American space assembly NASA The First Time by Perseverance Rover Weather of mars has told. This rover, which landed in the Jjero crater of Mars, has said that the temperature here reaches minus in the night time. The Mars Enviroment Dynamic Analyzer (MEDA) system fitted in the Rover studied the temperature around it for 30 minutes at 10.25 pm on 19 February.
Temperature minus 5 degrees in 30 minutes
Data sent from Perseverance Rover showed that when the system was activated, the outside temperature was -4 Fahrenheit (-20 ° C), but in 30 minutes it dropped to -14 Fahrenheit (-25 ° C). Gone. Maida is designed with six types of environmental sensors to record dust levels and six atmospheric conditions.
Will be used for manned mission on Mars
This sensor also has the ability to measure any kind of radiation on the surface. Apart from this, preparations related to the human mission worn on Mars will also be carried out through the data obtained from this sensor. Meda’s principal investigator Jose Antonio Rodríguez Manfredi said that we had been eagerly waiting for the data since the landing of this rover. Our device landed safely and is now sending data.
Can reveal big about the weather of Mars
Jose Antonio Rodríguez Manfredi works at the Instituto National de Technica Aerospacial in Madrid at the Centro de Astrobiolia. He told that when we got the first report from Meda, that moment was the greatest moment of happiness for us. This has given us many important data for further work and planning. Our system is working and sending its first meteorological data and images from SkyCam.
The system is fitted in the arm of the rover
The Maida is fitted in the arm of the Perseverance Rover, which can be extended far and wide. It will also be taken out from time to time to check the weather further. Its weight is around five and a half kilograms. It is capable of capturing air (both speed and direction), pressure, relative humidity, air temperature, ground temperature and radiation (both from the sun and space).
The system also reported pressure on Mars
The system exits the rover itself every hour and after recording the data, saving it goes into sleep mode inside the rover. It is being told that this system can also collect data in sleep mode. Meda’s pressure sensor reported that the pressure on Mars at that time was 718 pascals, while scientists estimated at that time up to 705–735 pascals, depending on the model.
