NASA's Ingenuity Helicopter Takes Flight on Mars


What Happened:

  • On Monday, NASA's Ingenuity helicopter took flight on Mars achieving the first powered and controlled flight on another planet in human history.

  • NASA's goal was a 40 second flight and the Ingenuity helicopter was able to hit all of its targets.

  • Because Mars' atmosphere is much thinner that Earth's, the helicopter had to spin at 2,500 revolutions per minute, five times faster than a helicopter on Earth.

  • The successful flight is considered a tremendous milestone in human scientific history.
