Ingenuity Mars Helicopter

Post by jsburger »

Well, it successfully flew today or actually yesterday. It took until the middle of last night to get the data, pictures and the video down from Mars. It went up 10', rotated 96º and hovered for almost one minute and landed back in the same location. NASA has named the location on Mars as the Wright Brothers Field. It also had a small piece of the original Wright flyer on board.

Absolutely amazing! In less than 120 years we have flown on Earth and another planet in the solar system.
