Celebrate the successful Mars 2020 landing and the successful flights of the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter – the first powered, controlled flight on another world – with a fun light-up pin! The front features a gold stylized silhouette of Ingenuity set against a red Martian sky, artwork Sofie Shen. Flip the switch and a red LED on the antenna starts blinking up to 2500 times per minute, simulating the 2500 rpm speed of Ingenuity's helicopter rotors - faster than any helicopter on Earth! After about 20 seconds, the blinking slows to approximately 1 blink every two seconds, a low power mode which will continue to blink for months, if not years! This is a wearable homage to Ingenuity's ability to conserve power and achieve mighty things with its small solar panels and batteries.
Pin-back badge is 2 inches square with a metal butterfly clasp and powered by a CR2032 coin cell battery (included). Designed in California and made in China.
