Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechWith the launch period of NASA’s Mars 2020 Perseverance rover opening in 14 weeks, final preparations of the spacecraft continue at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida. In the past week, the assembly, test and launch operations team completed important milestones, fueling the descent stage – also known as the sky crane – and attaching the Mars Helicopter, which will be the first aircraft in history to attempt power-controlled flight on another planet.The Mars Helicopter, visible in lower center of the image, was attached to the belly of NASA’s Perseverance rover at Kennedy Space Center on April 6, 2020. The helicopter will be deployed onto the Martian surface about two-and-a-half months after Perseverance lands. Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechOver the weekend, 884 pounds (401 kilograms) of hydrazine monopropellant were loaded into the descent stage’s four fuel tanks. As the aeroshell containing the descent stage and rover enter the Martian atmosphere on Feb. 18, 2021, the propellant will be pressure-fed through 120 feet (37 meters) of stainless steel and titanium tubing into eight Mars landing engines. The engines’ job: to slow the spacecraft, which will be traveling at about 180 mph (80 meters per second) when it’s 7,200 feet (2,200 meters) in altitude, to 1.7 mph (0.75 meters per second) by the time it’s about 66 feet (20 meters) above the surface.Maintaining this rate of descent, the stage will then perform the sky crane maneuver: Nylon cords spool out to lower the rover 25 feet (7.6 meters) below the descent stage; When the spacecraft senses touchdown at Jezero Crater, the connecting cords are severed and the descent stage flies off.“The last hundred days before any Mars launch is chock-full of significant milestones,” said David Gruel, the Mars 2020 assembly, test and launch operations manager at JPL. “Fueling the descent stage is a big step. While we will continue to test and evaluate its performance as we move forward with launch preparations, it is now ready to fulfill its mission of placing Perseverance on the surface on Mars.”The HelicopterAfter the descent stage fueling, the system that will deliver the Mars Helicopter to the surface of the Red Planet was integrated with Perseverance. The helicopter, which weighs 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms) and features propellers 4 feet (1.2 meters) in diameter, is cocooned within the delivery system. In one of the first steps in the day-long process on April 6, technicians and engineers made 34 electrical connections between the rover, the helicopter and its delivery system on the rover’s belly. After confirming data and commands could be sent and received, they attached the delivery system to the rover.Finally, the team confirmed the helicopter could receive an electrical charge from the rover. Before being deployed onto the surface of Jezero Crater, the Mars Helicopter will rely on the rover for power. Afterward, it will generate its own electrical power through a solar panel located above its twin counter-rotating propellers.The helicopter will remain encapsulated on the rover’s belly for the next year and will be deployed around the beginning of May – roughly two-and-a-half months after Perseverance’s landing. Once the rover drives about 330 feet (100 meters) away and the helicopter undergoes an extensive systems check, it will execute a flight-test campaign for up to 30 days.The Perseverance rover is a robotic scientist weighing 2,260 pounds (1,025 kilograms). It will search for signs of past microbial life, characterize the planet’s climate and geology, collect samples for future return to Earth and pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet. No matter what day Perseverance launches during its July 17-Aug. 5 launch period, it will land on Mars’ Jezero Crater on Feb. 18, 2021.The Mars 2020 Perseverance rover mission is part of a larger program that includes missions to the Moon as a way to prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet. Charged with returning astronauts to the Moon by 2024, NASA will establish a sustained human presence on and around the Moon by 2028 through NASA’s Artemis lunar exploration plans.For more information about the mission, go to https://mars.nasa.gov/mars2020/.For more about NASA’s Moon to Mars plans, visit https://www.nasa.gov/topics/moon-to-mars.

Badin Hall Polar Bear Plunge raises money for Hope Initiative

first_imgBadin Hall’s annual Polar Bear Plunge, in which students jump into St. Joseph’s Lake for charity, will be held Saturday from 2 – 4 p.m. The cost of participating is $5, and the proceeds from the event benefit the Hope Initiative, which seeks to serve women and orphans in Nepal.Grace Tourville | The Observer Last year, the event drew 300 people, but junior Kelly Heiniger and sophomore Kathleen Ryan, the organizers for the event, said they are hoping to draw at least as many this year. Given the warmer weather earlier in the week, Heiniger and Ryan said the water should be warmer than normal, which they hope will draw more participants.Ryan said her favorite part of organizing the event is seeing how much fun everyone has while participating.“I just love seeing people run in and see how cold it is,” she said.Students can stop in anytime during the event to complete their plunge, as it will run in shifts. Those who did not preregister at South Dining Hall on Wednesday or Thursday can still preregister online at Notre Dame Student Shop under Badin Hall. Students who prefer to register at the event should bring $5 in cash. Preregistering allows students to avoid the line before completing their plunge.Towels will be available throughout the two hours for those who complete the plunge, and hot chocolate and music will be around the lake, as well. Pictures from the event will be available on the event’s Facebook page for those who are unable to attend or want to find pictures of themselves at the event.Heiniger said people participate in the event primarily for bragging rights and to support charity.“I think the concept of doing a plunge is a pretty well-known idea. … It’s neat to have one that benefits a local charity, and it’s also a pretty established event,” Heiniger said.Before Ryan participated in the Polar Bear Plunge last year, she had always wanted to try a plunge.“I had heard about people doing plunges and I had never been able to do a plunge before — there just wasn’t one in the area,” she said. “It was so cool, not only knowing there was a plunge I could do, but that it’s only students. It’s a very Notre Dame community feel.”A committee of eight to 10 Badin residents who serve on the dorm’s Hope Commission helped Heiniger and Ryan plan the event. The commission is also responsible for planning Conscious Christmas in the fall semester, which benefits the Hope Initiative as well. The dorm became involved with the Initiative through Ann-Marie Conrado is a teaching professor and Badin Hall fellow, as well as a co-founder of the Initiative.Tags: badin hall, Hope Iniative, Polar Plunge, signature eventslast_img read more
