I-ESA Mars mission iza kuphela ngemuva kokuhlolwa kwesibili kwe-parachute - BGR

Ukuthumela i-spacecraft ku-Mars akulula, kepha ukuyibeka kwiplanethi ebomvu ngaphandle kokwenza i-crater kunzima nje. I-European Space Agency ikwazi kahle lokhu futhi ukuhlolwa kwamuva kwe-parachute iphakamise imibuzo ebucayi yokuthi ngabe i-ExoMars 2020 mission izohlala ihleliwe yini.

Ukuhlolwa kwangaphambilini ngasekupheleni kukaMeyi kwakubukeka sengathi kuyathembisa kepha kwagcina kubhekwe njengokwehluleka ngenxa yomonakalo owatholwa yilezi zinhlaka ezimbili ezinkulu ezizokwenza umsebenzi omningi. Lokhu kuvivinywa kokugcina kufaka ukwakheka okusha kohlelo lweparachute, kepha inkinga iphinde yamphinda.

I-ExoMars 2020 Lander ifakelwe uhlelo oluyinkimbinkimbi lwe-parachute olusebenzisa ngokulandelana ukuze linciphise ukuthunyelwa futhi livumele ukusingathwa okubushelelezi. ifinyelele ebusweni baseMartian. Izimpawu ezimbili ezinkulu zidonswa enye ngokulandela enye ngokuwa komshayeli omncane, ingqikithi yezimpawu ezine zidluliselwe ngokulandelana.

Isivivinyo sikaMeyi sasisuselwa kakhulu, lapho ama-trunking amane elandelana, kepha zombili izinqola ezinkulu zalimala lapho. Kwakunjalo nangochungechunge olusha lokuhlola, kodwa i-ESA iyaphawula ukuthi kubonakala sengathi umonakalo owenzekile ngaphambi kokuba i-chute ephelele inyuswe ngokuphelele.

"Kuyadumaza ukuthi ukuguqulwa kokuqanjwa kwezindlela zokuqamba ezethulwe ngenxa yokungafani kokuhlolwa kokugcina akusisizanga ukuphumelela isivivinyo sesibili, kepha njengokujwayelekile, sihlala sigxile futhi sisebenzela ukuqonda nokulungisa iphutha lapho kusenziwa. ukuyivula ngonyaka ozayo, ”kusho uFrançois Spoto, ESA esitatimendeni. "Sizimisele ukusebenzisa uhlelo olukwazi ukuletha umthwalo wethu kahle ebusweni be-Mars ukuze benze umsebenzi wabo oyingqayizivele wesayensi."

Iqembu le-ExoMars 2020 manje selizoqhubeka nomsebenzi walo futhi lizame ukuklama isisombululo. enkingeni. I-lander ne-rover ehambisana nayo imishini enamandla, kepha ukushushuka ngenkani ngokusobala kungadala ukumiswa ngokuphelele kwakho konke i-ESA eyayikuhlelele ukuthunywa.

Ngomsebenzi ohlelelwe ukwethulwa ngasekupheleni kukaJulayi noma ekuqaleni kuka-Agasti 2020, i-ESA izodinga inhlanhla encane ukuze iqinisekise ukuthi usuku lusebenza kahle futhi luhlola kahle uhlelo lweparachute.
