Event: The Mars atmosphere simulator is a significant experimental setup for testing rotor performance in the simulated atmosphere of Mars. To improve the recovery speed of air pressure inside the tank after the experiment is completed, a larger size air inlet valve is replaced outside the tank, thus reducing the air pressure recovery time to less than 60 minutes. To solve a potential safety hazard that the experimenters are locked in the tank by mistake, a safety valve is installed inside the tank, which can be used for self-rescue in case of emergency to protect the life of the experimenters.
