Raw video of Engineers testing the rover’s seven-metre-long arm, the end of which is filled with sensors and instruments to study the red planet.
Talk about a robot’s power….
A time-lapse video from NASA’s 2020 Mars Rover, to the execution of an impressive bicep curl up.’ In the video, which was shot at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, the 7-foot-long arm that can be seen with the use of an 88-pound tower is filled with sensors and cameras.
“This was our first chance to look at the arm and the tower to move in concert with each other, and to make sure that everything is working as advertised – do not block or otherwise interfere with the proper operation of the system,” said brian Levine, integration engineer for Mars 2020, in a statement. “Stand there, look at the arm and the turret by moving around, you can’t help but be amazed that the rover is going to be in the room, and in less than a year to perform the exact movements on the march in less than two.”

The arm has five electric motors, and five joints, according to NASA. On the Red Planet, the poor, and the tower will be used for the study of the Martian surface.
The Mars 2020 mission will launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida in July.a.s. The rover is expected to march on Nov. 18, 2021.
In November, the government space agency, announced that it has been chosen for the location of the Mars-2020 and land rover on the Red Planet.

The Red Planet is still a source of fascination. Scientists recently announced the discovery of the layers of ice, buried a meter below the Mars ‘ north pole that could help you in unlocking the Red Planet’s history.
Last year, in a major announcement, NASA revealed that the Curiosity rover had found organic compounds on Mars.
NASA’s long-term goal is to have a manned mission to Mars in the 2030s. However, the former astronaut Buzz Aldrin thinks that a little later, a target date of 2040 is a more realistic one.
APOLLO 11 ASTRONAUT MICHAEL COLLINS DOES NOT AGREE WITH NASA’S PLANNED MOON AND BACK, ” WE’LL HAVE TO SHOOT IT DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF MARS
In a recent interview, in 2016, the Gemini 12 and Apollo 11 astronaut, told Fox News that by the year 2040, the astronauts were able to visit Mars’ moon Phobos, which would serve as a sort of stepping-stone to the Red Planet.
Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins also wants to be in the us to try and see the sights right on Mars for future exploration of the area.
