According to the “Metro”, the new helicopter does not have to deal with soil Mars such as other robotic vehicles, and instead will move around the planet to provide NASA with an opportunity to close the slopes, infiltrate the caves and land in hard-to-reach places.

“We expect to complete our final tests and improvements to the helicopter,” said Mimi Ong, project manager at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “We expect the future helicopter to weigh only 1.8 kg and come with a high-resolution camera, flying over Mars “.
