NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter aced an ‘absolutely beautiful flight’ on Mars. Here’s the video.


NASA’s Mars helicopter Ingenuity just made aviation history, and its robotic buddy caught the whole thing on video.

Early this morning (April 19), Ingenuity aced the first-ever powered flight on a world beyond Earth. The 4-lb. (1.8 kilograms) chopper rose 10 feet (3 meters) above the floor of Jezero Crater, stayed aloft in Mars’ thin air for 39 seconds and came down for a pinpoint landing at its takeoff spot.
