NASA’s Ingenuity Helicopter is on Its Way to Mars With the Perseverance Rover

When NASA’s Perseverance rover lands on Mars on February 18, 2021, it will be carrying a small but mighty passenger: Ingenuity, the Mars Helicopter. Ingenuity is a technology experiment and will be the first aircraft to attempt controlled flight on another planet. Perseverance will deploy Ingenuity onto the surface of Mars, and Ingenuity is expected to attempt its first flight test in the spring of this year.


Comments:

This is super exciting. I would love to watch it 'live' (with only status delays from transmission of signals from Mars back to earth).

Dennis:

I'm with you -- I'll be watching the livestream too:
