard helicopter to shrink it down to an object that weighs a little less than four pounds. NASA sending satellites named after Pixar's WALL-E and EVE to MarsThe craft weighs less than 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms), has a fuselage about the size of a softball and twin, counter-rotating blades that will spin at nearly 3,000 rpm - a necessity in the thin martian atmosphere.

Designers at JPL have actually been functioning to obtain the weight and also form of the helicopter ideal, to make sure that it could fly via the slim Mars air. And it won't be able to go very high.

"To make it fly at that low atmospheric density, we had to scrutinise everything, make it as light as possible while being as strong and as powerful as it can possibly be", Ms Aung added. The helicopter will have solar cells to charge its lithium-ion batteries and a heating mechanism to keep it warm during frigid nights. Below you'll see a rendered demonstration of what this helicopter-based bit of action might look like on the red planet.

Mars 2020 is scheduled for launch in 2020 in the month of July.

NASA officials explained the rotorcraft will hit the Red Earth's surface connected with the car-sized rover.

After the helicopter is placed on the ground the rover will be directed to drive to a safe distance to relay commands.

But JPL has made sure that the Mars Helicopter has everything it needs to fearless the rough environment on the Red Planet.

Named simply the Mars Helicopter, this miniature unmanned aircraft that resembles a drone began its development in August 2013 at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

NASA introduced today that it will certainly be sending out a tiny independent flying chopper- appropriately called the Mars Helicopter- with the upcoming Mars 2020 wanderer. "The Mars Helicopter holds much promise for our future science, discovery, and exploration missions to Mars".

Nasa is working toward a future when humans will walk on the surface of Mars.

He added, though, that Mars 2020 has worked to accommodate the helicopter, and was not concerned about any technical risk to the mission from it. "We already have great views of Mars from the surface as well as from orbit".

The primary goal of the Mars 2020 rover is to investigate a to-be-determined ancient environment on Mars that could have hosted past or present-day bacterial life.

Through this machine, the scientists hope to get some unparalleled bird's eye views of Mars.

The Mars 2020 vagabond is slated to introduce in addition to an Atlas V rocket, made by the United Release Partnership, from Cape Canaveral, Florida in July 2020.
